The show is in the running for five more gongs at the main ceremony, with Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon nominated for their turns as Trump and campaign rival Hillary Clinton.

Dreyfus already had the most victories in that category, also winning for her role in the show, "The New Adventures of Old Christine". She also revealed a tidbit about the upcoming final season.

"I had survived that thing that I was so afraid of", Waithe told The Times of her coming-out experience. She added that she is incredibly honored to receive the recognition and in awe that it happened again. "It's all very baffling and a sh*t ton of good luck".
