Uh-oh! What episodes should Emmy nominees submit to judges?

July 18, 2009 | 11:52 am

30 Rock Tina Fey

This Tuesday is the deadline for Emmy nominees to declare what sample episode they want judges to see when determining winners. Remember, actors in the series races get only one entry and it better be a doozy. Contenders sink or swim based upon how dumb or shrewd they are when picking episode samples.

I asked our forum posters what they think are the best choices and got lots of interesting reax. In some cases, there's widespread consensus that, for example, last year's champ Tina Fey ("30 Rock") should submit "Reunion" and Toni Collette ("United States of Tara") should go with the pilot, but there's hubbub over whether last year's best actor winner Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock") should opt for the "Reunion" or "Generalissimo" episode.

Most posters think Steve Carell ("The Office") should enter "Stress Relief," but our poster Bazooka Joe thinks Carell should literally go for "Broke."
