Peeking into the Fox Studios Emmy campaign

While “Modern Family” airs on ABC, it is actually a production of Fox Studios and is once again a key part of their Emmy Awards campaign. It will be returning to defend its two consecutive trophies for Best Comedy Series and also has its six adult stars in contention again in the supporting categories.

Golden Globe nominated comedy “New Girl” is among the rookie programs aiming to claim new Emmy slots for Fox. Its star Zooey Deschanel is a good bet to compete as Best Comedy Actress, as is one of the season’s highlights, Max Greenfield, in supporting. Other freshman series include “Awake,” “Don’t Trust,” “Last Man Standing,” and “Touch.”

Among returning shows, all acting placements are in line with last year with the exception of Cloris Leachman moving from guest to supporting and Garret Dillahunt trying for the lead race after failing to receive a supporting bid for “Raising Hope.” The other Fox shows in the campaign are “Bones,” “Glee,” and “How I Met Your Mother.”

Gold Derby has confirmed the official acting category submissions from Fox Studios for shows that it produces for Fox, plus ABC, CBS, and NBC. Performers not on this list may well be submitting on their own.

One thought on “Peeking into the Fox Studios Emmy campaign

  1. Goldderby, is that the full list? Did Fox submit Jeff Goldbum, Brian Stokes Mitchell as guest stars because they were down right hilarious in the “Heart” episode of Glee. And What about Whoopi Goldberg?
