  1. Bummed they didn’t submit Steve Carell for guest actor, but I fully understand.

    Very excited that “Livin’ the Dream” was submitted. Automatic series classic, and I’m still blown away that it was written by a relative newcomer.

    Rogers/Scanlon 2013 or I burn Utica to the ground.

  2. If the Office doesn’t win at least one Emmy this year, I think I am stopping watching television.

  3. I think it’s so interesting that everyone is being put forward as a supporting actor/actress – just a reminder that it is the entire cast that excels in this show. (That said, I really think Jenna deserves a nomination this year – this was such a big year for her character.)
    And the “best hair design” award – perfect!!

  4. Best of luck to the submitted nominees! The Office was the best. John and Jenna were so amazing as Jim and Pam. They had off the charts chemistry and made Jim and Pam, hands down the best tv couple ever!

  5. Interesting on which episodes they put forward for writing. Not surprising, but interesting.
    And DAMN!!! I was hoping Rainn Wilson would get in for a Lead Actor nomination!!

  6. If Jenna doesn’t at least get nominated this year… I will lose all faith in the Emmy’s. Er, the very little faith that remains.

  7. @10 Couldn’t agree more. She deserves the nomination and the win for her work this year.

  8. No Steve? :(
    So mind-boggling he’s NEVER won for the role of Michael Scott.

  9. Sorry, guys. As much as I wanted Steve to win the Emmy, two lines is not nearly enough for him to be considered in the “guest actor” category.

  10. I agree with everyone that John and Jenna should get nominations and even the win, however I think it should have been for the lead actor or actress category. I want to see Angela and Oscar get supporting nominations, I thought they did a great job this season. Maybe even Phyllis deserves one. The fact that John and Jenna are in the supporting actor category has made it nearly impossible for the brilliant ensemble to even be considered. Also I don’t understand my Steve carell was not nominated as a guest actor?

  11. Hey, if they can give Oscars to Anne Hathaway and Judi Dench for one song and eight minutes of screen time, respectively, then Steve Carell can get an Emmy for the best TWSS ever.

    (But no, I agree. It’s just fun being bitter.)

    [from tanster: lol!]

  12. 15/Mark, the lead actor category is considered to be one of the most competitive. The reality is that Krasinski would have a hard time breaking in there, so putting him in for supporting makes more sense if you want him to win anything. And the reality is that, as much as we all love the rest of the cast, the only ones with a serious chance for nomination are Krasinski, Fischer, and Wilson, and Krasinski and Wilson would need to be submitted in the same category anyway. So I don’t think it really impacts the rest of the cast. Plus, it’s a classy move and in keeping with great ensemble show history to all submit as supporting.

    The SAG was the best way to acknowledge the whole cast, and I’m glad they’ve had success with that.

  13. I love that they submitted “Lice” for hairstyling. ;) My fingers are crossed for everyone!

  14. Does anyone know what episodes each actor submitted for their performance?
