Exclusive: Emmy episode submissions for Claire Danes, Ty Burrell, Amy Poehler

Gold Derby has exclusively confirmed several of this year’s Emmy Awards episode submissions for top nominees. Today’s list includes defending champ Claire Danes (“Homeland“), past winner Ty Burrell (“Modern Family“), and multiple nominee Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation“).

Once nominations were announced on July 18, each of this year’s nominees in the series, lead, and supporting races must select their best episodes for the Emmy judging panels. Series producers choose six episodes for each show. Actors and actresses submit one episode each.

The following titles were provided to us by networks, studios and/or public relations reps today. The remainder of the episodes will be confirmed throughout this week.

BEST DRAMA ACTRESS:
Claire Danes, “Homeland” – episode “Q&A”

BEST COMEDY ACTRESS:
Amy Poehler, “Parks and Recreation” – episode “Emergency Response/Leslie and Ben”

BEST COMEDY SUPPORTING ACTOR:
Ty Burrell, “Modern Family” – episode “Mistery Date”

Poehler is using a little-known rule to be able to submit two episodes that aired on different dates. Because “Emergency Response” ends with the words “To Be Continued” at the end of the show and the storyline concludes the following week on “Leslie and Ben,” the rulebook says they can be entered together if the nominee chooses.

  1. “Q&A” is Homeland’s standout episode nominated for writing and directing, so a no-brainer for Claire and Damian. She could’ve gone with “State of Independence” too with the suicide attempt and the scene with Saul at the end.

  2. I think Claire picked wrong. In Q&A she has screen time and the really good interrogation scene, but nothing else. In Beruit Is Back she has two looks, gets to act bipolor/unstable, has screen time and a good scene with Saul on the roof at the end. Also New Car Smell she has to be a character pretending to be nice to lure in Brody. So that episode featured lots of duality. The bar scene, outside the steps of the cia, the hotel room scene too when i think about it. That was for me the most satisfying moment all season. And it felt that way for the character. I think shes vulnerable now with this choice.
