All the historic wins at the 69th annual Emmy awards

Mom's Allison Janney was seen as a strong contender for the award this year, and so it's quite possible that this is who will win in 2018 with Louis-Dreyfuss ineligible.

It was her 10th Emmy win overall, including producing credits on "Seinfeld", "Old Christine" and "Veep". Louis-Dreyfus submitted the season six finale, "Groundbreaking", for Emmy consideration this year.

Cloris Leachman, who also studied theatre at Northwestern, earned her eight Emmys in a variety of categories: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy, Guest Actress in a Comedy Series, Guest Actress in a Drama Series, Continued or Single Performance by a Supporting Actress in a Variety or Musical, and more.

She has been nominated for 24 Emmys over her decades-long career.

"More great roles for women, please", said Kidman as she and her fellow executive producer and co-star Reese Witherspoon accepted the miniseries' award.

Donald Glover poses with his Emmys for Directing a Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for "Atlanta" at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, California September 18, 2017. The former White House press secretary made a surprise Emmys appearance, wheeling in his own podium. Both, unsurprisingly, got big laughs. While sipping "specialty cocktails" of the "dry, British" variety, Colbert said, "Yes, it's so high quality, they can only make it once a week".

Louis-Dreyfus-a fan of Leachman's-admitted she kept hearing quotes from Leachman's Young Frankenstein character in her head.

"Veep" star Julia Louis Dreyfus revealed during her Emmys acceptance speech that the show had planned for an impeachment to take place but dropped it in case President Trump was impeached.

The political satire comedy show even managed to replace "Modern Family" on the Emmy stage in the best-comedy category.
