    Hi guys, I’ve been watching what Ricky Gervais been doing in twitter with his campaign, and I think he’s smart. If it was for a Globe I would buy it in a heart beat, but we know the Emmys don’t follow must of the usual rules. So, how much do you think a campaign can help a nominee? Specially in categories like lead actor in comedy, where we all know how the voting works.

    I personally don’t think it helps one bit, but if any voters are Twitter people, and they follow Gervais, they would be amused by his antics, and therefore might be more inclined to give him a No. 1 vote. But all in all, I don’t think it matters that much. 

    I love this about the Emmys, and I also love how there are no pre-cursor awards, like what happens with the Oscars, therefore it’s always a nice surprise who wins on Emmy night. Imagine how boring it would be if, say, Louis-Dreyfus and Gervais had been winning 27 awards each for these exact episodes right up until Emmy night. No excitement whatsoever then!

    The Campaign helps you get a nomination, however you win the Emmy based on your tape…

    If tapes did matter, then Frances Conroy should’ve won for Six Feet Under and America Ferrera would have two Emmys now.

    And if campaigning helps, OH IT DOES A LOT! (Not if you are VERY WELL KNOWN and on a critically acclaimed work on HBO).
