It was her second SAG for Veep and fifth overall.

2. The actor, who received the first award of the night, set the tone with a politically-charged speech that condemned President Trump’s immigrant ban.

“I am the daughter of an immigrant,” she said. “My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France and I am an American patriot. Because I love this country I am horrified by its blemishes. The immigrant ban is a blemish and un-American.”

3. And she wouldn’t be Julia Louis-Dreyfus if she didn’t fit in a Trump joke.

“Whether the Russians did or did not hack the voting at tonight’s SAG Awards, I look out on the million or million and half people in this room and I say this award is legitimate and I won,” Louis-Dreyfus said. “I’m the winner. The winner is me. Landslide.”
