Some of these have already been mentioned, but I want to put my support behind them as well:
Lindsay Bluth FÃ¼nke, Arrested Development
April Ludgate, Parks and Recreation
Ann Perkins, Parks and Recreation
Britta Perry, Community
Shirley Bennett, Community
Dr.Â Amy Farrah Fowler,Â The Big Bang Theory
Jane Lane, Daria
Rhoda, who gets the odd position of being both a lead (in her own series) and supporting actress (in Maude).
Florence, The Jeffersons
Gloria, All In the Family
Hot Lips Houlihan, MASH (She got nominated in the lead category too, but she might be classified as ‘supporting.)
Mrs. Garette, Facts of Life and Different Strokes
Dee What’s Happening
Foxxy Love, Drawn Together
April, Parks and Rec
Karen, Will and Grace
Ms Piggy, The Muppet Show
Veronica, Better Off Ted
Cameron, Sarah Conner Chronicles
Aunt Vivian from The Fresh Prince.
Willow from Buffy.
Ethel from I Love Lucy (I nominated her in the original post, but it’s not listed above).
Ellen from Pete & Pete.
I’d consider Buffy a drama.
Phoebe – Friends (Is she lead? Dunno)
Rhoda and Betty White’s character whose name I forget – The Mary Tyler Moore Show
Jane – Coupling
Emily, Laine, and Paris – Gilmore Girls
Juliet – Psych
Tina Fey – SNL
Samantha Bee – The Daily Show
Olive SnookÂ from Pushing Daisies
Lucille Bluth from Arrested Development (I feel like someone else mentioned her, but I’m not sure if she’s lead or supporting)
Nessa from Gavin and Stacey
Wilhelmina Slater from Ugly Betty
I’m sure I’ll think of more.
Olive Snook!!! I love her.
Also second the always charming Lucille Bluth (unless she’s in the lead category).
Ann Perkins and April Ludgate from Parks and Recreation!
I’ll probably have more later…
Betty White’s character on Mary Tyler Moore (Suzanne Blevins? Am I remembering that right?)
Ethel, I Love Lucy.
Rudy the underestimated Huxtable, The Cosby Show
Charlene and Suzanne, Designing Woman
Busy Phillip’s character on Cougar Town and/or Freaks and Geeks
KAT DEELY. If she can’t have an emmy for SYTYCD, she can be an honorary Persephoneer.
Betty was Sue Anne Nivens. Your memory was close!
Juliet O’Hara from Psych!
Jen from the IT Crowd (Is she supporting or leading? They’re all supporting, really!)
Prairie Dawn from Sesame Street
Mahandra from Wonderfalls (Does anyone else even know what I’m talking about?)
Dana Whitaker from Sports Night (see my question re: Jen!)
Tasha Mack from The Game
Mona from Who’s the Boss
Kari Byron from Mythbusters (Is that a variety show? It’s kind of funny. Do we have an educational category we could put her? I know she’s not a fictional character, but…)
I’d consider Dana the lead in Sports Night, but I have a Desperate-Housewives-excepting crush on Felicity Huffman. I may have a bias.
I feel like that’s the trouble with defining ensemble shows like that. Who’s a lead and who’s supporting when six or seven characters all get about the same air time?
See: Everyone who’s not Whitley on A Different World. (Because OBVIOUSLY Whitley is the star. Of everything.)
Speaking of, have we nominated Whitley yet? I’m going to check…
If not, I officially nominate her!
