Wait just a second: The 2015 race for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series without Veep‘s Julia Louis-Dreyfus? Rated B… for Blasphemy!
And yet that’s exactly what Team TVLine is proposing in our latest Dream Nominees Gallery.
Look, it’s not that JLD’s work as Selina Meyer has been any less hilarious in Season 4, but she’s also taken home the statuette for the last three years. And in a category so competitive that we also had to snub black-ish‘s effervescent Tracee Ellis-Ross, Broad City‘s bad-ass Ilana Glazer, the endlessly amusing Mindy Kaling, The Goldbergs‘ formidable Wendi McLendon-Covey and Parks and Recreation‘s always-a-bridesmaid Amy Poehler, we didn’t feel too too guilty about making the Veep star sit out a year.
So who did survive the brutal cut for our Dream Nominations — a feature we’ll revisit once a day between now and the official start of Emmys’ nomination-voting kickoff on June 15?
Check out the gallery below — or click here for direct access — to peruse our sextet of choices, then tell us which of our dream nominees have you saying “Woot!”, which have you throwing side-eye, and whether or not we snubbed any of your faves.
