An entertainment blogger, Nikki Fine, had an interesting take on comedy and the attractiveness of funny people, women in particular.  Finke was ‘Live Blogging’ the Emmy Awards on Sunday night on her blog for deadline.com.  During her live blogging she was not happy that Julie Bowen won best supporting actress in a comedy series.

Finke had this to say:

“Listen-up, Hollywood: Beautiful actresses are not funny. They don’t know how to do comedy. Only women who grew up ugly and stayed ugly, or through plastic surgery became beautiful, can pull off sitcoms or standups. Bowen isn’t a comedienne just like Brooke Shields wasn’t and a zillion more. Because it’s all about emotional pain and humiliation and rising above both by making people laugh with you instead of at you. So stop casting beautiful actresses when you should be giving ugly women a chance.”

We’re just throwing this out there, but Modern Family is a pretty funny show, with quite a funny list of attractive female cast members. Here is a group photo:

But if you think there is not enough funny in Hollywood like Finke, there might be a few more examples that would be considered the exception to Finke’s rule.

That seems to be a few too many exceptions for the rule of one blogger. But just in case, here is a photo gallery of even more women who shouldn’t be cast in funny roles, because you can’t be funny AND attractive.
