- Tim Gunn is now co-submitted with Heidi Klum as "hosts" of Project Runway. (Odd because the 4 "hosts" of The Taste opted for separate eligibility.)
- The Thick of It is apparently Emmy eligible this year, which could throw some surprises into the mix. (As is Orphan Black, which could shake up the lead actress in a drama race.)
- Matthew Morrison continues to pretend that he is a "lead" on Glee.
- Somewhat surprisingly, Last Resort was submitted as a "drama series," not a mini-series, which places Andre Braugher in a much tougher field (though Michael Douglas seems a veritable lock for Behind the Candelabra).
- Kaley Cuoco drops back to supporting actress.
- Damon and Douglas are both running in lead for Behind the Candelabra.
- Sutton Foster is submitted as a lead for Bunheads, though no one else was submitted, even if ABC Family has multiple Pretty Little Liars on the list. (Other hourlongs running as comedies? Hart of Dixie and The Carrie Diaries)
- Interestingly, everyone from Smash is submitted, but all in the supporting categories. In contrast, Game of Thrones offers limited choices, all supporting--Coster-Waldau, Dinklage, Harrington, Clarke, Dormer, Fairley, Headey. (Ciaran Hinds and Diana Riggs are guests.)
- Some ridiculous ones--Katie Cassidy, lead actress in a drama for Arrow, Tracy Spiradakos, lead actress in a drama for Revolution, Matthew Moy, supporting actor in a comedy for Two Broke Girls, Austin Basis, outstanding supporting actor for Beauty and the Beast. Sadly, no one from Gossip Girl even bothered submitting.
- For writing--Arrested Development opted to submit only the finale, Community submitted the comic book, puppet, and body switch episodes, HIMYM submitted Robin Sparkles and the time travel episode, Game of Thrones submitted only "Rains of Castamere," Newsroom submitted only the pilot.
