(Watch) Julia Louis Dreyfus Could Win an Emmy Award for Her Own Mark Twain Prize Tribute Speech


If you missed Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s acceptance speech for the Mark Twain Prize the other night, here it is. Watch the whole thing. No kidding, she could win an Emmy for this performance, seriously– I am not saying that in a “Veep” way. It was really marvelous and showed why she deserved the prize. Whoever wrote this — Julia? David Mandel? Brad Hall? all of them? — deserves something, too. What a relief to see a classy evening on TV.
