Emmy Nominations Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series 2012

Who Deserves the Emmy For Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy?

It's been a big year for funny females, so we're especially anxious to find out who will win the Emmy for best lead actress in a comedy. The category has more nominees than any other (seven!), and the competition has never been more fierce. Last year, Bridesmaids scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy won for Mike & Molly against Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Edie Falco — and all four women will be vying for the award this year, too. New to the nominee pool are New Girl's Zooey Deschanel, Veep's Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Lena Dunham, the girl behind the Girls phenomenon. Take a moment to vote for your favorite comedic female and don't forget to fill out our full Emmy ballot for a chance to win $2,000!
