Final, complete list of episodes to be viewed by Emmy judges

September 17, 2009 |  1:54 pm

Finally, we've learned the title of Tony Shalhoub's Emmy episode ("Mr. Monk and the Miracle"), so that means we now know what sample episodes have been submitted to judges by all nominees for best comedy and drama series plus lead and supporting actor and actress. Judges will view those samples on DVDs between Aug. 10 and 21, then submit their ballots along with signed affidavits attesting that they viewed all episode samples required.

Between 4,000 and 5,000 members of the 14,000 members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences participate in this final stage of voting to determine winners. Usually, voters take on one or two categories, but they may participate in as many as four total. About 50 to 100 voters determine the winner of, say, comedy actor; 150 to 250 decide the race for drama series. Voting is done by peer group. Nominees for acting in series submit one sample episode. Contenders for comedy or drama series submit six divided into three pairs that are distributed randomly to voters. Winners will be unveiled on Sept. 20 during the CBS telecast.
