Emmys 2012: Who should win outstanding lead actress in a comedy series? Vote now!Add to Favorites | Veep
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.
