The upcoming seventh season of Veep on HBO will be its last, and at Sunday night’s Emmy Awards, star Anna Chlumsky talked about how thankful she is to have some more time with the HBO comedy before it goes off the air.

“I’m so grateful they’re allowing us to savor it,” she told E!’s Giuliana Rancic on the Emmys red carpet. “It’s so impeccably written.”

Chlumsky, who was nominated for the fifth consecutive year in the role of zany Selina Meyer campaign manager-turned-lobbyist Amy Brookheimer, was happy to get the nod once more. “I’m enjoying being invited to the party once again,” she said. Chlumsky ultimately lost the award to Saturday Night Live‘s Kate McKinnon.

Maybe losing the Emmy for the fifth time wasn’t a surprise to the actress, but former secretary of state Sean Spicer making a cameo on stage with his podium certainly was. Chlumsky will go down in the GIF hall of fame for her reaction:
