    When I ran into Eric Stonestreet last night at the Critics Choice TV Awards, I asked him what episode of “Modern Family” he’s planning to submit to Emmy judges this  year. He replied, “I have no idea if I will even get nominated.” If he does, he hasn’t yet made up his mind what to enter and he wondered if we had thoughts.

    So let me pose the question to YOU in the forums. Blab your views here and, if we get a lively discussion going, I’ll send this link to Eric …. tx

    I really wish I knew.  Last season was not a great showcase for Stonestreet.  What do people think about him submitting “Door to Door”?That was the episode where he yells, STELLA!!!!

    First I think he is not even deserving to be in the conversation, his best for me is “After the Fall”, that still is not really that great but better for E O’Neil, no moern family actors deserve nominations, no nominations this year hopefully expect for Ellen Barkin

    I guess Door to Door has his baitiest scenes and lots of Emmy clips in the episode. I’ll probably revisit the season first to come up with a final decision. LOL.

    2010 = Phenomenal submission (“Fizbo”)

    2011 = Terrible submission (“Mother’s Day”). Stonestreet should’ve submitted
    “The Musical Man” where he’s being over zealous about a school production with
    Luke and Manny, with “Two Monkeys and a Panda” being an alternative because of
    his emotional scenes with Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his flashback scenes of fret
    over adopting a baby.

    Now…

    2012 = Stonestreet should submit “Send Out the Clowns” because the first minute
    is hysterical with him being dressed up as Fizbo and because of his on-screen
    time with Bobby Cannavale, who actually got a nomination for the role at the
    2nd Critics’ Choice Television Awards. Stonestreet is really funny and has
    quite a bit of screen time.
                The
    alternative would be “Treehouse” because he’s pretending to be straight with
    lots of confidence and proving that he can be womanizer to Mitchell, along with
    him having great chemistry and flirtation with Leslie Mann, and has a hilarious
    scene where Mann’s character, Katie, gives Cam one helluva kiss before she
    leaves, which is laugh-out-loud funny. Cam is then flustered when asked about
    his sexuality and Stonestreet is so amazing in that scene.

    That is my perspective on what Stonestreet should submit.

    My personal choice for Stonestreet’s submission would be “Treehouse.”  I thought it was his most memorable storyline of the season and that his interplay with Mann was fantastic.  I would err away from choosing “Send Out the Clowns” in that it would inevitably be compared to his winning submission of 2010, and many people might see it as being the inferior cousin of the amazing “Fizbo.”

    Treehouse. Or nothing. That would be his best submission.

    “Baby On Board”… it has a nice arch for Cam & Mitchell and may tug at voters hearts.  A stark departure from the kind of episodes he typically submits, and in this he is really able to show range.

    Also worth considering, “Planes, Trains & Cars” where Mitchell and Cameron search the city for Lily’s favortie stuffed toy.

    Please, just anything except “Send Out The Clowns”, the worst episode yet.

    Treehouse is his best bet.

    Completely agreed about Treehouse.  When I saw it I really thought it  was his best shot!

    I think his best bet is either “Treehouse” or “Door to Door”.

    He’s his most likable at Treehouse (which if he submits helps O’Neill the most, with his “learning to dance scenes) but his funniest moment of the season is probably in “Door to Door” (the Stella bit) which could propel him to a second win.

    I agree…Eric Stonestreet’s character is the most likeable in “Treehouse,” but the scene that stands out the most for me all season that had me laughing the most from Stonestreet was “Door to Door,” where his character Cam and Gloria (Sofia Vergara) are looking for Stella.  The only problem is that perhaps “Door to Door” might not showcase enough of Cam, where he gets a lot of screen time in “Treehouse.”

    Either one of these episodes seems like the only good options for Stonestreet. Anything else pales in comparison to these episodes for Stonestreet.

    Treehouse would be my top choice, and I think Virgin Territory (where he pretends to have an injured back so he can rummage through Claire’s stuff looking for his tupperware container) would be my second.  Send Out the Clowns is just too close to the submission that won for him two years ago and would probably guarantee he wouldn’t win.  I found him very irritating in Door to Door.
