Who Should Win the Emmy For Best Actress in a Comedy Series?

Who Should Win the Emmy For Best Actress, Comedy?

We've been asking for your input on each category of actors in this year's Emmy race, and now it's time to put some of TV's funniest ladies in the hot seat. Edie Falco is the reigning champ for her role on Nurse Jackie, but do you think one of her competitors is more deserving?

Joining Falco in the category are Tina Fey for 30 Rock and Amy Poehler for Parks and Recreation. Fey has one win under her belt while Poehler been nominated before but never taken home a statuette for this category. They're also joined by three newcomers in Raising Hope's Martha Plimpton, Mike & Molly's Melissa McCarthy, and Laura Linney of The Big C.

Now that you've been primed on the contenders, tell us in comments who is most deserving and why!
