> Show with most wins: Veep (9)

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has the most Emmy wins of any actor. Like others listed, the Emmys are not all for acting — though many are. Louis-Dreyfus holds the record for most Emmys won by a performer for the same role in the same series (6) for her portrayal of Selina Meyer, the vice president of the United States, in HBO’s “Veep.” She has also won three Emmys for her work as executive producer on the series. Prior to “Veep,” she won an Emmy for her performance as Elaine Benes on “Seinfeld” in 1996 and one for her lead role as Christine Campbell on CBS’s “The New Adventures Of Old Christine.” Louis-Dreyfus was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2014.
