Emmy Awards: HBO Sweeps Emmys with “Game of Thrones,” “Veep,” Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jeffrey Tambor, Rami Malek, Tatiana Maslany


HBO swept the Emmy Awards tonight winning Best Comedy and Best Drama for “Veep” and “Game of Thrones.” Plus Julia Louis Dreyfus won her 5th Emmy for “Veep.”

No wins at all for network broadcast TV– Fox, ABC, NBC or CBS. Nada. Some winners were on shows that aren’t even on TV!

BEST COMEDY– “Veep.” Yay!!!!

BEST DRAMA– “Game of Thrones”

Best Supporting Actor Comedy– Louie Anderson, Baskets. I predicted this. Had to be. The guys from “Veep” crossed each other out. But Anderson was special.

Best Supporting Actress Comedy– Kate McKinnon, “Saturday Night Live” — first win. Ahhh….she’s being beeped a lot…

Directing Comedy Series– Jill Soloway, “Transparent”– she dropped an F bomb and is wearing something awful…
