Why Tony Hale Should Win an Emmy for Veep

Originally posted 08/24/2014 06:05PM

Why Julia Louis-Dreyfus Should Win the Emmy for Veep

Originally posted 08/23/2014 06:15PM

The character of Selina Meyer on HBO's Veep is one of the most densely and skillfully written in all of television right now, and star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, nominated for outstanding actress in a comedy series, is giving a virtuoso performance in the role: petty, egomaniacal, shallow and mean.
