'Nurse Jackie's' Wever Wins Best Supporting Comedy Actress Emmy

The cable industry jumped out to a quick start during the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards as Nurse Jackie's Merritt Wever and Veep's Tony Hale won snared Emmys for best supporting comedy actress and actor respectively.

The award was the first for Wever, who plays Zoey Barkow, a student nurse in Showtime’s veteran comedy series, and marks the third Emmy-win for the series. Hale, who plays the personal assistent to the vice president -- played by Julie Louis-Dreyfus, who also won an Emmy for best comedy actress -- also nabbed his first statuette and the  third for the HBO series.
