    If he’s nominated, I’m thinking he should submit the pilot for Emmy consideration. What about you guys and gals?

    Likeability is a huge issue.  The first three episodes are the highest-rated episodes on IMDb and that is probably because that is when he is most relatable, plus it does not hurt to submit a generally strong episode.  These early episodes are also heavily focused on Phil because the rest of the cast has not shown up.  The pilot is nice because it is an original concept, but a lot of it is just him walking around in silence, which does not make it much of an acting showcase.  The third episode “Raisin Balls and Wedding Bells” is very much a Carol episode with Phil being reactionary and we already know that Kristen Schaal is going to submit it as such if nominated.

    I would go with the second episode.  This is maybe the funniest episode of the show and we have seen time and time again over the last few years that you cannot win with a dramatic tape in the comedy categories, which the pilot very much is relative to most episodes of the show, with Phil even attempting suicide at the end of it.  In “The Elephant in the Room”, Phil gets to be at wit’s end because of how the last woman on earth is and there is also physical humour both when he sneaks into the tomato garden in the middle of the night like a wild animal and when he is trying to install the water system.  This brings me to another great reason to submit this episode, which is that this is one of like two episodes in which Phil actually finds redemption and gets to play the hero.

    He could submit both “Alive in Tucson” and “The Elephant in the Room” since they aired as a single extended broadcast, but all of this is moot anyway because Jim Parsons is going to steamroll, so I would just submit one episode and avoid angering anyone by making them sit through more.

    I think he should go with Pranks for Nothin. He is has a nice arc that ends with him being reaccepted by the group. The episode is a little bit dramatic but it is also quite funny and a showcase for Forte who displays a ton of range. I think he would be competative with this tape.

    Bookmarking this thread. When the episode air where half of Forte’s head ends up bald, I think he’ll be hard to beat. I mean, how many gimmick episodes did Baldwin & Parsons win with?

    will the show score some major nominations this year?

    Series maybe?

    Any actor apart from Forte? Will Kristin Schaal be submitted supporting this season? What about her season on the show?

    Schaal has been underused this season. I think Guest Actor for Jason Sudeikis is a good bet. They gave him an entire episode to himself which had some depth, finally addressing where the bodies of the plague victims went

    Jason Sudeikis probably has the next best chance at an Emmy nomination, after Will Forte of course. The mid-season premiere, “Pitch Black” is an excellent choice for an Emmy tape.

    While I love Kristen Schaal, she doesn’t really have a standout episode in Season 2. Maybe the Season 2 premiere “Is There Anybody Out There?” (it was just her and Will Forte the entire episode) or “Secret Santa”

    I think that it gets dropped entirely from all categories.  Hope that I am wrong!

    If Will Forte wins Best Actor in a Comedy, tonight’s episode is the one that will do it. The shear insanity of his performance (have his head shaved, white makeup to hide the other half of his face which was painted blue), on a frantic mission to get even with his brother (Jason Sudeikis), for the episode to end on a poignant note about missing their parents who died in the virus outbreak. This episode was a comedic tour de force, and will be one of the best episodes on television for the entire year.
