    With only less than 2 months before the ending of the current eligibility period of the Emmy’s, it’s time to talk about tape suggestions for shows and actors.

    List in this thread what you think each comedy show/actor should submit if they were to be nominated.

    I think “Agent of Change” would be a much better tape for Laura Dern than “All I Ever Wanted” because it’s more comedic. That whole season is an embarrassment of riches though so if she’s nominated I think she could win with almost anything.

    Girls
    Lena Dunham (Lead Actress) – “Together” (2-10)
    Allison Williams (Supp. Actress) – “On All Fours” (2-09)
    Zosia Mamet (Supp. Actress) – “Together” (2-10)
    Jemima Kirke (Supp. Actress) – “It’s a Shame About Ray” (2-04)
    Adam Driver (Supp. Actor) – “Boys” (2-06)
    Patrick Wilson (Guest Actor) – “One Man’s Trash” (2-05)
    Andrew Rannells (Guest Actor) – “Bad Friend” (2-03)

    I think Adam Driver could also choose “On All Fours” but he was kind of disturbing/disturbed in that one, so who knows? I wonder if any of the other guest actors (Rita Wilson, Rosanna Arquette, Becky Ann Baker, Peter Scolari, etc.) will submit.

    Sofia Vergara (Supporting Actress) – “Diamond in the Rough” (alt: “Party Crasher”)

    Julie Bowen (Supporting Actress) – “Open House of Horrors” (alt: “Heart Broken”)

    Ty Burrell (Supporting Actor) – “Arrested” (alt: “Mistery Date”)

    Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Supporting Actor) – “The Wow Factor”

    The Office

    Rainn Wilson (Supporting Actor) – “The Whale” (alt: “Junior Salesman”)

    I’ll come back later and suggest some for the cast of The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother

    See I was thinking Dern’s best comedic submission would be “Follow Me” (“Do you have a Twitter, Dougie?”) while her best performance submission would be “All I Ever Wanted” (“He’s at the front door, Mom, I can’t get a f***ing haircut! + her breakdown over Levi’s return). For sentiment and feel-good flavor, by far the finale. Right there are three solid submissions. I’m telling ya, if Dern can just break through with a nomination, I really think she could win this.

    ^ Lynch was great in ‘Shooting Star’. But she was only in the last 10 minutes, and not comedic… like at all.

    She was hilarious in ‘I Do’.

    Whatever Laura Dern submits, she’ll win. Every single episode from this season could a winning tape. Yup, she was that good. Sadly, she won’t be even nominated.
