Why Veep (Probably) Won't Be Winning Any Emmys Next Year

Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross are both nominated for black-ish

Donald Glover doubled down on historic wins, as the first black actor to win Outstanding Lead Actor in a comedy series since Robert Guillaume won for Benson in 1985 and the first black person to win an Emmy for comedy directing ever. The show won six awards in all.

What's more, Reed Morano received the Emmy for Oustanding Direction in a Drama for her work on The Handmaid's Tale!

The nominees: Veep is up against fellow former victor Modern Family, as well as newcomer Atlanta, and previous nominees black-ish, Master of None, Silicon Valleyand Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. After back-to-back wins for Transparent, Jill Soloway, who rally-cried for Hollywood to topple the patriarchy, was shut out of the Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series. As expected, Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale took home the Outstanding Drama prize, while HBO's Veep snagged Outstanding Comedy.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus broke the record for most Emmys won by a performer for the same show when she wearned best actress in a comedy series for "Veep" Sunday night.

Speaking backstage at the Emmy Awards Sunday following his win for best supporting actor in a comedy, Baldwin addressed the surprise appearance by the former White House press secretary as a part of a comedy bit that opened the show.

Veep and Saturday Night Live were also big winners. Additionally, this win ties her with Cloris Leachman for most total Emmy acting wins (they both now have eight). "And for everybody that showed us so much love of this episode, thank you for embracing a little Indian boy from SC and a little queer, black girl from the South Side of Chicago".

"I've been acting for a long time, and that this should happen now, I don't have the words, and I thank you", the 61-year-old Dowd said. "I'm just incredibly honored and amazed this happened to me".

What should win: One potential spoilsport could be FX's Atlanta, especially if the Academy's members want to prove that they're young and hip. Meanwhile, Outstanding TV Movie went to the "San Junipero" episode of Netflix's Black Mirror, and HBO's Big Little Lies took home Outstanding Limited Series. "You are courageous and strong and smart", she said.

Variety, Writing Series: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

As host, Stephen Colbert did a great job, mixing pretaped bits (with RuPaul as Emmy, with the cast of "Westworld" as a malfunctioning robot host) with live gags (many aimed at his "Late Show" target Donald Trump).
