Emmys 2011: Who Deserves the Award for Guest Actress in a Comedy?

Class-president campaign posters might be replaced by banners for the 2011 Emmy race for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy in the halls of the fictional William McKinley High School in Lima, OH. Yes indeed, a full 50 percent of nominees in the latter race (Kristin Chenoweth, Dot-Marie Jones, and Gwyneth Paltrow) hail from Fox’s Glee; those ladies will face 30 Rock guest star Elizabeth Banks, SNL guest host (and, coincidentally, 30 Rock creator) Tina Fey, and Raising Hope‘s Cloris Leachman in the race for TV’s reigning secret weapon (female division).

What would you do if you had the power to send one of these actresses to the podium when the Emmys are handed out Sept.18? Take our poll below to vote for your favorite — TVLine voting closes Sept. 10, so act now! — then hit the comments to justify your pick!

Every day for the next month, we’ll launch another “Who Should Win” Emmy poll, so come back to TVLine.com every day to weigh in on who’s most worthy of TV’s biggest honor, and to stay up to speed on all our races, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
