It's a tough decision between Ellen Pompeo and Anna Torv, both are excellent actresses. Although I ended up voting for Anna Torv, since I feel Ellen has gotten her share of the spotlight from many seasons on Grey's - Anna deserves some too.

Most of these actresses are OK, but the only one I would call Emmy-worthy is Anna Torv. It's also odd that you would put Piper Perabo on the list, but leave out Lana Parilla and Kerry Washington.

Leighton Meester deserves attention but would she be considered a supporting actress since Blake Lively recieves top bill either way out of these id have to go with Revenge's Ms Vancamp she's talented and on the best new show soap since gossip girl i bet smg hates her since revenge is what she prbly thought ringer was going to be

Where is Lana Parrilla or Michelle Dockery?
Really Kate Walsh???? Katerina Scorsone would have been a much more worthy choice for her storyline alone this past year, since KaDee Strickland was overlooked last year for her rape storyline.

Ellen Pompeo ftw!

No one on here is BAD, but Stana Katic & Kerry Washington should be in this top six. Also assuming it's based on this season - and I'd go for all Broadcast shows - just to level the playing field. So, in no particular order: Anna Torv
Ellen Pompeo
Kerry Washington
Stana Katic
Kathy Bates
Lana Parrilla

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
