Emmys 2013: Who Should Win Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy? Take Our Poll!

Aug 17 2013, 11:06am CDT | by TV Line

The six ladies nominated for the 2013 Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy all have an interesting thing in common: Each of ‘em has been up for a statuette in prior years.

Only two of these women, however — Melissa McCarthy (as guest host of Saturday Night Live) and Glee‘s Dot-Marie Jones — were part of the Guest Actress race in 2012, both losing out to Kathy Bates (for Two and a Half Men). Jones, incidentally, was also nominated in the Guest Actress race in 2011, giving her a hat trick of nods.

One other veteran of the category, Elaine Stritch, took home the Guest Actress in a Comedy statuette in 2007 for 30 Rock, but was relegated to bridesmaid staus in three subsequent nominations. With 30 Rock‘s seven-season run in the books, this will be Stritch’s last shot for playing the irascible Colleen Donaghy (though she has two prior Emmy wins — Guest Actress in a Drama in 1993 and Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program in 2004).

While McCarthy is back in the mix for the second straight year for her SNL stint, two other actresses in the race also have connections to the NBC sketch-comedy show. Former cast regulars Molly Shannon and Kristen Wiig are both 2013 Guest Actress nominees: Shannon for her role on HBO’s Enlightened, Wiig for her first time out as an SNL host.

And finally, Melissa Leo — who’s landed both Primetime Emmy and Daytime Emmy nods in prior years — rounds out the field for her work on FX’s Louie.

What would you do if you had the power to honor one of these fine actresses when the Emmys are handed out? Take our poll below to vote for your favorite — TVLine voting closes Sept. 15, so act now! — then hit the comments to justify your pick!

Every day for the next month, we’ll launch another “Who Should Win?” Emmy poll, so come back to TVLine.com every day to weigh in on who’s most worthy of TV’s biggest honor. And to stay up to speed on all our races, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
