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

Aug 20 2013, 2:46pm CDT | by TV Line

It’s been 12 years since anyone has scored back-to-back Emmy wins for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series. (*If you’re scratching your head wondering who, exactly, holds that honor, kindly scroll to the end of this post!)

The question, of course, is whether Veep‘s Julia Louis-Dreyfus can break the no-repeat streak and score her second straight statuette. (She also won in 2006 for The New Adventures of Old Christine, but did not have the same luck in four subsequent attempts.)

Two other women this year are going for non-consecutive doubles in the Best Comedy Actress race: Nurse Jackie‘s Edie Falco (who won in 2010) and 30 Rock‘s Tina Fey (the 2008 champ).

Of course, if Emmy’s habit of spreading the wealth in the category continues, then perhaps one should think twice about putting money on Louis-Dreyfus, Falco and Fey. Instead, the safest bet is to look for a win from Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler (nominated for the fourth straight year), Girls‘ Lena Dunham (in the hunt for the second year running) or Enlightened‘s Laura Dern (celebrating her first and only nod for the brilliant-but-canceled HBO comedy).

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 Emmy polls, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!

*Patricia Heaton, a winner in 2000 and 2001 for Everybody Loves Raymond, was the last actress to take home consecutive Best Comedy Actress statuettes.

Even anti-dentites could appreciate the mini "Seinfeld" reunion that happened at the 2014 Emmys. For a moment, Bryan Cranston and Julia Louis-Dreyfus seemed to reprise their old "Seinfeld" roles of Tim Whatley and Elaine Benes as they shared a kiss that stole the whole night. The two also got together recently for an Emmys sketch that had Cranston opening up a pawn shop with Aaron Paul, but there are many other reunions from the show about nothing that really are som ...
