The Votes Are In: Best Comedic Movie Actress and Actor of 2008

In my Best of 2008 polls for Comedic Actress and Comedic Actor you told me who had you in stitches this year (and a little bit about who did not). The votes are in and we have some winners! This year's best funny movie people are. . .

Best Comedic Movie Actress of 2008
Tina Fey, Baby Mama

It has been an excellent year for my comedic heroine, Tina Fey. She and Amy Poehler (who came in second place in the poll) made a very funny movie, and Fey's TV comedy 30 Rock swept the Emmys. I love this era of Fey goodness, and I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us in 2009. Yay Fey!

After Poehler came Elizabeth Banks in third place. Write-ins include Kristen Wiig and Kristen Bell, among others.

Want to see which comedic actor was voted best of 2008? Just


Best Comedic Movie Actor of 2008
Robert Downey Jr., Tropic Thunder, Iron Man

Robert Downey Jr. is the clear winner of this poll. Like Fey, RDJ had quite the year, what with the success of Iron Man and his hilarious performance in Tropic Thunder.

Sidenote: I think I'd die of happiness if Fey and RDJ starred together in a comedy.

At the time of posting this, Steve Carell is in second place just barely edging out Paul Rudd.
