    Now that the deadline is over for this years Emmy eligibility period, when will the ballot that shows all of the submissions be online?

    Monday evening

    ETA: Let this be the official ballot reactions thread.

    Since they redid the Emmy website, I am not sure where exactly the ballots will pop up.  Honestly, I cannot even say that they will be available to the public as they have been in past years, so fingers crossed.  Unlike in past years when voting opened at six in the evening, voting apparently opens this year at nine in the morning, so we might be just over a couple of hours from the ballot.

    Information on the new system is at http://www.emmys.com/online-voting.

    Also check out my introductory article to the ballots from last year, which was my first article.

    The Television Academy will kick off Primetime Emmy Awards voting this Monday evening on June 9th when they post this year’s nominating ballots for dozens of categories online.  The ballots annually bring with them broad sets of revelations; here are a few specific questions that they will answer this year:

    Who will submit themselves?  Studios submit many of their actors and build campaigns around them, but those who they do not may still submit themselves.  Although they are not listed For Your Consideration with screener DVDs, actors who submit themselves are variably nominated over those who do not file their own paperwork.  20th Century Fox is not submitting Nathan Lane for Modern Family this year, even though he has better material than when he was last nominated for his guest role—just last year! The ballot will tell if he is back in the race.  Another one to watch for is Laverne Cox of Orange is the New Black; she was recently nominated for a Critics’ Choice Television Award and is on the cover of Time magazine for a story about transgender people.  Probably to combat vote-splitting amongst the ensemble cast, Netflix had intended to submit just two supporting and two guest actresses from the show and Cox was not one of them.  It would seem remiss if she did not appear on the ballot after all of this press, but it may have been too late, as the deadline to submit was back in April, even for in-progress shows.  If Cox did enter, there is also the question of where—despite her guest status, the Critics’ Choice bumped her up to supporting.

    What episodes will shows push?  The penultimate episode is annually the climax for Game of Thrones and has been the episode that the show has entered in most categories.  This year, it may not be such an obvious choice, as other episodes like the one that featured the infamous Purple Wedding, the one that might win Peter Dinklage another Emmy or last week’s violent shocker have all been extraordinarily received.

    How many continuing series will pretend to be miniseries this time?  Under the Dome was renewed for a second season before even half of its first season had aired, but that did not stop CBS from entering the show as a miniseries for the Golden Globes several months later.  It was not nominated, so the question is if they will adopt the same strategy for the Emmys, especially as the Emmy timeline will overlap with the broadcast of the new season.

    Will the guest ballot look weird?  One rule change that was announced recently was that guest stars will now be judged by full episodes instead of montages of a guest’s scenes in a single episode and that these episodes would be entered upon nomination instead of as part of initial submission for the ballot.  This suggests that the guest ballot will no longer describe the material that the actors have in their submitted episodes and will merely be a list of names and head shots like the other acting ballots.

    Great questions.

    I just want to know how many episodes Game of Thrones and Veep are submitting for writing and directing.

    Awesome info and questions. I keep checking the Emmy website but haven’t seen anything. I am a little worried too that the ballots won’t be available this year because of the voting system, but I really hope they are. Half the fun is seeing the first line up!

    Jon Cryer is now Jonathan Cryer?

    “Continuum” is on the ballot! Someone is going to be very happy.

    “Under the Dome” is in Drama Series.

    Sundance TV’s “The Red Road” is in Miniseries. Hasn’t it been renewed for a second season?

    What the …..The Good Wife, submitting ‘The Last Call’ and not ‘Hitting The Fan’. A very strong dramatic episode sure, nomination worthy, but no HTF.

    “Veep” submitted one episode for Writing: “Special Relationship”. It may get nominated this year.

    Not that it matters, but “Wilfred” has submitted 9 episodes for Writing.

    “The Americans” has submitted 8 episodes for Writing.

    No “HItting the Fan” in Writing in a Drama Series? Yikes, what a mistake. That should have been the go-to episode for writing and directing this year.

    “Justified” has submitted 10 episodes in Writing. Is that a record?

    “Game of Thrones” has submitted the season finale.

    “Mad Men” has submitted 7 episodes, so basically the whole season.

    Louie submitted “So Did the Fat Lady” and Pamela Part 3 for writing. Guessing the former will be nominated
