Finally! Your official Emmy episode cheat sheet!

July 24, 2007 |  9:06 pm

Sopranos3Lorraine Bracco fans can come in off the window ledge. She really does have hope to win an Emmy in the final season of "The Sopranos"! Turns out she submitted "The Blue Comet" episode to Emmy judges, not "The Second Coming," as initially planned.

There's been a lot of confusion over Emmy episode selection. The reason: The TV academy had a series of deadlines for episode declaration — the first back in April, more than a whole month before the TV season was over and Emmy eligibility ended. Contenders could switch their episode later, but the academy wanted to get an early head start on record-keeping. However, sometimes networks or celeb reps forgot to update The Envelope about later switcheroos, like Bracco's.

Well, finally, hooray, ATAS gave us the official, final list of episode entries. These are the acting samples to be evaluated by voters screening DVDs at home while deciding who wins in each category. These submissions are crucial to know when trying to predict ultimate winners. Note: No changes were permitted after episode declarations were made at the end of May. Initially, ATAS said contenders could switch after nominations were announced, but the academy ended up having the change of heart. Too complicated, no doubt.

Our thanks to ATAS for providing The Envelope with this info:
