Exclusive: Emmy episode submissions for Claire Danes, Ty Burrell, Amy Poehler

Gold Derby has exclusively confirmed several of this year’s Emmy Awards episode submissions for top nominees. Today’s list includes defending champ Claire Danes (“Homeland“), past winner Ty Burrell (“Modern Family“), and multiple nominee Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation“).

Once nominations were announced on July 18, each of this year’s nominees in the series, lead, and supporting races must select their best episodes for the Emmy judging panels. Series producers choose six episodes for each show. Actors and actresses submit one episode each.

The following titles were provided to us by networks, studios and/or public relations reps today. The remainder of the episodes will be confirmed throughout this week.

Claire Danes, “Homeland” – episode “Q&A”

Amy Poehler, “Parks and Recreation” – episode “Emergency Response/Leslie and Ben”

Ty Burrell, “Modern Family” – episode “Mistery Date”

Poehler is using a little-known rule to be able to submit two episodes that aired on different dates. Because “Emergency Response” ends with the words “To Be Continued” at the end of the show and the storyline concludes the following week on “Leslie and Ben,” the rulebook says they can be entered together if the nominee chooses.
