Can Minnie Driver (‘About a Boy’) win an Emmy for going crazy and playing drunk? (Exclusive Video)

About a Boy” star  Minnie Driver revealed to Gold Derby during our recent webcam chat (watch below) that she can’t make up her mind about what episode to submit to Emmy  voters if she is nominated for Best Comedy Actress.

Does she opt for the showy drunk option (“About a Poker Night”), nutty romantic comedy (“About a Plumber”) or poignant drama (“About a Boy’s Dad”)?

“I really like the poker episode,” she admits. As this always candid actress explains, “I really like getting hammered. I think you get a real insight into her.” But, she add, “I like the plumber episode when she goes out on a date and it’s a disaster.” And, she says, “Although it was more emotional and wasn’t funny, I really love the the one with Tony Hale about a boy’s dad when he comes to visit from Antarctica.”
