Feel left out? Want Emmy DVD screeners? Buy 'em on EBay!

One of the easiest ways to track Emmy campaigns is by doing a search for words "Emmy" or "Emmys" at EBay. The "For Your Consideration" DVDs pop up there immediately after being shipped to TV academy members. We must wonder: Do members even bother to watch them first?

"Some of the sellers choose to list the entire sets while others split them up and sell each show or movie individually," notes our forums moderator Chris "Boomer" Beachum, who monitors this phenom closely every year.

One seller recently offered the whole Turner campaign box (HERE). Another put up for sale just "The Closer" disk HERE.

The HBO box was ripped up and DVDs sold individually. HERE is the "Entourage" DVD. HERE is the disk for miniseries "Five Days."
