Picks and Pans Review: COMEDY SERIES LEAD ACTRESS
Kirstie Alley, Veronica's Closet (NBC)
Ellen DeGeneres, Ellen (ABC)
Jenna Elfman, Dharma & Greg (ABC)
Calista Flockhart, Ally McBeal (FOX) *
Helen Hunt, Mad About You (NBC)
Patricia Richardson, Home Improvement (ABC)
Ally McBeal was the freshest new show of 1997-98, and a big reason for its success was Flockhart's characterization of a smart, sexy, dreamy lawyer. There's much more to her than miniskirts. Hunt makes no false moves on her veteran series, but she has won two straight Emmys plus last year's Best Actress Oscar. Her mantel must be awfully crowded.
