The supporting actress comedy pool was just as competitive as its dude counterpart for this year’s EWwy Awards. So many funny female characters help set the tones of their whole show, whether unassumingly (Aubrey Plaza in Parks and Rec) or obviously (Busy Philipps in Cougar Town). By the power vested in us by Annie’s Boobs (ewwww — that’s weird for me to write), we reluctantly narrowed the field to six. Watch them below, then flip through all of this year’s EWwy nominees in our photo gallery.
Busy Philipps, Cougar Town
She gets into things! Just like Jules, WE LOVE HER.
Kaitlin Olson, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Sweet Dee is just as selfish and wrong as the wild and crazy guys — even, or especially when — she’s pregnant.
Aubrey Plaza, Parks and Recreation
A single side-eye from people-hater April Ludgate can make a scene infinitely better.
Heather Morris, Glee
We haven’t seen a character this blissfully oblivious since…well, Laurie Keller.
(Is there a EWwy for dancing? Maybe Heather should just win that.)
Eden Sher, The Middle
She’s kind of like Blossom, but with less hats and much more wild-abandon awkwardness.
Alison Brie, Community
Who else could transition so seamlessly from Hector the Well-Endowed to cold-blooded killer?
(Honorable mention: Annie’s Boobs.)
