With her 5th Emmy win, Louis-Dreyfus becomes the only actress to take home 3 Emmys for 3 different comedies
Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home another Emmy for her role as Selina Meyer on “Veep,” and she served up another memorable Emmy moment in the process.
In a treat for “Seinfeld” fans and fans of cheeky television in general, Louis-Dreyfus was grabbed on her way up to the podium by Bryan Cranston. The Emmy-winning “Breaking Bad” actor didn’t just want to bestow a congratulatory hug on his former co-star, though, and a full blown makeout session ensued.

“Oh yeah, he was on ‘Seinfeld,'” Louis-Dreyfus quipped onstage after accepting her trophy, referencing an earlier moment during the show with Cranston when she pretended to forget he appeared on the show as Dr. Tim Whatley, a one-time love interest for her Elaine Benes.

Louis-Drefyus has won the Emmy for Best Leading Actress in a Comedy every year “Veep” has been eligible, and she previously won Best Leading Actress in a Comedy in 2006 for “The New Adventures of Old Christine” and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy in 1996 for “Seinfeld.”
The actress has a history of memorable Emmy speeches. Last year she enlisted the help of “Veep” co-star Tony Hale and accepted her award in character as the most incompetent vice president ever.
