Pssst! Hey, Emmy nominees: Submit these episodes!

July 20, 2009 |  2:53 pm

Tuesday, July 21, is the deadline for actors nominated for their performances in a drama or comedy series to submit a sample episode to be evaluated by Emmy judges. Hey, don't worry, contenders! Our forum posters have made the selections for you! After I created a forum thread inviting everybody's views, our posters Isokolar and Bazooka Joe sifted through all of the suggestions and singled out the most popular, which are listed below.
