Lead Actress - Comedy

Sarah Jessica Parker

Series: “Sex and the City”

Seasons on show: 5

Emmy pedigree: Four-time nominee

2001-02 shining moment: Her breakup with John Corbett and then dealing with the absence of Christopher Noth, who leaves New York and moves to California.

Pro: Everything HBO touches these days is golden.

Con: Will the buzz for “Six Feet Under” and “The Sopranos” mean backlash time for “Sex and the City”?

Quotable: “Her heartbeat is synchronized with the city. … What I like about Carrie is that she has made some bad decisions, but they actually seem to have informed her and made her better. She’s found she has a moral compass but doesn’t always weigh everything by it.”

Critical viewpoint: “‘Sex and the City’ matured this season, and no one was more affected than Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw. Parker pulled off the always difficult task of making her character less funny and more touching.” Allan Johnson, Chicago Tribune
