Exclusive: Emmy episode submissions for ‘Louie,’ ‘The Good Wife,’ Jim Parsons, Claire Danes, …

Gold Derby has exclusively confirmed the titles of episodes being submitted to Emmy judges for some of the nominated performers from “The Big Bang Theory“, “The Good Wife,” “Homeland,” “Louie,” “Masters of Sex,” “Modern Family“, “Mom,” “Portlandia,”, and “Shameless.”

After Emmy nominations were announced on July 10, nominees were tasked with submitting samples of their best work to judges. Series producers choose six episodes of each show, which are distributed randomly to three groups of voters (all members of the TV academy are invited to participate) who view two episodes. Actors submit one episode to juries comprised of other actors.

The following titles were provided to us by networks, studios and/or public relations reps today.

  1. Drama Actress will be crazy with The Star for Danes vs. The Last Call for Margulies vs. Chapter 17 (probably) for Wright. But we now have confirmation that Drama Supporting Actor will be Confessions for Paul vs. The Laws of Gods and Men for Dinklage vs. Hitting the Fan for Charles! YIKES.

  2. I’m sure Louis C.K. always picks the episodes he’s most proud of, but I don’t think he ever chooses very well with his acting submissions. Pamela pt. 3 would have given him a better shot. His comedy series choices are great though. And I think Claire Danes could have gone with anything over The Star. Homeland used to be my favorite show, but The Star really ruined the series for me. I don’t know, just my opinion. It’s probably worth nothing. I figured Lizzy Caplan would go with the pilot and William H. Macy would go with Lazarus and Charles would go with Hitting the Fan. They’re probably the best choice for all three. I love Macy at the end of that Lazarus episode railing against God out in the middle of that very real polar vortex. Yelling at God worked for Bobby Cannavale last year, so, maybe it works for Macy this year. I’m picking him.

  3. I assumed Danes would go with The Star since she’s given SO much to do in that episode. It has her on the run with Brody one last time in Iran, Carrie finally telling him she’s pregnant and crying, scaling the fence during his hanging. But my favorite moment in the entire episode is that small scene with her dad and sister where she finally has to contemplate what she has to do with her future baby and life after Brody. It’s also James Rebhorn’s final scene, maybe of his career.
