Emmy season is upon us, and while that means we can celebrate all the good done by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences — Vanessa L. Williams, come on down! — it’s also another reminder that voters are all too often willing to overlook fresh new shows and faces in favor of rewarding the same-ole same-ole same-OLLLLLLDDDD. And that’s why, for the second straight year, EW.com is presenting the EWwy Awards, where we gather your rageful, Emmy-driven message-board comments from PopWatch, and turn them into a glamorous competition featuring the small screen’s most egregiously snubbed performers and programs. This year, we’ve teamed up with Hulu.com to provide video clips of selected EWwy nominees, so be sure to check out Hulu’s EWwys homepage, then head to our EWwy Comedy Gallery to vote in five comedy categories: Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Comedy Series. Nope, there isn’t a red-carpet ceremony hosted by Star Jones, but we do give you a chance to vote (until Sept. 10) for underappreciated favorites like Chuck, Pushing Daisies, Psych, Better Off Ted, and more.

Below are clips of performances from the six ladies up for the EWwy for Best Actress in a Comedy. (Last year’s winner, The Office‘s Jenna Fischer, wasn’t eligible, since you can’t win an EWwy two years in a row.) Ch-ch-check ’em out, then click here to vote for your favorite!

Portia de Rossi, Better Off Ted

Kaley Cuoco, The Big Bang Theory
