Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus won the SAG award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series on Sunday.

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.

“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.”
