Julia Louis-Dreyfus has a few more records to her name. With her two wins at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards for TV comedy actress and comedy ensemble, the “Veep” star is now the most decorated performer at SAG with nine trophies.
The previous record was eight, held by Julianna Margulies (“ER,” “The Good Wife”) and Alec Baldwin (“30 Rock”).
Louis-Dreyfus’ solo victory also made her the first actress in either TV genre to win five individual trophies. It was her second straight and third total SAG for “Veep,” and she has two more at home for “Seinfeld,” in addition to three ensemble prizes for “Seinfeld.” She was previously tied with Margulies and Tina Fey (“30 Rock”) with four individual wins. (Baldwin holds the overall individual record with seven, which he won consecutively.)
“Veep”’s ensemble win was its first and also ended the three-year reign of “Orange Is the New Black.”
Louis-Dreyfus, who was diagnosed with breast cancer a day after winning her record sixth straight Emmy in September, did not attend the show. Matt Walsh, who accepted on behalf of the cast, gave her a shout-out in his speech, which he pretended to fumble through.
