    I know we don’t even know what episodes they’ll submit, but if you were compiling the nominee list for the ceremony, what clips would you choose to best showcase each actors’ work? Here are some of my thoughts.

    (For the comedy performers, many have a lot of great dramatic moments, but I wanted to choose their funny scenes because that’s usually what they show at the ceremony.)

    COMEDY
    Gillian Anderson – singing the song in front of the whole student body
    Christina Applegate – “These girls look like they might kill themselves, maybe they want to get a nice jig in before they jump off the bridge.”
    Alex Borstein – the pool scene
    Rachel Brosnahan – any standup scene
    Linda Cardellini – “I would, but I’m seeing someone now.”
    Annie Murphy – when she shows David the wedding dress she’s wearing
    Catherine O’Hara – the closet scene
    Issa Rae – any mirror rap scene
    Michael Zegen – the divorce court scene where he talks about cheating on Midge

    DRAMA
    Jennifer Aniston – crying in her trailer in the fire episode
    Millie Bobby Brown – reading Hopper’s letter
    Helena Bonham Carter – “Who’s number one?
    Olivia Colman – the single tear at the end of “Aberfan”
    Jodie Comer – crying on the train
    Laura Dern – “I WILL NOT NOT BE RICH!”
    Julia Garner – any line telling off someone else
    Nicole Kidman – the witness stand at court
    Zoë Kravitz – talking to her mom in the coma
    Laura Linney – calling Marty from the car at the end of “Fire Pink”
    Janet McTeer – defending her daughter from Ben
    Tobias Menzies – his “Moondust” monologue
    Josh O’Connor – telling off Elizabeth at the end of “Tywysog Cymru”
    Tom Pelphrey – the cab monologue
    Meryl Streep – the witness stand at court
    Reese Witherspoon – the Rainbow Connection monologue
    Shailene Woodley – telling Ziggy the truth

    LIMITED
    Uzo Aduba – the monologue to her husband
    Cate Blanchett – the phone call with Reagan
    Rose Byrne – celebrating at the convention
    Kaitlyn Dever – the interrogation
    Regina King – the “ooh!” after Smart’s monologue
    Ari Graynor – “CITE THE CASE”
    Allison Janney – talking to her family after being fired
    Margo Martindale – being fired
    Sarah Paulson – leaving Phyllis behind at the end
    Jean Smart – on the phone with Dr. Manhattan
    Tracey Ullman – the debate
    Reese Witherspoon – “YES YOU ARE!”

    Drama:
    Viola Davis – “Who I am is a 53-year-old woman from Memphis, Tennessee…”
    Cicely Tyson – This won’t be her episode, but the scene in the finale, in which she tells Annalise to “show up”

    Laura Linney – The car scene or Wendy yelling at Ben
    Julia Garner – Her heart-to-heart with Wyatt after being released from the hospital
    Tom Pelphrey – The cab monologue
    Janet McTeer – “Enough! Get Out!”
    Jason Bateman – I have no idea

    Nicole Kidman – Her scene on the stand
    Laura Dern – “Get the f*ck out of my car” (which they would never show due to swearing)
    Meryl Streep – Her scene on the stand
    Reese Witherspoon – Either her yelling at her daughter because of college or her emotional climate change speech

    Elisabeth Moss – Either the scene in which she points the gun at Kiki and then breaks down or where she takes control from Commander Lawrence
    Yvonne Strahovski – Serena’s reunion with Baby Nichole or the scene in which she breaks down afterwards back in the chamber
    Ann Dowd – Where Aunt Lydia lashes out at Janine
    Bradley Whitford – “Do not tell me how to speak to MY WIFE!”
    Alexis Bledel – The scene in which she reads the story to her son
    Julie Dretzin – Practically any scene she had
    Christopher Meloni – The moment right before June kills him
    O-T Fagbenle – Either the scene in which he receives June’s phone call or his look in the finale when he hopes for Hannah to be among the children

    I agree with these, especially The Handmaid’s Tale scenes. Though I think Ozark should use the following:

    Linney – Wendy yelling at Ben at the rest stop, because it’s so well contained without need for prior context. (“Who were you talking to? … Are you trying to get yourself killed? Are you trying to kill my family? … If she doesn’t get what she wants, she will kill my children…”), and could even include the phone call with Marty if a cut is allowed.

    McTeer – Helen getting waterboarded, because those are dramatic stakes that can also be self-contained

    Garner – Ruth upset in the hospital when it’s clear the Byrdes won’t punish Frank Jr. (“If this were Charlotte…”/”I’ll kill him myself.”)

    Pelphrey – That cab ride is amazing, but will be so dang difficult to cut an excerpt for the time allotted. The same scene for Linney at the truck stop would for Pelphrey when Ben breaks down in the car. (“Nashville. I still know a few people there…”)
