'Veep' Wins Outstanding Comedy Series At The 2015 Emmys

"Modern Family" lost for the first time in six years.

"Veep" nabbed Outstanding Comedy Series at Sunday's Emmys, breaking the five-time "Modern Family" winning streak. The celebrated HBO series won for its fourth season. Had "Modern Family" prevailed, it would have topped the record it shares with "Frasier" as the category's most-honored show.

"Veep" also bested "Louie," "Parks and Recreation," "Silicon Valley," "Transparent" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt." The political comedy won several other awards throughout the night, including repeat victories for Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Lead Actress in a Comedy Series) and Tony Hale (Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series). Simon Blackwell, Armando Iannucci and Tony Roche also won Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for the episode "Election Night."
