Throughout the history of Emmy awards, no single actress has ever emerged to take home a prize for every single season of her show. The Veep’s Julia Louis Dreyfus has; however, dared to break the system. Having taken home an acting award for every single season of HBO’s knockout comedy ‘Veep’, Louis is now competing for her seventh and final award in the category. The Emmy darling can set records if she scores an honor at the 71st Emmy Awards on 22nd September 2019. But that is only the case if she outperforms the glaring influence of other competitors in the category. Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s Rachel Brosnahan are posing a serious threat to Louis’ odds of completing her winning streak.
11 Emmy Wins For Veep Season 7 Star Julia Louis Dreyfus
Even before Veep, Julia Louis Dreyfus had dominated the Emmy comedy races with her parts in Seinfield and The New Adventures of Old Christine. The Mark Twain Award laureate scored every Supporting nod for Seinfield after 1992. Then later, she also went on to grab an acting nod for all five seasons of The New Adventures of Old Christine (winning once). Julia later hopped on the Veep wagon immediately after Christine ended, subsequently developing an Emmy legacy for the fiercely driven Selina Meyer.
Can Phoebe Waller-Bridge Or Rachel Brosnahan Steal The Thunder For Louis?
After six consecutive unflinching victories at the Emmys, Julia Louis Dreyfus is gearing up for parting prize for HBO’s Veep. This time; however, given Veep’s extended hiatus between season 6 and 7, Louis will have to battle out with other budding competitors to secure her row. Fleabag and its lead Pheobe Waller-Bridge had made quite an impact on viewers with their non-quintessential treatment of comedy. Additionally, past winner Rachel Brosnahan was even more marvelous this year in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 2. Fleabag Season 2
Critics at Gold Derby report that even with stiff competition from new contestants, the odds for Julia Louis Dreyfus to take another Emmy home are very high. 23/25 critics are predicting a victory for Louis. One of the remaining two critics, Robert Rorke (New York Post) has noted the possible emergence of Waller-Bridge as a winner since the star has made a mark in the academy with 4 nominations. Another critic, Ed Martin (Media Village) believes that the days of glory for Veep are over. It is; in fact, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel aka. Rachel Brosnahan who will start a new streak by taking home an acting prize for season 2 too.
