The 25 Funniest Women in Hollywood

The other night I was watching The House Bunny, and I remember being so impressed with how hilarious and magnetic Emma Stone was. Her comedic timing was perfect and her improv was spot on. It was then that I thought "Psht, it's about time there was a movie that really featured funny females." Sure women have come a long way in cinema, but seeing a movie where the ladies are allowed to stretch their comedic limbs? Sadly it's still rare. Fortunately Entertainment Weekly has created a kick ass list consisting of the 25 funniest women in Hollywood. And of course, my new favorite Emma Stone made the list. Also snagging top spots were obvious choices such as Anna Faris, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Sarah Silverman. Some underated comedians also finally getting their mad props include Kristen Wiig and Jane Lynch. Anyway, here's the full list. I was suprised to see no Molly Shannon. She's a pioneer for women in slapstick. Other than Ms. Molly, are there any women you are suprised to see didn't make the cut?
Anna Faris
Tina Fey
Jane Lynch (yes, and totally underated)
Amy Poehler
Jaime Pressly
Kriten Wiig (love, love, love!!!)
Allison Janney
Isla Fisher
Jane Krakowski
Octavia Spencer
Ari Graynorage
Sarah Silverman
Wanda Sykes
Emily Blunt
Kristen Schaalage
Mindy Kalin
Rashida Jones
Leslie Mann
Emma Stone
Elizabeth Banks
Sarah Burns
Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Nicole Sullivan
Maya Rudolph
Cherl Hinds
And because this post would not be complete without obligatory Kristen Wiig...
