    I have fallen in love with Outlander – I didn’t watch it until this past month but I remember many were unhappy that it wasn’t nominated for any major Emmys last year (and now that I have seen those episodes I wholeheartedly agree – Caitriona Balfe certainly ought to have won last year’s Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama Series and I certainly expect her to be nominated this year).

    What are the dates of eligibility? I ask because I am wondering if “Wentworth Prison” and “To Ransom a Man’s Soul” – both originally aired in May 2015 – will be eligible for recognition this year? I would expect for Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies to both get richly deserved nominations for the harrowing rape scenes in either one of those episodes (not for the squeamish, certainly). I loved Balfe’s performance in the May 2015 episode “The Search” but this season’s “Through A Glass, Darkly” would be an excellent episode for her as well. (:

    I hope the Emmys have the good sense to nominate the show as Best Drama Series, Best Actress (Balfe), Best Actor (Heughen) and Best Supporting Actor (Menzies), and certainly for Direction, Writing, Costumes, Cinematography, Editing, Sound, Music Composition, etc. The show is superb! And I want Balfe to WIN – she’s brilliant! (: We’ll see… nowadays there are so many different shows competing it’s impossible to see them all to know if they deserve recognition or not….

    Except in the case of “hanging episodes”, the eligibility period is June to May. Those episodes that you mentioned were not hanging onto the season that is airing now, so they are ineligible this year.

    Wentworth Prison and To Ransom A Man’s Soul were eligible for last year Emmys. They are not eligible for this year.

    As for this year, from my understanding of hanging episodes rule, almost entire season 2 (episodes 201-212) will be eligible, but season finale (ep. 213) will not be eligible. 212 airs on June 25, so it will be eligible for this year because of hanging episodes rule, but ep. 213, which airs July 2, will not and it will be eligible for next year Emmys. Is that correct?
