Gold Derby has exclusively learned the episodes that will be submitted to the Emmys by two of the 2015 nominees for Best Comedy Supporting Actor. Andre Braugher is entering the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" episode titled "The Mole." Ty Burrell from "Modern Family" chooses the episode called "Crying Out Loud."
This year marks the ninth career Emmy nomination for Braugher and the second straight in this category. He is a past two-time winner for "Homicide: Life on the Street" (1998) and "Thief" (2006). He plays Captain Ray Holt on the Fox comedy, and in this fifth episode of the second season, "Captain Holt and Jake try to find a mole in their precinct before Deputy Chief Madeline Wuntch hears about it. Elsewhere, Terry and Rosa visit a silent disco to look for leads for their drug task force."
Burrell has won this category twice in 2011 and 2014 for playing eager-to-please dad Phil Dunphy on the ABC comedy. This is his sixth consecutive nomination, and on this 23rd episode of the sixth season, "Claire gets a job offer from a big hotel chain, but can't tell if Jay wants her to take it or keep working for him. Meanwhile, Phil, Haley and Luke are more interested in Alex's senior ditch day than she is."
We will continue to reveal all other Emmy submissions this year for the series and acting races as they are provided to us by networks, studios, or personal reps.
Who do you think will win Best Comedy Supporting Actor? These two men compete against past champ Tony Hale ("Veep"), previous nominee Adam Driver ("Girls"), and first-timers Tituss Burgess ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt") and Keegan-Michael Key ("Key and Peele").
