First Black Person to Win Emmy for Directing a Comedy
Donald Glover was a huge hit at the CBS ceremony, not only winning his first two Emmys for his work on "Atlanta -- both in front of and behind the camera -- but also breaking down barriers in the process as the first black person to win the Emmy in the Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series category.
He was also one of the best dressed stars of the night in that purple tuxedo. So much winning.
"Veep" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home her sixth consecutive Emmy award Sunday for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and every win was for portraying the same character: Selina Meyer.
As of 2016, Louis-Dreyfus was tied with Candice Bergen, who won five times for playing Murphy Brown.
"This is and continues to be the role of a lifetime and an adventure of utter utter joy," she said during her acceptance speech.
The final "Veep" season will air in 2018, and if the actress wins again, she'll break another record: most Primetime Emmy wins by a single performer. Her eight wins throughout her career currently tie Cloris Leachman's Emmy achievements.
