This is a list of winners and nominees of the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.[1] Prior to 1989, the category was not gender specific, thus was called Outstanding Guest Performer in a Comedy Series. These awards, like the other "Guest" awards, were previously not presented at the Primetime Emmy Award ceremony, but rather at the Creative Arts Emmy Award ceremony.
