It’s been an emotional week for Julia Louis-Dreyfus. On Friday her father William Louis-Dreyfus passed away, and on Sunday the comedian won her fifth consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for her show Veep.
In a heart-wrenching tribute just two days after losing her dad, Louis-Dreyfus tearfully dedicates her Emmy to her father. During her acceptance speech, her voice quavers and you can see the actress physically shaking as she talks about her father.
“I’m so glad that he liked ‘Veep,’ because his opinion was the one that really mattered.”
