Don't worry, they do have nine Emmys

The Veep cast may win big at the Emmys, but on Sunday night’s Golden Globes they left the award show empty-handed.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus (who was nominated for best performance by an actress in a television series, comedy or musical) shared a fun photo of the group during the show holding “loser” signs on their forehead.

“This is us,” the 54-yerar-old actress wrote.

The snap showed the group – which included Louis-Dreyfus, who plays politician Selina Meyer; Tony Hale, who plays bag man Gary Walsh; Reid Scott, who plays conniving Dan Egan; Matt Walsh, who plays outdated communications director Mike McLintock, and Sam Richardson, who plays adorably incompetent aide Richard Splett – all took in their award shut-out in varying emotions.

In addition to Louis-Dreyfus’ nod the show was up for the award for best television series, comedy or musical, which they lost to Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle.

Hale, 45, also shared his own losing snap on Instagram, posing with Walsh, Richardson and Timothy Simons (who plays annoying Jonah) and showing their “loser faces.”

Despite starring on one of the most iconic TV sitcoms in history (Seinfeld) and critical darling Veep, Louis-Dreyfus has only ever won one award from the Golden Globes – best supporting actress in a series, mini-series or TV film for Seinfeld in 1994. (That might explain why she’s the only one grinning in the photo.) This was also the first time that the entire show has been nominated for its own category.

However, considering that the show has won a whopping nine Emmy Awards (including wins for Hale and Louis-Dreyfus) as well as awards from Critics’ Choice and the Screen Actor’s Guild, we’re sure that they’ll do just fine.
