The episode submission for Louis C.K. is “Daddy’s Girlfriend, Part 1”.July 26, 2013 at 9:02 pm #291645
Bad decision. C.K. just gave this to Jim Parsons. Why he decided to go with “Daddy’s Girlfriend Pt. 1” instead of “New Year’s Eve” or “Late Show” is beyond me. He is funny in a sorta pervy, endearing way, but endearing doesn’t translate to acting Emmy. Congratulations on your third Emmy, Jim Parsons.July 26, 2013 at 9:25 pm #291646
I’ve been saying that Louis CK would pick a bad episode for awhile now. He’s proven to be someone who just isn’t good at picking episodes. The series eps probably aren’t going to be much better.July 26, 2013 at 9:31 pm #291647
The series choices were much, much better.July 26, 2013 at 9:41 pm #291648
Oops, I didn’t even realize he submitted the series tapes.
They’re actually really good, too. Late Show Pt. 1 is merely ok, but he managed to put together some Emmy-friendly combos. Anyway, I’ve yet to watch Parson’s tape, so I’ll probably do that soon. From what I remember, in “Daddy’s Girlfriend Pt. 1”, Louie just walks around the school or the library and fantasizes about different girls?
I’ll have to rewatch that one, too. I was blown away by “Late Show Pt. III”, and am disappointed that he didn’t submit it.July 26, 2013 at 10:52 pm #291649
Cheadle chose well. Cheadle should win.July 27, 2013 at 3:15 am #291650
Louis CK could pick his worst episode and it would still be miles better than anything from Parsons. How depressing that the totally overrated Parsons is considered the frontrunner…July 27, 2013 at 4:16 am #291651
There was come confusion in the old thread about whether or not Louis C.K. will be eligible at next year’s Emmys. According to Wikipedia, the fourth season of “Louie” will premiere May 2014. Assuming there will be 13 episodes, that means the majority will air after the cut-off date of May 31, so we won’t be seeing anything from “Louie” at the 2014 Emmys.
All of that could change if FX decides to air the fourth season earlier than May, or if they double-up the episodes in order to get more episodes in before the deadline. We’ll see.July 27, 2013 at 4:23 am #291652
I’ll honestly be happy if anyone but Parsons wins in Lead Actor, but a win for him seems inevitable. (Sigh)
I think Dreyfus will rightfully repeat in Actress. That was a great season, and a sublime tape. (Couldn’t stop laughing at her snapping at her staff in the hotel suite scene.) Fey’s tape was definitely emotional, but it wasn’t her funniest tape (Besides the Gothmom blog scene), and I think she has a better shot in writing for that episode. I have yet to see Poehler’s episode, but I have never cared for that show or her performance in it either. (And I love Amy!) I think Dern is the dark horse here, because while it wasn’t comedic, her acting was downright phenominal in her tape.July 27, 2013 at 6:17 am #291653
Lena Dunham submitted a horrible episode for her. It’s basically her jacked up on cocaine. Epic fail! I have yet to watch Julia’s tape but she seems like the frontrunner.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantJuly 27, 2013 at 6:42 am #291654
C.K just basically gave the Emmy to Parsons with that episode. He had “Late Show (Part III) and “New Year’s Eve”, which both would have been really competitive episodes. Yet, you choose an episode in which you just walk around fantasizing about girls the entire episode. This is really disappointing. And I thought “Bully” was a bad acting submission.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantJuly 27, 2013 at 6:48 am #291655
The series choices were much, much better.
Yeah, the series submissions were brilliant. Also, for the people who think that “Late Show (Part I) shouldn’t have been submitted in its series tapes, it was kind of a must-submit episode. You can’t just skip Part I and submit Parts II and III. The Emmy voters would have been lost.July 27, 2013 at 8:52 am #291656
Except voters who will be watching Part 3 won’t be watching Parts 1 & 2, and if he was gonna to submit Part 2, it should be with Part 3. And you don’t need Part 1 to understand Part 2. Part 2 is the most stand-alone episode of the three and works on its own. The pairings they made work, but Late Show Part 1 wasn’t vital.July 27, 2013 at 9:08 am #291657
Jim Parsons will win again and continue the 3 year streak of multicam winners in that category. He chose the perfect episode and Louis C.K. would’ve been competetive with Late Show (Part 3) or New Year’s Eve or even Telling Jokes/Set Up.
