Project Runway Insider - Emmy Entry

Clockwise from top left: Santino's winning design from Road to Runway; Chloe's winning design from Clothes Off Your Back; Nick's winning design from All Dolled Up; Daniel's winning design from Garden Party; Zulema's winning design from On Thin Ice; Santino's winning design from Social Scene
Can you guess which episode of Project Runway was sent to the Emmy nominating committee? Was it:

Road to Runway
Clothes Off Your Back
All Dolled Up (Barbie Challenge)
Social Scene (Nicky Hilton Challenge)
On Thin Ice (Sasha Cohen Challenge)
Garden Party (aka Flower Power)

Tell us which show you think was sent and which one should have been sent. Tell us why.

Yes, we know the answer.

I'll go with Clothes Off Your Back for many reasons.
1. Obviously Andrae's meltdown.
2. We really got to see how the show works - the challenges and the time constraints and the personalities of the designers (Santino "they just didn't want give me 2 in a row" etc.)
3. Diane Von Furstenberg judged. Enough said lol.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Social Scene...a lot happened in the episode with the party, the walk off, Nicky Hilton, Marla making a knockoff etc...

In my opinion though, the Inspiration show was one of the best. It had angst, humor, the "mother f***ing walkoff" and really amazing designs...

I agree with AJ about the Social Scene show. Not only do we see the designers at work we also get to see them at play...and of course there is also the additional element of designing for a socialite client. But my first choice would have been Inspiration.

I'm pretty much at sea trying to guess what the producers and Emmy voters consider Emmy-worthy qualities in an episode. When did all the singing take place and which episode was Timpression-heavy? When was it that Tim confronted Santino with "Where's Andrae? I want to hear more!"? Was it the ice-skating challenge? Since that combines conflict with humor, maybe Emmy voters would appreciate that.

I guess my favorite episodes were COYB and Inspiration, of which the latter could've been made even better if Andrae had won. Since Inspiration isn't in the running in this guessing game, I'll say COYB. It was a challenge that was unexpected and required a certain level of personal sacrifice as well as designing and technical prowess.

I think the Garden Party episode.
It's a classic with Santino's Tim Gunn impersonations.

Right, now I remember! Santino was working on the mesh and shiny leaves as Tim was talking to him!

I'm picking Flower Power because:

1. The challenge of making a dress out of flowers and those materials vs fabrics was really great. A lot of good exposure to the design process here, I thought.

2. The humor in this episode-the Timpressions, Heidi's houseplant comment and Kara's "I'd rather be smoking it right now"!

3. The five left in this episode were the fan favorites, for the most part and were a large enough group to show the range of the show but small enough to be able to enjoy the personalities and see more of each person, which in the beginning episodes are kind of rushed.

Sorry this turned into a book!

I have to go with garden party too. It was so unique. Even at work, it was the breakroom "talk of the day."

I am going to pick the barbie challenge. Not sure why, but thats the one that jumped at me of the choices.

I'll just say that the Barbie episode was my personal favorite. The designs were fun and whimsical. The sight of the designers holding their dolls during the runway judging - priceless! And we had the famous "Barefoot Appalachian L'il Abner Barbie" quote from Michael Kors.

This is a toughie. I have 2 favs, all dolled up cause Nick is awesome, and COYB cause those outfits were so original and creative. Oh, and I liked Garden Party too and Inspiration because of Andrae. What the heck, all those episodes are Emmy worthy!

I have a feeling it will be the Clothes Off Your Back Episode. But I would love for it to have been the Garden Party/Flower Power challenge. I think it was the best all-around. Though the Social Scene was great too. Can you hear the indecisiveness in my voice. How can a PR fan pick a 'best' episode? I am sure it would be much easier to pick a worst episode.

I'm going with Garden Party for the same reasons as praddicted mentioned (that wasn't a book-it was a thorough opinion!)
It's also a personal favorite because there was ALOT of Daniel airtime--including his "coming out" story.
Have I mentioned that I MET Daniel?
Just checking... :)

garden party. because its my favorite and it is funny

Garden Party, becasue it showed the deesigning process from a new perspective. Plus, Daniel's coming out and Timpressions, what more can yo asm for?

Definitely the Inspiration show. The MFing Walkoff changed the path of the entire rest of the series. Nothing that happened through the whole series had the effect that this one thing did.

And just the Idea of making a dress inspired by dirty gutter water is award worthy in and of itself. ;D

What happened to Andrae????

I hope it's not Social Scene.

Nicky Hilton was painful to watch. And I think PR should do everything they can do differentiate their show from the Simple Life.

If it's not Garden Party (I think it is), it should be

I personally think that the Garden Party will be the entry sent in. It is one of the more specific, more complex challenges (and therefore, a little more interesting). It had lots of humor in the episode, there was a little tension as well with the model walk-off. It was a good balance.

In general, I think a good choice would have been the COYB challenge because I thought it was one of the most interesting challenges, and showed the designer's creativity to the fullest. I also love Chloe, so it was great to see her win.

I'm betting Barbie, too. It's the most accessible to non-addicts. I can't remember if santino misbehaved in that one or not.

I'll go with Trish on this one.. COYB .. its not my favorite of all of them (i love them all really), but for the reasons listed I would guess that would be the one. To see people have to shred their very own clothing to prove their dedication is pretty amazing.

I love the My Scene episode, I just love the dollies getting involved- maybe next season it will be the Bratz LOL. I also love the flower challenge because Tim was really cute in it I love the Flotsam and Jetsum!
