Emmy entries: 'Tudors' (final), 'Brotherhood,' 'L-Word'

April 26, 2008 |  6:41 pm

That fickle-hearted, bed-hopping stud Henry VIII just changed his Emmy episode again! But this time he swears — with all the sincerity he musters each time he takes a new wife — that he'll remain devoted to this one: episode 209. In it, he dumps Anne Boleyn, whips up a witch hunt against her and gets all a-giddy over Jane Seymour. That's sure to endear him to Emmy voters, right? It airs near the end of May — right at the tail end of Emmy eligibility period.
