How to win an Emmy Award

9781783191031Last weekend saw the 67th Emmy Awards take place in LA, and it was a proud night for our very own David Quantick who, along with his colleagues Armando Iannucci and Simon Blackwell, bagged not one but two Emmys – namely Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. The HBO show in question, VEEP, was awarded a whopping five Emmys overall, including Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

David’s excitement was clear, as he tweeted pictures and gags throughout the ceremony on his personal twitter account @Quantick.
