    Robin Wright (or somebody) completely botched her Emmy episode submission last year for “House of Cards.” Will she select the correct episode this time?

    It has to be “Chapter 32,” right? She has the long scenes in the Russian prison and then the righteous speech at the end defiantly going against what she was told to say.

    Isn’t that the episode Netflix played at a recent event? That kind of tells you they know that’s one of their best episodes so they probably won’t screw this one up.

    She practically gave away the Emmy last year, so maybe she’ll listen to people who know better this time.

    32 is her best by far. She has the screen time, the impact, and the emotional hook that always play well in this category. She also butts heads with Frank for really the first time. it also spurred the overall change in their relationship in subsequent episodes. I’m very afraid that she’ll ultimately go with the season finale like last year. It’s obviously a mistake, but it’s not the worst episode to submit. Long story short, she’ll be competitive with 32, where she just won’t be with the finale.

    Robin Wright was very consistent this year, so I am unlikely to have a problem with whatever she submits.  It is not like last year when she had good material in one episode and did nothing too noteworthy in the other twelve.

    Chapter 32 was Season 3’s best episode, too, so I’d be very surprised if she didn’t submit since it was probably submitted elsewhere for directing/writing (haven’t verified this yet, though)

    ^ ^ ^ It’s one of three of “House of Cards”‘s entries in Writing. It’s not included at all in its four entries in Directing. 🙁 They could very well be excluded from both categories b/c of this.

    Robin Wright has to submit “Chapter 32” for her tape! I’m still fuming that Christian Camargo wasn’t submitted at all in Guest Actor in a Drama Series when so many also-rans were submitted instead.

    Question: does the Academy do any checking to make sure each voter actually watches the submitted episode (along the lines of, say, having the voter log in to the site with the online episodes, then, when an episode has been watched, the voter has to re-enter his/her credentials to confirm that the episode has been watched, or at least played), or is it prety much on the honor system (“Well, I didn’t watch her in that particular episode, but I saw her in a couple of others from this season; does it really make that much difference?”)?

    As far as I am concerned, Episode 32 is her ONLY chance to win. The moment I saw that episode it just stood out in a very good way. Don’t mess it up this time Robin!

    Probably not, she will always be a broing nominee.

    I’m glad we are all on the same page! She was amazing in Chapter 32 and it will tremendously help that gay marriage was legalized and the whole theme of the episode is gay pride and gay legalization. Go Robin!!

    I agree, Chapter 32 is her best option (she can even win with it), but I think she had such a good season that even if she submits something else, she still have a chance. But I’m also pretty sure that her submission will be the season finale.

    I think she is not submitting those episodes herself and I can’t believe that attention for the last year’s mistake didn’t reach her. This time it won’t happen again. Otherwise she should not bother to show up if she doesn’t even know how the system works.

    If she does, it will be one tight race between her and Henson with Empire’s pilot.

    If Wright gets in, then she and Taraji P. Henson will be Kyra Sedgwick/Julianna Margulies all over again. Sedgwick was on her fifth nomination, while Wright would only be on her third. Margulies was on the hot new drama series of the season. Sedgwick had the best episode while Margulies had the highest level of buzz. If it comes down to buzz, then of course Henson wins. But if it comes down to episodes, Wright wins. Wright in “Ch. 32” is a better and bigger performance than Henson in “Pilot” and “Our Dancing Days.” They’re both ensemble shows, but Wright takes front-and-center in her ep, while Henson is lost in the ensemble of her series. 

    But don’t count out Vera Farmiga. If she gets in and submits “Norma Louise,” I throw my papers in the air and just wait until Emmy night.
