The Veeples took the stage at the 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which were held Sunday evening, January 21st, as HBO’s VEEP took home the night’s biggest trophy for comedy for its sixth season, and the show’s star Julia Louis-Dreyfus won the award for best actress in a comedy. Haddad Media CEO Tammy Haddad serves as a consultant on the show.
“I was hand chosen because I play a spokesperson — I’m very well-spoken on the show and in real life,” said Matt Walsh, who plays press spokesperson Mike McLintock, on the show.
VEEP has a long list of awards, winning outstanding comedy at the Emmys for three consecutive years, while Louis-Dreyfus has won best comedy actress at the Emmys six years running!
While HBO has not announced the premiere date, VEEP’s seventh and final season is sure to be can’t-miss TV.
