    I don’t know if it counts, by The Good Wife not submitting Hitting the Fan in Writing was unforgivable.

    Diana Rigg, “Game of Thrones”

    She couldn’t possibly win with the material and screentime she had this year, but this episode doesn’t even support the notion that she deserved a nomination.

    Jim Parsons submitted the completely wrong episode. As much as I love him on Big Bang, we will not this year.

    Agreed. That would be my go-to pick.

    Also, while I realize that the series tapes aren’t necessarily as big in deciding winners as the acting ones, I was still very put off by Game of Thrones submitting “Breaker of Chains” and omitting “The Mountain and the Viper”.

    Anna Chlumsky would’ve been better off picking something other than “Detroit”. “Special Relationship” would’ve been a better choice.

    I think Ty Burrell picked pretty horrendously.

    Melissa McCarthy didn’t pick a very strong episode

    I thought Melissa McCarthy’s episode submission was a good one and could pose a threat in the Lead Actress category.  Her scenes in therapy were hilarious and the impact of the last playground scene could help seal the deal.

     

    I did not think Burrell’s choice was horrible.  I can see why he went with that episode due to the awards dinner scene when he was on stage.  I do think that this episode helps Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

    Mayim Bialik, Anna Chlumsky. Jim Parsons, Lena Dunham, and Adam Driver all made terrible submissions I think I don’t see anyone of them winning

    Ik right! He basically just handed the Emmy to Jesse Tyler Ferguson

    I just think knowing McCarthy, she had better episodes. If she didn’t then yikes

    There are a few types of poor submissions.  Some are just plain bad and probably represent a nomination based on name recognition instead of material.  Others may cost someone the win that they could have been competitive for with a different specific episode from the past season.

    Although it was submitted in the pre-nomination phase, I would say that director Michael Trim submitting the season finale of Orange is the New Black instead of its pilot surely cost him the nomination and win.

    Andre Braugher completely screwed up his submission and lost his chance to win.

    I started watching submissions, my first category was Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy and I can say: Adam Driver, Andre Braugher and I have to believe Ty Burrell had better and could’ve done a better job at preventing Ferguson from being helped with his tape. Or as we usually speculate with certain people: maybe he’s trying to help Ferguson with all of this.

    I’m already anticipating adding Mayim Bialik to this list because…why not? It’s the same every year.

    I can’t help but think Burrell is indeed trying to give Ferguson something extra for a shot at a win.
