"Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus scored her record-breaking fifth consecutive Emmylast night for her portrayal of unhinged politico Selina Meyer and make no mistake — she deserved it. In the HBO comedy’s fifth season, the Seinfeld vet revealed new layers of her hilariously narcissistic, acid-tongued alter ego. This was particularly the case in 'Mother,' an episode that found Selina at her most relatable as she struggled to process the imminent death of her mom — a woman she loathed.

The fact that Louis-Dreyfus is still able to surprise us this deep into Veep‘s run is a testament to her acting prowess, and is the reason she remains an unbeatable Emmy force." - Michael Ausiello via TV Line
