No Emmy reruns for TV’s funniest ladies [Photo Gallery]

The Comedy Actress race at the Primetime Emmys used to be won by the same leading lady more than one time. Mary Tyler Moore took home four Emmys in the 1970s for her self-titled show while “All in the Family” star Jean Stapleton won three. More recently, Candice Bergen collected five trophies for “Murphy Brown” beginning in 1989 and Helen Hunt (“Mad About You”) then won four.

However, after Patricia Heaton picked up two in a row for “Everybody Loves Raymond” in 2000 and 2001, there has been a different winner each year. The first of these was Jennifer Aniston (“Friends,” 2002) while the most recent was Edie Falco (“Nurse Jackie”). To see all the single ladies in between, check out our new gallery. VIEW GALLERY

This year, most pundits are predicting a win by Laura Linney (“The Big C”) who has gone undefeated in her three previous Emmy bids [Best Movie/Mini Actress, “Wild Iris” (2002), “John Adams” (2008), Guest Comedy Actress, “Frasier” (2006)].
