    As Kerry Washington’s buzz continues to build, a nom is looking more and more likely. So let’s discuss what eppy should she submit. I’m making this question its own special thread because I keep hearing that she’s got SO MANY to choose from. Which one, do you think?

    I find her performance and range fairly similar from one what episode to the other, but most people point to “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” as her most likely submission.

    One episode I remember well is “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” and I think that would be a great submission for her.

    Not having seen the show, I have only heard buzz for “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” as a potential submission for her.

    I saw the whole season last week, I think she should go with Happy Birthday too. I agree that the range is pretty much the same in every episode, some people get “a very special episode” or two each season, but she didn’t necessarily get one and if she did, it was the shooting. Her reaction to the whole thing was great so she should go with that, she also has some great scenes once she takes over her old job at the White House. 

    She did get some great stuff here and there in other episodes, but nothing as complete as Happy Birthday.

    It’s not a winner, specially against the competition she has, but for her first ever submission in a case where the nomination will be her reward (if she gets nominated), I think it’s a pretty good episode.

    People (actors/actresses) should be nominated base onmerit not buzz/hype….I don.t findthis actress anything special maybe because she’s in one of those terrible Shonda Rhime’s show.

    Buzz gets a lot of people nominated.  Kerry Washington wouldn’t be the 1st. 

    “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” would be a great choice.

    Well so much for “SO MANY” tapes to choose from, huh?

    Yeah I don’t know where Tom got that. Maybe because like you said, her range is close to the same in every episode, she has “many” to choose from because they’re all almost the same. But Birthday is the standout.

    Or maybe because she has, technically, 22 episodes to choose from? Which is a lot, really.

    If she gets nominated, I’d say “Happy Birthday, Mr. President”

    I really don’t understand why Kerry Washington gets her own thread just to decide which episode she should submit. What about Claire Danes? Keri Russell? Emmy Rossum–someone who deserves to be nominated for her work and won’t without buzz and without the media going to bat for her? It seems like Kerry Washington is way way overhyped; she is everywhere, she is the hot thing now. She got so much press for Django and she was barely in the film, with very minimal dialogue. She certainly has a really great team of publicists, as the continued attention following that film will probably get her nominated.

    I’m an avid viewer of ‘Scandal’ and I agree w/ the consensus that “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” would be the wisest submission choice from this past season for her.

    Also, I think that Kerry Washington is a very good actress who would be deserving of a nomination.  I don’t see the problem with buzz helping to drive her there.  Buzz is political & it plays a very active role in all the big entertainment awards each year.  In recent years, media hype has helped land a lot of deserving actresses both Emmy nominations and wins. Claire Danes, Lena Dunham, Teri Hatcher, America Ferrera, Tina Fey, and Julianna Margulies immediately come to mind. And there have been legions of actresses preceding them whose buzz (coupled with great performances) got them well deserved Emmy recognition.

    Hopefully, it will benefit Kerry this year.  I do, however, agree with the person above’s comments about her “performance” & subsequent media attention for her work in in Django.  She did virtually nothing & barely spoke the entire film (and won an Image Award for it earlier this year, smh).  But hey, that too is the result of political media posturing. Great PR works wonders!
