The actress announced her devastating cancer news on social media in September in a statement posted on her Instagram account, which she simply captioned: "Just when you thought." It read: "1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today I'm the one. The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends. The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality."

In January, Julia set a new awards record from her sitting room, when she won two more Screen Actors Guild recognitions for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series, and outstanding performance by a female actor in a comedy series.

The talented actress – who now has a grand total of nine SAG awards – took to Twitter to express her disappointment at being unable to attend, adding that she was "honoured" to win.

"I wish I could have been @SAGawards tonight but have to admit it's pretty fun to watch in my pj's. So honored to win. So proud to be a union member. So happy for my @VeepHBO bozos for winning ensemble award. Miss being at the table with you all. How was the chicken?"
