"Most of all I have to thank Winston Churchill".

"We look forward to picking up where we left off". From 1996-1999 she won lead actress in a comedy for "Mad About You".

With awards juggernaut Downton Abbey" finished and "Game of Thrones ineligible, this year's Emmys are seen as the first in years in which any show could take home the most prestigious statuettes.
