Dreyfus is amazing in Veep, which seems to be one of those shows tailor-made for an actress of her caliber, and one that seems to be where she can win multiple Emmys for this role. I felt that way about Candice Bergen, too, for Murphy Brown, who won five Emmys for her role. I am just glad Dreyfus was able to find a role worthy of her talents after Seinfeld. Dreyfus has so many episodes to choose from where she will more than likely win this year. Can anyone even top her? I feel somewhat similarly about Jim Parsons, too.June 20, 2014 at 7:57 am #320151
It is definitely perfect for her. She is practically unstoppable and rightfully so. The only contest is, as always, Amy Poehler. Her overdue status could finally get her an Emmy.June 20, 2014 at 8:08 am #320152
Julia is an Emmy juggernaut with this role and show. She will easily win again this year.June 20, 2014 at 8:16 am #320153
There is no competition this year: Julia Louis Dreyfus has
that 3rd consecutive Emmy in the bag. She is literally sprinting towards the win.
She is unstoppable, a beast!
She will join Helen Hunt
as the only actresses to win 3 or more consecutive Oustanding Actress in a Comedy Series Emmy’s.
4 consecutive wins for Mad
About You. Surprisingly, 9 women stopped at 2 consecutive wins, and couldn’t hit that 3rd one. Candice Bergen and Mary Tyler Moore had two consecutive wins twice.
Jim Parsons? I would be
ecstatic if it does happen. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it when Parsons
wins awards for a character that the minority despise, and the majority love. Say
what you want, but Sheldon Cooper is one of Television’s most original and
“near” iconic Comedy characters.
People love him. Awards bodies love him. A 4th win will put him with Carroll O’Connor , Michael J. Fox and Kelsey Grammer for most wins in this category. And that is a feat!

Jim Parsons and JLD are locks this year, no question. Andy Samberg and Amy Poehler will be lucky to be in second place, but neither have the comedic force or scale of the other two performances. Just the way it goes, but I think everyone will be unanimously happy to see JLD get a 3rd consecutive Emmy for Selina Meyer.June 20, 2014 at 9:27 am #320155
It is definitely perfect for her. She is practically unstoppable and rightfully so. The only contest is, as always, Amy Poehler. Her overdue status could finally get her an Emmy.
“Overdue status”? Would Steve Carell, Michael C. Hall, and Hugh Laurie agree with that? Don’t count on thatJune 20, 2014 at 9:45 am #320156
Not a chance in hell Poehler is winning an Emmy for P&R now I’m afraid. Impossible.June 20, 2014 at 11:16 am #320157
The race is far from over. JLD could botch her submission and then anything is possible.
I watched only a few episodes of Mom, but considering the nature of the show, I won’t be surprised if Anna Faris comes up with a wild, loud submission. But she’s less likely to get nominated now that Mindy has emerged as her bigger threat for a nomination.
Comedy Lead Actor is usually a dull race. Jim Parsons will have no trouble standing out once again.June 20, 2014 at 12:19 pm #320158
I love JLD and Veep and she deservesto win for a third year, and Veep deserves to win Best Comedy Series!June 20, 2014 at 3:02 pm #320159
JLD won’t botch her submission, she said in her twitter that “Crate”, the 9th episode of the season, had her favorite moments of the show (the bathroom scene, specifically). She’s known for submitting the episode she thinks it’s the most challenging and fun to play, so she’ll most likely submit it. And whomever saw that episode would agree that it is the most competitive tape of the race this year.June 20, 2014 at 6:22 pm #320160
I’m tired of JLD winning. I hope they give it to someone else this year.June 20, 2014 at 6:25 pm #320161
She’s the best comedic actor on TV right now IMO, she deserves to win again.June 20, 2014 at 8:07 pm #320162
I posted this in the Veep thread: JLD deserved a boatload of Emmys for Seinfeld (not only one…she was incredible on that show), and it seems like she’s finally getting her due with Veep, the perfect confluence of role, actor, subject matter, importance, and cast for awards. She is truly a once in a generation comedic talent. One big hope is that this cast, led by Dreyfus, wins the SAG ensemble award. It’s just a great example of how a comedy cast should be, playing off each other, huge improv responsibilities, playing to the fences. I still don’t know about that haircut though….that would not have been the right move. She’s going to become the first sitting president to lose the primary and then out of respect will be asked to be the Veep (again).
