Emmy Episode Analysis: Can Julia Louis Dreyfus Win Emmy Number 7?

While film struggles to find interesting stories for women, TV seems to revel in it. After watching all eighteen nominated performances, it is no wonder movie stars, such as Viola Davis, have made the move to TV. From murderess hairdressers, high powered lawyers and even the President of the United States, there is no limit to the roles offered to women on television. Not to mention TV gives roles to women of every age, color and sexual orientation. It’s no coincidence diversity has contributed to this golden age of television.

The rules differ a little bit in the lead categories. The comedy and drama series nominees have to choose one episode to be judged on, much like in the supporting races. However, no episode submissions are made for movie/miniseries lead performers. These performances have to be judged based on the entire season. Let’s just say, this led to a great deal of TV watching.
