Ugly Betty

ABC/John Clifford

All week, E! Online's TV Diva, Kristin Veitch, has been calling faves and predicting Emmy winners. You think that's funny? Well this one is, the outstanding lead actress in a comedy:

The Incumbent:  Julia Louis-Dreyfus, The New Adventures of Old Christine

The Contenders

  • America Ferrera, Ugly Betty
  • Tina Fey, 30 Rock
  • Felicity Huffman, Desperate Housewives
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus, The New Adventures of Old Christine
  • Mary-Louise Parker, Weeds

Who Should Win:  America Ferrera, Ugly Betty

Who Will Win:  America Ferrera, Ugly Betty

It's America's world, we just live in it. That's not a political statement, that's the fact of the matter when it comes to Ferrera's burgeoning TV superstardom. As Ugly Betty's title character, she makes awkward look good.

Tina is gorgeous and gaining confidence as an actress every day on 30 Rock, Julia and Mary-Louise are consummate comedy professionals and Felicity never fails to make you laugh through Lynette Scavo's tears.

But it is America's work this season that makes her the category's clear winner.
