Emmy Nominees: Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 5/6, picking Zooey Deschanel over Dern

I was really excited when I heard Laura Dern (Enlightened) announced as the first nominee. It’s a small way to commemorate her great show, but it’s something! It’s too bad that it was at the expense of Zooey Deschanel and “New Girl,” which found itself completely shut out this year, which is bizarre and unfortunate. The rest of the list was expected, knocking out Melissa McCarthy to keep in Lena Dunham (Girls), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Tina Fey (30 Rock), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), and Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation). Still a good list!

Who should win? Poehler, Dern, or Louis-Dreyus
Who will win? Probably Louis-Dreyfus again.
