Julia Louis-Dreyfus has bought an island - and needs some cash to pay for it.

Fortunately, she's got some Primetime Emmy Awards going spare and the boys at Barely Legal Pawn are ready to do a deal.

Featuring Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, the video's been viewed more than a million times since it was posted yesterday by the Academy of Television, Arts and Sciences, which will host the annual Emmy Awards on Tuesday (NZ time).

Louis-Dreyfus is nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for her work as Selina Meyer in Veep.


She already has four previous wins to her name, including two consecutive wins for Veep in 2012 and 2013.

The Emmy Awards will screen on Sky's Vibe Channel from midday. And we'll have all the red carpet action and live updates here on nzherald.co.nz
