Emmy voters showed their deep support Veep on election night, as HBO’s political comedy took home four trophies on Sunday. (The show also claimed an Emmy for casting at the Creative Arts Emmys last weekend.) Last night’s wins included Outstanding Comedy Series (thus ending Modern Family’s five-years-in-a-row streak), Lead Actress (Julia Louis-Dreyfus, her fourth win in this role), Supporting Actor (Tony Hale, his second), and Writing (for “Election Night,” which was co-written by former showrunner Armando Ianucci, who departed the show after this past season). EW caught up with the President and her bag man as they celebrated Veep’s landslide victory.
EW: Was winning the best comedy Emmy in Armando’s final year extra meaningful?
