(CNN) - Not many politicians go to the Emmy's but this year at least one politician, although fictional, took the stage to accept an award.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her second consecutive best comedy actress Emmy for her role on HBO's "Veep."
Accepting her award in character, complete with a whispering underling by her side, Louis-Dreyfus thanked her family and the cast and crew of the show where she plays Selina Meyer, a fictional vice president of the United States.
Although the show follows Meyer as she makes political deals and delivers speeches, it's still unclear exactly which party she's working for.
Asked about her character's political affiliation on CNN's "New Day" Louis-Dreyfus said she thinks that will become clearer when season 3 starts in spring 2014 but that Meyer is a "straddler".
"I could see a situation where she might switch parties and then switch back again just to sort of stay alive politically," said Louis-Dreyfus.
Also asked about her latest performance in the movie "Enough Said" with the late James Gandolfini, Louis-Dreyfus said the experience is something she will always treasure.
