    Some TV episodes this year are nominated for a host of Emmys thanks to writing/directing/acting/series/tech bids, including “Person to Person” (“Mad Men”), “Five-0” (“Better Call Saul”) and “Alive in Tucson” (“The Last Man on Earth”), just to name a few. Does anybody know which comedy episode and which drama episode have the most nominations? And which episodes could realistically WIN the most Emmys this year? thedemonhog probably knows all of this.

    On the Comedy side:
    I think The Last Man On Earth‘s “Alive in Tuscon” has the best shot of being a big winner, because it’s nominated for bothing Writing and Directing, PLUS it’s Will Forte’s episode submission. I think it’s bound to win at least 1 if not 2.

    Louie has “Bobby’s House” nominated for both Writing and as Louis CK’s Lead Actor episode submission.

    Transparent has “Best New Girl’ nominated for both Directing and as Bradley Whitford’s Guest Actor submission.

    Veep has “Election Night” nominated for both Directing and as Julia Louis Dreyfuss’ Lead Actress submission.

    On the Drama side:
    Mad Men has the biggest chance of being the biggest episode winner. “Person to Person was nominated for Writing, and was chosen as both Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss’ submission episodes for Lead Actor and Actress respectively. Additionally, “Lost Horizon” was nominated for Writing, and is Christina Hendrick’s Supporting Actress episode submission.

    Game of Thrones could also be a  big winner. “Mother’s Mercy” was nominated for both Writing and Directing, and is Lena Headey’s Supporting Actress episode submission.

    Better Call Saul’s “Five-0” was nominated for both Writing and as Jonathan Banks’ Supporting Actor episode submission.

    And, while I don’t see this translating into a win for BOTH of them, House of Cards’ “Chapter 32” was both Kevin Spacey’s and Robin Wright’s episode submissions.

    I have Alive in Tucson winning all three of the trophies it is nominated. 
    A case can be made about Mother’s Mercy but I think it will go 0/3.
    Until like a week ago I thought Episode 112 would make both Chandler and Mendelsohn winner now I’m not predicting Chandler.
    Person to Person can and probably will win for Jon Hamm and Writing.
    And I guess that is all.

    It’s also nominated for Pamela Adlon in Guest Actress, which she could very well win.

    On the comedy side it could be “Alive in Tuscon” that proves to be a big winner, currently I have it winning Actor and Writing but I wouldn’t be surprised if it pulled off Directing. For the drama categories “Mother’s Mercy” the Emmys website doesn’t say which episode specifially is nominated in the technical categories but it could win three and help GOT win series also. I only have it winning for Headey and helping the series. But, if it takes writing from Mad Men’s finale that should be the big sign of the night that its going to be named Best Drama. Only one show in recent memory can I remember winning Writing and Directing without taking the Series award and that was the Second season of Malcolm in the Middle. It did this also for its first season without being nominated for series.

    I think “Alive in Tucson”, “Election Night” and “Person to Person” will be the biggest episodic winners of the night. I have them winning two each.

    Definitely “Hardhome” with possible Picture Editing, Cinematography, Art Direction, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Prosthetic Makeup(6) wins.

    And I don’t think it’s right to include actors episode submissions in the mix. They vote for only the actors name in the nomination round, not the episode(Unlike other directing, writing, tech categories.) Actors submit episode after they’re being nominated.
    But if you do however, that episode is also Peter Dinklage’s submission.

    Agree, even though a case could be made about the guest categories, since in that case the specific episode is linked tightly with the actor being nominated.

    I’m going with “Lost Horizon”. It has a pretty good chance to win Drama Writing. Also, Christina Hendricks in the frontrunner (she’s not a sure thing, but she’s the frontrunner right now) to win Drama Supporting Actress. Also, “Person to Person” could win for Jon Hamm and Drama Writing.
