Julia
Louis-Dreyfus

Actor

There are few better ways to stage a cancer comeback than to land yet another in a history of Emmy nominations, as Louis-Dreyfus did this year. The showbiz vet is tied with Cloris Leachman with eight individual Emmys (plus three for executive producing her HBO hit “Veep,” which wrapped this year). What a joyous way to rebound following a 2017 breast cancer diagnosis — the following year, after receiving treatment and posting regular updates on her battle via social media, she revealed she was cancer free. And the winning (in all senses of the word), cheerful Louis-Dreyfus is far from done: In 2020, she’ll star in the “Force Majeure” remake, “Downhill,” and lend a key voice to the Disney/Pixar original film “Onward.”
