Complete list of 2020 Emmys episode submissions revealed [UPDATING]

We’ve been exclusively revealing all 2020 Emmy Awards episode submissions throughout the first days of August. Every title is now listed below. All guest acting titles were indicated on the ballots from early July. The program, lead and supporting contender episodes are courtesy of networks, studios and/or personal reps. The 72nd annual Emmys will be live (yet virtual) September 20 on ABC and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel (“Jimmy Kimmel Live”).

Each drama series and comedy series must submit six episodes for voters to view. Each lead and supporting nominee from dramas and comedies enter one episode each. Leads in the movie/limited categories are viewed for their entire programs, but supportings in that genre also entire a single title each. The complete list for all confirmed submissions is below.
