Julia Louis-Dreyfus made history Sunday night, winning the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series — and becoming the first TV actress to win five individual trophies.
I wish I could have been @SAGawards tonight but have to admit it’s pretty fun to watch in my pj’s. So honored to win. So proud to be a union member. So happy for my @VeepHBO bozos for winning ensemble award. Miss being at the table with you all. How was the chicken?

The Veep star was not present to accept her award. The actress announced she was diagnosed with breast cancer in September, a few days after she won her sixth consecutive Emmy for her portrayal of Selina Meyer in Veep. HBO subsequently halted production on the comedy series while Louis-Dreyfus received treatment; the show will resume filming in August, and the new episodes will air in 2019.
