    The title pretty much sums it up…

    Someone on the other board said they no longer do.  I’m inclined to believe it’s true considering Loretta Devine happened this year and Jane Lynch happened last year.

    I should clarify: I meant after nominees have been picked to determine a winner.

     

    btw, I thought Loretta Devine was great on ‘Grey’s’ this year.

    Yes, I believe guest winners are chosen based on their submitted episodes.

     

    In the other forum, there was discussion of Loretta Devine. Someone said she was in four episodes, but according to a poster who watched the episode she submitted for consideration, her screentime is about 2 minutes long.

    I believe she submitted “This Is How We Do It”. It’s the episode where Meredith and Derek interview Adele for the alzheimer’s trial. I didn’t clock her screen time (I think it must’ve been longer than 2 minutes) but she certainly made an impact because I was not surprised to see her name, other than the fact that I didn’t think ‘Grey’s’ actors were on the radar (besides the snubbed Ramirez)

     

    Anyway, thanks for answering my initial question.

    This was the comment from the other message board measuring her time:

     

     

    I just watched Loretta Devine’s Emmy tape. The episode runs 42:30.

     

    She appears…

    1:18 to 1:55

    25:41 to 26:38

    28:14 to 28:38

    30:32 to 33:38

     

    So with practically no screentime and one godawful crying scene, she gets an Emmy nomination? Honestly, I thought the days of awful Grey’s Anatomy guest stars (save my namesake’s daughter Kate Burton) were over. I guess not because this might be their worst nomination yet. The show itself is absolutely, positively unwatchable. I felt like I was being waterboarded.

     

    The comments about the performance are his, not mine (I haven’t seen it), but you’re right that it’s longer than two minutes. It’s actually just about five. And even Beatrice Straight needed six minutes to win the Oscar for “Network.”

    Good example of somebody with little screentime making the most of it.  Devine does no such thing.

     

    Thank God Randee Heller, Cara Buono, and Julia Stiles are in the mix.  That category can get so bogged down in name recognition that there are years where you have no nominees who got in purely on performance.  If I have to deal with one Loretta Devine so the Mad Men ladies could get in, that’s a fair trade.
