We’re not quite sure how Julia Louis-Dreyfus beat Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to win two consecutive best actress Emmy awards for Veep, but her acceptance speech last night was pretty good. We mostly like the fact that she and Tony Hale stayed in character as a public figure and her “faux public relations rep“, who has to remind her to tell the viewers at home just much she loves her family.
We can see why Dreyfus chose not to repeat last year’s “Amy totally deserved this” bit, though: it obviously didn’t work last time. (Watching co-star Anna Chlumsky text during the speech is a nice finishing touch.)
