‘Outlander’ Emmy submissions: Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan and 12 other actors among the show’s many ballot entries

The fan-favorite Starz drama “Outlander” is back on the Emmy ballot in the hopes of securing nominations for its sixth season. So which candidates from the show are up for consideration? Scroll down for the list.

Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan lead a parade of 14 actors whose performances will be considered by the television academy. As usual, Balfe’s performance as heroine Claire Fraser is entered into the Best Drama Actress race, where perhaps her recent appearance in the Oscar-winning “Belfast” could help boost her into the top six for the very first time. Heughan is gunning for his first nom for Best Drama Actor as Jamie Fraser. They’re followed by a whopping 10 supporting actors including Sophie Skelton as Claire and Jamie’s daughter Bree. Two guest stars are entered on the ballot: Maria Doyle Kennedy and David Berry, both for the episode “Give Me Liberty.”

As for the episodes submitted in individual achievement categories, the season finale, “I Am Not Alone,” in which Jamie and Claire defend themselves against an attempt to falsely arrest Claire for Malva’s murder, has been entered for its sound editing and sound mixing. The penultimate episode, “Sticks and Stones,” which features Malva’s funeral and Claire’s hallucinations amid the rumors that she’s a murderer, is on the ballot for its directing and cinematography. And the episode before that, “The World Turned Upside Down,” featuring a dysentery epidemic and Malva’s death, may be nominated for writing and picture editing. The fourth episode of the season, “Hour of the Wolf,” which focuses on Ian and Jamie’s relationships to Native American tribes, has been put forward for its costumes and production design.
