Revealed: Emmy episodes chosen by Miley Cyrus, Christina Applegate, Tina Fey, those wacky 'Desperate Housewives' gals plus others

When the first round of Emmy voting ends on June 20, the top 10 vote-getters for best comedy actress will enter round two. That's when judges will evaluate an episode submitted by contenders as a sample of their best work from the past TV season. Accountants will then combine judges' scores with results of the original popular vote of members of the TV academy's acting branch, mix them up on a 50/50 basis, and, presto, they'll arrive at the five final nominees to be announced on July 17.

Here, below, are the episodes chosen by these contenders. Are these brilliant selections or wacky ones? Pipe in with your views by clicking on the "comments" link below. If you'd like to read the reax of our forums posters, CLICK HERE!
