    I must admit that I only watched Weeds among those series. I checked Samantha Who shortly but didn’t like it ( even as a Jennifer Esposito Fan ).
    But after I’ve seen Tina Fey as Sarah Palin I’ll have to give 30 Rock a chance … and Tina my vote anyways.

    My vote’s for Parker!

  • Josh C.

    sorry gotta toss my vote in for christina applegate. she was charming and hilarious as samantha newly. if not here then yes absolute tina fey. as for next year…….early prediction is mary louise parker. this season of weeds was so good

  • tim wilkins

    I’m hoping for Parker in Weeds. She rocks!

  • Josh Emerson

    This has got to be the best category of nominees this year. Every woman there is great!

    Should Win: Tina Fey. I just don’t think anything compares to 30 Rock and Tina. She’s hilarious.

    Will Win: Fey or Christina Applegate. I can definitely see her taking it.

    Snubbed: None. Great list of nominees.

  • Linda B.

    I think MLP or Tina Fey should win.

    I’ve never seen Samantha Who, and not to discredit her performance in it (which i’m sure is good), but Christina Applegate may get the sympathy vote.

  • Ashley

    Sometimes I think I’m the only person on the planet who doesn’t love Mary-Louise Parker. I find her extremely boring and her voice monotonous.

    I’ll agree with the TV Addict and give the award to the hilarious Julia Louis-Dreyfus. I love Tina Fey, too. But I think Louis-Dreyfus should get this one (and 30 Rock should be named Outstanding Comedy).

    I can see Applegate getting the award; at least she is a pretty funny actor. I’m just not sure if her illness was public knowledge when the ballots were submitted. I remember Michael J. Fox winning an award relatively soon after announcing he had Parkinson’s disease. He mentioned in his speech that he wasn’t surprised to win (because of the sympathy vote), but that he was grateful nevertheless.

    My SNUBBED vote goes to Anna Friel of Pushing Daisies. She should get Parker’s nomination.

    Christina Applegate was the best comedic actress of the year (sorry, Tina Fey!…), so she will win. Plus, after getting rid of the cancer (thank God!), voters might want to reward her…
