The Emmy Episode Submissions: Any Surprises?

The sleuths over at Gold Derby have been tracking down which episodes this year's Emmy nominees have submitted to the judges for consideration. The full list is pretty fascinating, and after reading through, I'm wondering which actors and actresses you think made the right call — and which submissions surprise you.

On the "no surprises" front, I'm not shocked in the least to see Alec Baldwin put "Generalissimo" out as his submission. An episode where he played multiple roles won him an Emmy last year, so why not try the same tactic again? And "Under My Skin" makes perfect sense to me for Hugh Laurie, as that episode let him show off both the best and worst possible sides of his character.

I'm a little more surprised to see Tina Fey submit "Reunion" as her 30 Rock standout, because when I think about her best work this season, I immediately think of one of the Jon Hamm episodes. And while Toni Collette is fantastic in the pilot of United States of Tara, the episodes later in the season show her character(s) in more depth.

Any surprises for you?

OMG The United States of Tara is soooo good. I think the pilot episode is a good choice...it's what got me hooked from Day One. Other than that, I love Big Love, Mad Men, and a few others..but I didn't feel like looking up which episodes were which by their titles. P.S. I think Toni Colette is officially my favorite actress.

the best episode of 30 rock this season was the reunion episode, so not surprised by that one.
