Gold Derby has exclusively learned the episodes that will be submitted to the Emmys by two more of the 2015 nominees for Best Comedy Actor. Anthony Anderson is entering the “Black-ish” episode titled “Sex, Lies and Vasectomies.” Louis C.K. chooses the “Louie” episode “Bobby’s House.”
Despite many year working on television, this is the first Emmy nomination for Anderson. He stars on the ABC comedy as Andre (“Dre”) Johnson, an advertising executive and family man in the suburbs. His episode submission is the 18th of the first season, offering a plot where his wife Rainbow “learns from her colleague that Dre never had the vasectomy a few years back that he was supposedly scheduled, so she decides to see if he’ll come clean and tell the truth.”
C.K. is a five-time Emmy winner, with all of his past victories in writing categories. He has a total of seven nods this year combined for “Louie” and his variety special “Louis C.K.: Live at the Comedy Store,” bringing his career total to 37.
In his series, he plays a fictionalized version of himself. On the episode submitted to voters, he “goes to a wake with his brother and gets beat up on the street by a woman. Pamela gives Louie a makeover to mask his injuries so he can perform on stage.”
Below, watch our recent contender video interview with Anderson.
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 Actor? These two men compete against returning nominees Don Cheadle (“House of Lies“), Matt LeBlanc (“Episodes“), and William H. Macy (“Shameless“) and previous nominees for other categories Will Forte (“The Last Man on Earth“) and Jeffrey Tambor (“Transparent“).
