The competition for Emmy nominations has begun! Some of television’s funniest ladies gathered to kick off the season (nominations will be announced July 18) and dish on their laugh-inducing roles at the Variety Emmy Studio at the Palihouse Hotel in West Hollywood yesterday. Two Broke Girls star Kat Dennings (in Saint Vintage Jewelry), New Girl funny lady Zooey Deschanel (in Monique Lhuillier and Saint Vintage Jewelry), and the always-hysterical Mind Kaling (in M Missoni) of The Mindy Project participated in the Leading Actress in a Comedy Series panel, while Veep star Anna Chlumsky and Cougar Town actress Busy Philipps (in Isabella Oliver) stopped by to discuss their shows. Who will get the coveted nods? We’ll have to wait and see! Click the photo to check out more of this week’s hottest events.
