Worst: 'Veep' Shuts Out 'Atlanta,' 'Master of None'
Emmy voters tend to find a comedy series that they like and and lavish awards on it, even when it's up against better shows – see: Frasier in the Nineties or Modern Family in the early aughts. Case in point: Veep has been racking up Emmy after Emmy in recent years, and once again took home the award for Outstanding Comedy Series. (Julia Louis-Dreyfus also won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her turn as disgraced president Selina Meyer, her sixth consecutive time snagging the award.) But in a year with some seriously formidable competition – Atlanta, Master of None, Black-ish – it would have been nice to see something other than the admittedly hilarious HBO show come out on top. And given its next season will be its last, don't count on that happening just yet. AP
