As she continues fighting her battle with breast cancer, Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Julia Louis-Dreyfus watched the 2018 show from home. But at the Shine Auditorium in Los Angeles, the actress, 57, was honored and celebrated for her work on Veep with the award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a comedy series.
Since she wasn’t able to make it, presenters Connie Britton and Mandy Moore accepted the statue for her. “Julia, we’re thinking of you,” Britton said. “And we love you and we’re happy to accept that actor on your behalf.”
