Los Angeles, USA, Sep 17 (EFE).- The political satire TV series “Veep” starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus won Sunday its third consecutive Outstanding Comedy Series award at the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

Other nominees in the same category were “Atlanta”, “Black-ish”, “Master of None”, “Modern Family”, “Silicon Valley” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”

Dreyfus made history just moments before when she won the best comedy actress trophy for the sixth consecutive year, breaking the record for an artist’s award for the same character.

Recently it was announced that the series will bid farewell to the small screen with its seventh season.

Focusing on the figure of the vice president of the United States, portrayed by Louis-Dreyfus, the series which ridicules and mocks politics, also features Anna Chlumsky, Tony Hale and Matt Walsh in its cast.
