List Rules Vote up the star you think will win Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the 2019 Emmy Awards.

The 2019 Emmy nominations are in, so now it’s time to make your predictions. Whether you're in an Emmy pool or just like to compete against yourself for the most accurate Emmys 2019 predictions, you've come to the right place.

Below, you'll find the nominees for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for the 71st Primetime Emmys, ranked by who is most likely to walk away with the coveted award.

The competition is tight for the best actress Emmy. Julia Louis-Dreyfus could be a safe bet for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, seeing as she has won this exact prize six times already for her role as Selina Meyer on HBO’s Veep

However, don’t finalize your Emmy Awards predictions just yet. Rachel Brosnahan took the trophy home last year for her hilarious portrayal of Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Catherine O’Hara also has previous Emmy wins under her belt, and this is the first year the awards show seems to be shining a light on indie darling Schitt’s Creek.

Natasha Lyonne has also received rave reviews for her work as Nadia Vulvokov on Russian Doll, and Christina Applegate shined as recent widow Jen Harding on Dead to Me

Another beloved indie appears on the list in the form of Phoebe Waller-Bridge and her nomination for Fleabag. Tough competition like this certainly doesn’t make Emmy predictions 2019 easy.

Who will leave with an Emmy for lead actress on Sunday, September 22? Show off your Emmy winner predictions 2019 and vote up the actress you think is most deserving of the trophy.
