The Zap2It Emmy poll series continues. You’ve been weighing in on the lead categories in drama and the lead actor in a comedy category. Now it’s time to choose the winner in the most wide-open category: outstanding lead actress in a comedy. It’s so wide-open that there are seven nominees to choose from.
As discussed earlier in the week, this one is jam-packed with Emmy favorites. Julia Louis-Dreyfus of “Veep”, Melissa McCarthy of “Mike & Molly,” Tina Fey of “30 Rock” and Edie Falco of “Nurse Jackie” are all previous winners in this category, and all had strong seasons.
But the other three women on this list aren’t chicken feed. Amy Poehler should have won an Emmy by now, and she did a fine job navigating the “Knope 2012” storyline in “Parks and Recreation.” Zooey Deschanel of “New Girl” proved she could carry a sitcom on her own quirky terms. And no one’s hotter these days than Lena Dunham. In fact, despite the academy’s squeamishness with giving big awards to newcomers, “Girls” is so hot that Dunham has a good shot of taking the award home despite the fierce competition.
Who do you think will bring home the Emmy? Vote in the poll below. The 64th annual Primetime Emmys, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, air live at 8 p.m. ET Sept. 23 on ABC.
