We all love Lucy, but when it comes to Emmy nominations, Julia Louis-Dreyfus finally has the iconic comedienne beat.
On Thursday, the erstwhile Seinfeld star made Emmy history when she received her 14th Emmy nomination in the category of outstanding lead actress in a comedy series, surpassing the record long-held by I Love Lucy star – and enduring TV favorite – Lucille Ball.
Louis-Dreyfus, 52, nabbed the nod for her role as gaffe-prone Vice President Selina Meyer on the HBO show Veep. It's her second nomination in this category for her fictitious beltway role, and she took home the statue in 2012.

At 52, Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus seems to have found what women of all ages are looking for – body confidence.
"Getting older," the actress tells Health magazine for its July/August cover story, now on newsstands. "It's like, 'Yeah, this is who I am, f––– off.' As opposed to, 'This is who I am, I'm sorry.' You know, there's something about getting older and owning who you are that is a good thing."
Her confidence translates to another everyday issue women deal with: cellulite. The star's tip? "I try to push the worry down," she says, "and pull the Spanx up!"

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, star of HBO's political comedy Veep, says having lunch with the real Vice President Joe Biden and meeting his staffers – who showed some resemblance to the characters in her show – was nothing short of "mind-blowing."
"One woman said 'Hi, I'm Allison. I'm the Dan Egan of the office,' " the Emmy winning-actress tells Katie Couric in an interview airing on Wednesday's Katie. "There was a Gary, this guy who carried the vice president's bags all the time. It really was bizarre."
What happened at lunch in Biden's private office also could have been a scene from Veep, in which Louis-Dreyfus plays the self-interested and gaffe-prone Vice President Selina Meyer.

Reid Scott's romantic persona on HBO's critically acclaimed Veep is surrounded by politics, but when it comes to his real love life, he's apparently drama free.
The actor, 35, is engaged to longtime girlfriend Elspeth Keller, a source confirms to PEOPLE.
Going the opposite direction of his serial-dating TV character Dan Egan, Scott went the traditional route and "secretly flew to San Francisco to ask Elspeth's father for her hand in marriage," the source says.

For some reason I started Emmy night worrying that Hugh Bonneville of PBS Masterpiece's Downton Abbey would win best actor in a drama, or that there'd be a Downton sweep. He gives a perfectly lovely performance, but it's essentially like watching Piers Morgan mellowed by a life of having valets brush his evening jacket.
But Damian Lewis won for Homeland, allowing my head to clear and track what I thought the Emmys got right and got wrong.
Got right: Homeland, Showtime.
Mad Men and Breaking Bad both had tremendous seasons, but neither was as brilliantly focused right out of the gate as this new political thriller. It was fitting, too, that the acting awards went to both Lewis and Claire Danes: They're a sort of Janus head – two faces, terrorist and counter-terrorist, each collapsing under the pressure of a duty to protect (hers) and destroy (his).

If you ask why I am crying, it's because Madeleine Stowe, star of ABC's Revenge, is not among the Emmy nominees. In fact, I am crying just as she would: My eyes are ringed with big, ready-to-drop tears of wrath and sorrow.
Otherwise, the latest batch of nominees is pretty satisfying.
It's great to see Lena Dunham and her fantastic HBO comedy Girls up for best actress and show. (But nothing for the supporting cast?) Dunham, who plays a smart, funny, self-absorbed young writer, is running against her comic antithesis: Zooey Deschanel of FOX's New Girl, on which she plays (and plays very well) a cupcake.
