It's her sixth in a row.

Julia Louis-Drefus has made history by winning the Emmy for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for the sixth consecutive year.

Other winners in the comedy category include Glover (Directing, “Atlanta”), Alec Baldwin (Supporting Actor, “Saturday Night Live”), and Aziz Ansari and Lena Waithe (Writing, “Master of None”).

Stephen Colbert hosted this year’s ceremony, the 69th, from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Avail yourself of the full list of winners here.
