2014 Emmys Wish List: Lead Actress in a Comedy

by at . Comments

Nominations for the 2014 Emmy Awards will be announced on July 10.

And while we can't know for sure who will received nods, we do know who will not receive any: those from The CW (although we've done our best to recognize their achievement via the first-ever CW Awards).

Over the next several days, TV Fanatic will be compiling a list of those we hope receive 2014 Emmy Award nominations, beginning with a sextet of talented stars in we'd love to see in the Lead Actress in a Comedy category.

From an inmate to a former councilwoman, these women earned our love and affection in 2013-2014:

Taylor Schilling
Netflix will enter Orange is the New Black in the Comedy series this year, meaning Taylor Schilling's layered portrayal of Piper Chapman - at times hilarious, intense and heart-wrenching - should receive serious consideration.
