Emmys 2017: Julia Louis-Dreyfus makes history with sixth consecutive win

Julia Louis-Dreyfus could potentially make history tonight at the Emmy Awards!

It was her 10th Emmy win overall, including producing credits on "Seinfeld", "Old Christine" and "Veep".

Louis-Dreyfus also set a new Emmy record with six consecutive wins for the same role. Viewers will see her character Selina Meyer for one more season in the show's finale. She also tied Cloris Leachman for the most Emmys won by a single performer, with 8.

Donald Glover became the first black victor of the award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, while Master of None's Lena Waithe became the first black woman to win the award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.

With awards juggernaut Downton Abbey" finished and "Game of Thrones ineligible, this year's Emmys are seen as the first in years in which any show could take home the most prestigious statuettes.

Those in the United Kingdom will also have their chance to see the much-awaited bout on Box Nation by 2 a.m. local time . Monroe, from NY , refused to be drawn into trash talk but is hoping Golovkin beats Alvarez so he can have a re-match.

Not only did Louis-Dreyfus beat out "Mom" actress Allison Janney, who has two lead actress Emmys of her own, but she also edged out "Black-ish" actress Tracee Ellis Ross and Jane Fonda (Netflix's "Grace and Frankie").

Many say the 69 annual Primetime Emmy Awards celebrated both women and diversity.

But the prize for biggest laughs of the night went to host Colbert, who showcased his clever, pointed, self-effacing wit in a pre-ceremony song-and-dance number, sketches, and a monologue taking aim at Hollywood and, of course, politics (featuring a surprise cameo by former White House press secretary Sean Spicer).

"This is and continues to be the role of a lifetime", she said during her acceptance speech on Sunday evening.

This would mean it won't be eligible at the 2018 Emmys, as shows that are nominated that year have to have broadcast episodes prior to May 31.
