breaking! Kobe Bryant Dead at 41: Athletes & Hollywood Pay Tribute

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a comedic genius!

Over the years the Emmy-winner has made us laugh, cry and shout with excitement as her many iconic characters. Now, she's being honored with the annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and it's so well deserved.

She's wooed fans as Elaine Benes on Seinfeld, guided us through divorce on The New Adventures of Old Christine and gave us the female vice president we've always wanted on Veep. She is a true comedy chameleon and that's why she's this year's Mark Twain Prize recipient.

The New York City native has done it all when it comes to comedy and we're forever grateful for all of her amazing characters. Take a trip down funny lane with us below to see all of Louis-Dreyfus' greatest (and funniest) roles of all time. Make sure to vote for which of the roles makes you laugh the hardest after all these years in our poll, too!
