Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her sixth straight Outstanding Comedy Actress in a Leading Role award at the 69th#Primetime Emmy Awards.

She also tied Cloris Leachman for the most acting Emmy wins with eight.

The Veep star sang about Trump in show host's, Stephen Colbert, opening song at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Accepting her award, Louis-Dreyfus thanked the other women nominated in the category, as well as HBO and the writers, cast and crew.

The producers of "Veep" have announced that its next season will be its last, affording Louis-Dreyfus one more opportunity to win for the character and the show. "Atlanta" took home the trophy for the former, while "Master Of None" picked up the writing award.

Just like the character in the movie she produced , Jolie herself is a prime example of a strong woman. This is also the actress' second public appearance following her split from Brad Pitt last September .

Comedy legends Norman Lear and Carol Burnett presented Emmy award for best comedy series, which went for the third time to "Veep" - a comedy legend in its own right. The series has been an awards-season juggernaut for the last few years, kicking Modern Family off its Emmys pedestal in the best-comedy category after a long streak.

Louis-Dreyfus also wasn't afraid to get political at the show, nodding to the eerie way Veep has collided with real-world politics.

Now-legendary Louis-Dreyfus accepted her award toward the end of the evening, and kept her speech to the packed house at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater short but still meaningful.

Louis-Dreyfus has won every year she's played mercurial president Meyer, and this was her 24th overall Emmy nomination. She also joked about a potential storyline for the upcoming season.

Aside from Janney, Louis-Dreyfus contended against Pamela Adlon ("Better Things"), Jane Fonda ("Grace and Frankie"), Ellie Kemper ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"), Tracee Ellis Ross ("Black-ish"), and Lily Tomlin ("Grace and Frankie").
