Best of 2012: Who Would You Nominate in the Comedy/Drama "Best Actress" Categories?

By Staff

Nov 21, 2012

FIRST THINGS FIRST: This story is all about the ladies. To throw your picks for "Best Actor" into the ring, you'll want to check out this story right here.

You probably know the drill by now, yeah? We're currently assembling the ballot for our end-of-the-year "Best of 2012" awards, and we want to know who YOU would like to see nominated in the major categories. So far we've asked for your input on the "Best New Series," "Best Overall Series," and "Best Actor" contests, and now it's time to battle over who deserves a nomination for "Best Actress."

We've combined the comedy and drama categories into a single post, so make sure your voice clicks are heard in BOTH of the polls below. We'll take the top vote-getters from readers and throw in some editorial picks to create the final ballot, which will be out in early December.

The only requirements are that the actress appeared on a program that aired in 2012, she acted well, and that she is a she. (Click here to weigh in on the "Best Actor" categories.) Feel free to add your own nominations using the write-in feature, and please make sure you nominate actresses in the correct poll (dramatic actresses in drama, comedic actresses in comedy). Now get clicking!

UPDATE: These polls are closed! Check back in early December to vote on the final list of nominees!

    Sara Ramírez is the best

    I am extremely surprised that the almost all the Grey's girls got into top 10, but I am also very happy to see that as I am a huge GA fan :D. Anyhoo, that said, this vote is really not about who are the 'best' or 'most talented' actresses but the most beloved and favourite actresses and it goes to show that all the Grey's girls are extremely popular :)

    Lauren Cohan should have been on this list, her performance on TWD is great, and she did a good job performing on Chuck and TVD too.

    Elizabeth Mitchell!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @tnetennba : hum, Jessica Capshaw and Sara Ramirez are 2 actresses in Grey's Anatomy, quick research and you know that and seriously, they both amazing. It's not a fan girling, that just the truth.

  • wallachtwins Nov 27, 2012

    I agree with you...Jessica Capshaw & Sara Ramirez are both very good actresses..Especially with the storyline they have this year on Greys Anatomy...

  • tnetennba Nov 26, 2012

    Yeah, I just looked up the four I've never heard of. Apparently they're *all* on Grey's Anatomy. Since I can't even imagine myself watching a hospital soap, I guess I'll never find out if they're good.

    Thanks for pointing out that I could have found out who they are with some quick research. I would never have figured that out. /sarcasm

  • DoeJ Nov 26, 2012

    Yeah, i'm not Sheldon, i unsterdan sarcasm.
    But, you're welcome ! :D

    Jessica Capshaw is really great this season. Sara Ramirez is great since 2-3 seasons, i think.
    But i'm ok with you, Jennifer Carpenter is better than lot of girls.
    For me Jen > Ellen Pompeo, Ginni Goodwin, Emily Vancamp, Emilia Clarke, Jen morison and Anna Torv (who i love by the way).

    PS : sorrry for my english, i'm french.

    certainly there will be around, the good actresses ... but it seems to me that here you can vote, whoever you want .. and then I vote who I want!

    There are other shows than Grey's Anatomy. Much much better shows with much better actresses.

  • DoeJ Nov 26, 2012

    How you can judge if you don't watch the show ?
    By the way, for me Jennifer Carpenter is a lot better that Anna Torv even if i love Anna Torv. You can't judge with your "better actresses" because no one is right or wrong.

  • bellaherna Nov 25, 2012

    Since not recording/saving my votes below are my choices:
    1.) ANNA TORV-Fringe
    2.) Claire Danes-Homeland

  • bicelis Nov 26, 2012

    1) you're right
    2) you're right again

  • bellaherna Nov 25, 2012

    Why are my votes not recording? How do you actually submit your vote? I am clicking on my selection but there is no submit button and once I refresh page my vote is removed and vote tally is back where it was before I voted?
