    What do you guys think are the worst Emmy episode submissions ever?

    Again: Laurie Metcalf submitting Listen to the Rain on the Roof instead of Bang for Desperate Housewives in 2007. I’d love to hear why she did that… there must have been a reason for that.

    I want to know why Mayim Bialik submitted “The Shiny Trinket Manuever” instead of “The Isolation Permutation” last year. “The Isolation Permutation” was a winning episode, and yet, she submitted an episode in which she barely has any screentime, and which she has only one scene that showcases her comedic talent.

    I don’t know if it could be considered one of the worst submission ever, but Mary-Louise Parker is notorious on Gold Derby for not submitting “No Man Is Pudding,” which probably would have been a winning submission!

    Rose Byrne submitting ” Your Secrets Are Safe” in 2010.

    Most, if not all, of the Damages acting submission for Season 3 were horrid… Glenn Close got her first two just right, but everybody chose poorly that year.  Martin Short probably did the best, opting for an episode that featured a very good performance with his most screentime rather than his most dynamic and explosive performance.  

    If Glenn gets nominated this year, I hope she doesn’t mess up; she must submit the series finale.  
    If Rose were to be nominated (only in a dream world…) I would hope she wouldn’t think of submitting anything but “I Like Your Chair.”

    Mary Louise Parker and Sofia Vergara really stand out as the worst submitters. Even when Vergara had realy good episodes to send, she always chose something underwhelming.

    Julianna Margulies also made a huge mistake in her first Good Wife season and chose “Threesome”. I believe that had she gone with the pilot, she’d probably have beat Sedgewick (who I believe won by a very thin margin).

    It’s been mentioned recently that 2009 Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy was a pretty bad year for tape submissions, with only Jon Cryer and Rainn Wilson standing out as respectable. The GoldDerby slide show highlighted Kevin Dillon’s episode as particularly bad.

    Can anyone explain what McBrayer, Morgan, Dillon, and Harris did wrong that year?

    ” Threesome” wasn’t that bad of a tape.  It wasn’t a great submission but it wasn’t an all-time worst candidate either.  Sedgwick’s own submission was so baity that it would have overshadowed even the Good Wife pilot had Margulies submitted it.

    I disagree. It wouldn’t be the first time Sedgewick would’ve had a very baity tape and lost. Margulies had the buzz and The Good Wife pilot would have got her more casual viewer votes. It would still be close, but momentum would probably have led Margulies to win. It may not be a bad episode (and I don’t think the thread is intended to be about that), but it’s terrible in terms of strategy.

    “Threesome” really was a poor choice.  As many have said, it is not by any means a bad episode in terms of quality, but it was such a poor strategic choice, as Renaton pointed out. I watched “Threesome” before I became a viewer of The Good Wife, and while I thought it was decent and Marguiles had a few “baity” scenes, it did a major disservice to those who never watched the show before; “Threesome” throws the voter / viewer into the middle of a season-long story with barely any exposition or context, and it makes all of those big scenes much less impactful. Thankfully, she submitted perfectly with “In Sickness,” and won an extremely well-deserved Emmy for it!

    Threesome wasn’t a bad episode, but knowing that she had an emmy winning episode makes the whole Threesome thing feel bad. Well Margulies you could have been a double emmy winner for TGW by now…

    Interesting you say that, because I wonder if she would have won for the second season had she won for the first.  I think “In Sickness” is a better performance / submission than the pilot was, but let’s say Marguiles wins for the first season; would she still have won for the second?  Not that it hasn’t happened before, but I’m not so sure if it would have still been a slam dunk.
