Illinois Native Hoping To Score Second Consecutive Emmy Award
Rachel Brosnahan is no stranger to winning major hardware. Any time she has been nominated in her short, but illustrious acting career she wins.
It should come as no surprise that Brosnahan was nominated again for an Emmy. This time though, the competition for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series is fierce.
Julia Louis Dreyfus has never lost when nominated for Emmy Award during her time on the HBO show, Veep.
Louis-Dreyfus, of course, has never lost an Emmy for 'Veep' and was ineligible last year because the show took an extended break to accommodate her breast cancer diagnosis.
Dreyfus is back this year, and she along with Brosnahan, Christina Applegate (Dead to Me), Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll), Catherine O'Hara (Schitt's Creek), and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) are all up for the big prize.
Awards predictors believe it's a two-person race and it should come down to Louis-Dreyfus and Brosnahan to take the top prize.
