Louis-Dreyfus explained that she felt particularly close to the situation because she graduated from an all-girls school prep school in the Washington, D.C. area, the same one attended by Kavanaugh's accuser Christine Blasey Ford, who alleged he sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers. Fey referenced her famous role playing the 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, on Saturday Night Live, saying she and Louis-Dreyfus "both won Emmys for playing people who should never be vice-president".
Louis-Dreyfus gained fame as Elaine - the perpetually single neurotic in Jerry Seinfeld's ensemble sitcom - but her role as a blundering politician on the HBO show Veep has brought more acclaim.
Said Fey: "Julia let Elaine be selfish and petty and sarcastic and a bad, awful dancer". "Julia was letting us know that she was the real deal, comedy-wise, and she didn't need to give us midriff for (us) to watch her work because, here's the secret, Julia's not afraid to be unlikable - not onscreen and not in person".
During last year's ceremony to honor David Letterman, Cosby's name was never mentioned. Late night host Stephen Colbert displayed a sign proclaiming, "167 days since the last Un-Twaining".
"This, by the way, is totally true and not some kind of subtle attack on our newest Supreme Court Justice - for God's sake the man has suffered enough", Louis-Dreyfus said, before concluding: "I don't think it's that amusing anymore, to tell you the truth".
Those scheduled to speak at the ceremony include Jerry Seinfeld, Stephen Colbert and previous Mark Twain recipient Tina Fey.
Louis-Dreyfus was called to the small screen after a Saturday Night Live producer spotted her at a Chicago improvisational revue in 1982.
Seinfeld says: "We had just two short pages of script, and we sat down to read the dialogue together".
That confidence was evident very early for Louis-Dreyfus, who said she knew as a young child that she had a gift for comedy. "I believed that before and now I really know it".
"When I was getting my disgusting chemotherapy, I'd cram a bunch of family and friends into this tiny treatment room with me, and we really did have some great laughs".
Louis-Dreyfus is a graduate of the elite Holton-Arms school, alma mater of Dr Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, which Kavanaugh vehemently denied.
Louis-Dreyfus make a veiled but unmistakable reference to Ford's testimony, as she recalled a high school performance of the play "Serendipity".
"I just remember we could be a total mess - we were a total mess a lot of the times", he continues.
Louis-Dreyfus emerged from Chicago's famed Second City comedy troupe before joining the cast of "Saturday Night Live".
Louis-Dreyfus has earned the most professional renown with Veep but the actress became a national celebrity two decades earlier as Elaine on Seinfeld - a show that was a cultural touchstone during a nine-year run that ended in 1998.
The 21-year-old Kasatkina had to battle back from a set down to win 2-6, 7-6 (7/3), 6-4 in two hours two minutes. She plays a very interesting tennis, her game style is very messy, many slices, drop shots, net approaches.
Guo went on to suggest that Wang Zhimin (王志民), China's top liaison officer to Hong Kong might also be in danger. Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said in a statement that she was "grieved to learn of his sudden departure".
That leaves Marvel in a bit of an odd place right now, and I guess the coming months will show this all plays out. Marvel and Netflix confirmed to Deadline on Friday that the show "will not return for a third season".
Carruth has served 18 years in the Sampson County Correction Facility for plotting to kill Cherica Adams, the mother of his child. After Adams died, Carruth, who had been free on $3 million bond, went into hiding, failing to turn himself in.
"Everything just switched off and it seemed pretty much identical to the issue I had in Bahrain at the beginning of the year". Max Verstappen carved his way from 18 on the grid to finish second, while Lewis Hamilton finished third.
