Let’s peek inside Showtime’s Emmy FYC campaign package

Last week 15,000 members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences received Showtime’s Emmy campaign package that included six DVDs with these programs:

“Californication” – episodes 501, 512
“The Big C” – episodes 209, 213
“Homeland” – Pilot, 107
“Inside Comedy” – 104, 105
“Nurse Jackie — 404, 405
“Weeds” – 706, 713
“U2: From the Sky Down”
“Rebirth”
“Keep a Child Alive with Alicia Keys”

Just like last year the pay channel also included a private code that Emmy voters could use to access the FYC website to see more programming.

Last year Showtime had major Emmy Awards nominations across the board for “Dexter” as Best Drama Series and acting nods for Joan Cusack (“Shameless”), Edie Falco (“Nurse Jackie”), Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”), Matt LeBlanc (“Episodes”), Laura Linney (“The Big C”), and Julia Stiles (“Dexter”). Showtime has sent out their 2012 campaign packages and also confirmed with Gold Derby the official category submissions for this year. With many of the same names returning plus hot newcomers like “Homeland” and “House of Lies,” the Emmy haul for the premium channel should be even greater than before.

While the actors and actresses listed below are being submitted by the network itself, keep in mind that other eligible performers could be submitting on their own. The episode selections are confirmed for the guest categories, but leads and supportings do not submit their episode choices unless they are actually nominated in July.
