Emmy season is here! For the next two weeks, voters will be checking off names and shows they think are worthy of getting a nomination come July 10. We at TVGuide.com have a few selections in mind ourselves. Next up: our dream ballot for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
Emmys: TVGuide.com's picks for supporting actor in a comedy series
We love Abbi and Ilana equally, but Glazer was the undisputed MVP of the Comedy Central series' first season. The fictional Ilana's apathy and total disregard to everyone around her could've rendered her completely unlikable, but Glazer plays it with such fearless abandon that's contagious, refreshing and somehow endearing. The UCB alum already has a Critics' Choice nod under her belt.
To simply call Mindy Lahiri a hot mess would be an insult to everything Kaling does with the character. Kaling, who's been nominated as a producer and writer for The Office, has found the perfect alchemy of swagger, chaos and hopeless romantic to create a wholly genuine and relatable modern rom-com heroine. And anyone who has a wine bra gets our vote.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
Saying JLD deserves an Emmy for Veep is like pointing out that water is wet. The two-time defending champ is always excellent, but she brought her A++ game in Season 3 as everyone's favorite narcissistic veep cursed her way to the White House (with a little help from POTUS and FLOTUS). Plus: That hilarious bathroom scene with Tony Hale in "Crate" all but cements the deal.
