There are sooo many contenders here…and I know we have yet to see Kemper.
My frontrunners would be Tracce Ellis Ross, Gina Rodriguez and Emmy Rossum.
Who should win?May 17, 2017 at 1:36 am #1202095159
Rossum is a fraud. She should be winning but drama actress. As for the question these five ladies should be fighting over that shiny trophy:

I’d probably go with Rodriguez. Tough call though.May 17, 2017 at 2:09 am #1202095177
My top 5 picks are:
–Tracee Ellis Ross, Blackish
—–Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, VEEP
—Minnie Driver, Speechless
—–Ellie Kemper, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
—Lily Tomlin, Grace & FrankieMay 17, 2017 at 3:20 am #1202095186
Kristen Bell. From minute one to the end of episode 13, The Good Place succeeded or failed on her alone. And she succeeded.May 17, 2017 at 4:02 am #1202095188
Phoebe Waller-BridgeMay 17, 2017 at 4:52 am #1202095227
Any of these would be amazing winners.
Tracee Eliss Ross
Gina RodriguezMay 17, 2017 at 5:02 am #1202095229
Nice try. Julia Louis Dreyfus could and should still win for “an entire season’s work”. And should/could have done it every single year too.
Love Rodriguez, Ross, Rae, Dunham, Kemper and others like Poehler, Plimpton in the past, but they still can’t beat Dreyfus. Maybe Poehler would have.
The only reason Dreyfus shouldn’t win is because she’s won so much and it’s tiresome, in which case I’d go with Kemper, even without watching this season.May 17, 2017 at 6:50 am #1202095304
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Dreyfus is not a name check or has some unfair advantage each and every Emmy she has won she has earned. I honestly can’t think of a episode that she isn’t a 110% amazing in. Even right now with all the contenders she shows a depth and range of emotion that’s really unparalleled. That being said if anyone was to topple her from her throne I think it’s going to be Debra Messing</p>May 17, 2017 at 7:38 am #1202095355
Phoebe Waller Bridge, and it’s not even close.May 17, 2017 at 8:57 am #1202095439
Phoebe Waller-BridgeMay 17, 2017 at 3:14 pm #1202095661
I love Phoebe Waller-Bridge but there are least 4 or 5 others who are better actresses than her.
