I'm a fan of Jean Smart however if she wont get nom its ok but I like Holland Taylor or Vanessa Williams to be win. As for Jennifer Esposito not included in the semi final list. well she was that funny at all.

Go Cheno! I'll be crossing my fingers that she gets a nom!

Amy v. Jenna, in the steel cage, will give us the winner in this one.

hey. whoever said kristin chenoweth wasn't good, they can shove that up their ass. I am a sophmore student at Juilliard this year for voice, and i have met kristin, and not only is she talented, she is a nice person. i want to be just like her when i graduate. oh, and broadway is much better than you think, if you think at all. all that song and dance is probably too advanced for your tiny brain to understand. so crawl back under your rock, and leave kristin the hell alone.

ok Kristin Chenoweth IS a TRUE actress Lee! If she can do Broadway she can certainly do TV and she is amazing and sooo well deserving!! She's the best thing on Pushing Daisies!!

Kristin and Jane Krakowski FTW!

They should cancel the Emmy's if Dana Delaney isn't nominated. This is unnacceptable. The Emm's are officially a joke. Her work on DH was far superior to all of her co-stars and her storyline and brilliant acting, are the only thing that had me hooked all season long.

Kristin Chenoweth should take her difficult to watch CUTE shtick back to Broadway where cheese can pass as acting! Please! More deserving TRUE actresses on the show!

I'm actually very upset about this category this year. I was really hoping that Wanda Sykes and Cheryl Hines would at least be in the semi-finalist category. Oh well... I guess my vote goes to Holland Taylor. I HATE Two and a Half Men, but I really do like Taylor. She's a great actress, and makes that show a bit less terrible.

Yay for Kristin Chenoweth!


Kristin Chenoweth, yay! Go Pushing Daisies!

It's all about Jenna Fischer, is now and always will be. She's amazing.

no jennifer esposito from samantha who?!! awwww. she was stellar in every episode.
