Emmy Wish List: Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

at . Comments

Who should be nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series this year? Read on for our Emmys Wish List.

1. Taylor Schilling

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.

2. Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling
The Mindy Project kicked things up another humorous notch or 12 over the final few weeks of Season 2. And Kaling was obviously at the center of it.

3. Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler
Amy Poehler deserves more than a batch of waffles. She deserves recognition for anchoring what most consider the funniest show on television.

4. Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer
This is a slightly ambiguous category. Are we going for acting talent? Or the woman who makes us laugh the hardest? If it's the latter... come on down, Amy Schumer!

5. Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Julia Louis-Dreyfus
She's an obvious choice for a reason. Julia Louis-Dreyfus cursed her way toward The White House on Veep Season 3.

6. Wendi McLendon-Covey

Wendi McLendon-Covey
Call (Reno) 911 if Wendi McLendon-Covey doesn't get showered with some Emmy love. She plays the sweet, sort of crazy mother on The Goldbergs.

Wait! There's more! Just click "Next" below:



Emmy Rossum isn't on the list, it is therefore an incorrect list.

I was just about to leave the exact same comment Mitchell! Lol! And William H Macy was put on their lead actor list. I think Emmy Rossum deserves to win an emmy way more than Macy does. Fiona is such a complex character and Emmy plays her perfectly. She is honestly one of the most talented actresses on television and she deserves to be recognized at least with a nom (although she deserves a win too).
