Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Emmy Streak Stays Alive, Jeffrey Tambor Wins for “Transparent”

While she faced buzzworthy competition in the form of Amy Schumer, whose profile has soared this past year, and sentimental competition in the form of Amy Poehler, whose “Parks & Recreation” ended this year, Julia Louis-Dreyfus ultimately kept her Emmy streak alive.

The actress won a fourth-straight Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy for her work on “Veep.”

In addition to topping the aforementioned “Inside Amy Schumer” and “Parks & Recreation” actresses, Louis-Dreyfus also bested Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Lisa Kudrow (The Comeback), and Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie).

— On the actor side, this year’s prize went to “Transparent” star Jeffrey Tambor.

Other nominees for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy included Anthony Anderson (black-ish), Don Cheadle (House of Lies), Will Forte (The Last Man On Earth), Louis CK (Louie), Matt LeBlanc (Episodes), and William H. Macy (Shameless)
