Moss won her first Emmy and thanked her mother in a speech that was peppered with expletives.

First-time Emmy victor Donald Glover also made history, as the first African American director to win for a comedy series.

The nominees: Veep is up against fellow former victor Modern Family, as well as newcomer Atlanta, and previous nominees black-ish, Master of None, Silicon Valleyand Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Do you think the right woman was named this year's Outstanding Actress in a Comedy? Hulu became the first streaming service to win the best drama category for "the Handmaid's Tale".

With her victory tonight, Louis-Dreyfus pulls ahead of her category rival Allison Janney, who entering tonight's ceremony also boasted seven career acting trophies and hoped to win for her performance on "Mom".

Even more impressively, Louis-Dreyfus now stands alongside the legendary Cloris Leachman as the most fêted performer in Emmy Awards history with eight overall wins. We will update this list of Emmy nominees live.
