I don't watch much TV these days but Kristin Kreuk was always nice to look at in Smallville although it's not comedy. Same for Evangeline Lilly in Lost. As far as comedy, I'm completely stumped lol

I LOVE Jane Krakowski.
Next to her and currently on the air I also really like Jane Lynch, Kristen Wiig and Vanessa Williams who I fear will go Emmy-less for her astounding work on "Ugly Betty".

Simbi Khali was the secretary on 3rd Rock, right?

Luke said...

Yeah, she was Albright's assistant. A droll delight! :)

Kristin Chenoweth comes to mind immediately for the unfortunately cancelled Pushing Daisies. I am loving the inclusions of many especially Jane K and Lisa K. I agree with Jose on Vanessa. Such a pity she's gone award-less for so long.

Ah yes... Vanessa is a force on that show. I opted for Becki Newton instead since Vanessa is hardly "sidekick" material... She's bigger than life. And definitely going to have to agree on the snubbage. A waste of a great character performance!

Estelle Getty rocks my socks. She's freaking hilarious.
