Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy

The Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy is an award presented annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). It is given in honor of an actress who has delivered an outstanding performance in a leading role on a musical or comedy television series for the calendar year.

It was first awarded at the 19th Golden Globe Awards on March 5, 1962 under the title Best TV Star - Female to Pauline Fredericks. The nominees for the award announced annually starting in 1963. The award initially honored actresses in both comedy and drama genres until 1969, when the award was split into categories that honored comedic and dramatic performances separately. It was presented under the new title Best TV Actress – Musical or Comedy and in 1980 under its current title.

Since its inception, the award has been given to 42 actresses. Rachel Brosnahan is the current recipient of the award for her role as the title character on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Brosnahan also won the award in the prior year for the same role. Carol Burnett has won the most awards in this category with five wins and received the most nominations at 12.
