    Julia Louis-Dreyfus became the most-decorated actor in the history of the SAG awards on Sunday - days before completing chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer.

    The Seinfeld and Veep actress was diagnosed with cancer in September and has since become a public advocate for affordable insurance and healthcare in America. Her first public outing since finishing treatment was on Thursday.

    Ms Louis-Dreyfus was unable to attend the awards ceremony in Los Angeles, but won two awards - pushing her career total to nine SAG awards, and the highest number of awards for one actor since they began in 1995.

    Her cast-mates from the HBO series Veep, where she plays Vice-President Selina Meyer, collected the awards in her absence: one statue as a member of the cast of Veep, which won "best comedy series ensemble", and one for "best performance by a female actor in a comedy series".

    Production on the final season of Veep is on hold until its star returns.
