    As we all know, Veep is currently in its fifth season. Its star, Julia Louis-Dreyfus has won an Emmy for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for every one of the show’s first four seasons (she also has an Emmy as a producer for the show due to its Comedy Series win last year). If she wins this year, she will break Helen Hunt’s record for consecutive Emmy wins in the category of four. Hunt won four consecutive Emmy awards for Mad About You from 1996-99.

    Do you guys think JLD will break the record this year or will Hunt still be tied with Louis-Dreyfus for the record?

    Barring Fonda getting in and sending the right tape, I suspect there’s at least a 90 percent chance JLD repeats again.

    Yes she will and she will break that record every year Veep stays on air.

    Seeing as her first season Emmy was really Amy Poehler’s she shouldn’t be about to break the record, but chances are pretty high she will. I think until the stars align perfectly for someone else (breakout star/respected veteran, acclaimed show, support in other categories, perfect episode submission) it’ll probably just happen until the show ends, she stops submitting, or there is somehow a widely agreed upon quality dip for the show.

    I will say if anyone has a chance, I think it might actually be Ellie Kemper. She wouldn’t be my winner but I think she has the closest to the above qualities.

    This is Veep‘s most accessible season and she’s never been better (Mother!). It’s crazy saying this about someone who has won the Emmy for the past four seasons, but it would be a crime if she were to lose.

    She’s the best actor, playing the best character, on the best show. Unbeatable combo. Winner until Veep takes its leave.

    I’m trying to recall if Don Knotts won his five Emmys for The Andy Griffith Show (CBS) consecutively.

    If the answer is no, we’re looking for a first-ever occurrence of an actor winning five consecutive years of Emmys for one series.

    Yes, Don Knotts won his five Emmys consecutively for The Andy Griffith Show. JLD winning five straight for one series would be a record in the Lead categories.

    Poehler was never a threat to win despite fans of Park and Rec saying to the contrary.

    Doesn’t mean she didn’t deserve it.

    Was it consecutive?

    1960 – 1961
    1961 – 1962
    1962 – 1963
    Albert Paulsen winning 1963-1964
    No award in 1964-1965
    1965-1966
    1966-1967

    Sarah Jessica Parker returns to HBO with a new dramedy series called Divorce. There’s a trailer for it on You Tube and it looks solid. Very possible she’ll return to Lead Comedy Actress where she is a strong alternative to Dreyfus if they’re looking for a change up. Though I doubt her work on Veep will ever dip in quality. I think a strong and established name for TV can open up voters to someone else.

    SJP looks great to me, but I loved SATC so am biased.

    JLD is pretty much a lock to win again. SJP seems a likely nominee but I doubt she wins over JLD.
