The Ads to walk down the red carpet at this year’s Emmy Awards


The announcement of the 2011 Emmy nominations have given us six competitors under the category of Outstanding Commercial who seem to have all that it takes to score. From celebrity appearances, polar bears, babies, Indian flea markets, to even Isaiah Mustafa wearing nothing but a towel, it looks as if the choice will be pretty difficult. Kudos to the brands who made the list- McDonald's, Chrysler, Subaru, Nissan, Old Spice and American Express- and especially to agencies TBWA and Wieden+Kennedy, as well as Ogilvy and Carmichael Lynch for their outstanding work and nominations.

I am, however, surprised to see that the Super Bowl smash hit-  Volkswagen's "The Force"-  didn't make the cut... but nevertheless, here are the nominees!


Title: "Baby"
Agency: TBWA\Chiat\Day New York


Chrysler 200
Title: "Born on Fire"
Agency: Wieden+Kennedy


Title: "Baby Driver"
Agency: Carmichael Lynch


Nissan LEAF
Title: "Polar Bear"
Agency: TBWA\Chiat\Day


Old Spice Body Wash
Title: "Questions"
Agency: Wieden+Kennedy


American Express
Title: "Conan"
Agency: Ogilvy New York


Who will take home this year's Emmy? It's only a matter of time until we find out. But for now, let us know through your comments who you think will be the big winner....

    Wow! Nissan’s comercial is heartbreaking! I loved it! It’s a different way of approaching the issue of global warming and how we can help. Very emotive…
    McDonald’s is way too cute!!
    Subaru’s commercial is just as I imagine my dad when he was giving me the keys! jajaja…very realistic.
    Really think Old Spice and American Express’ commercials aren’t good at all! Can’t believe they are categorized as better than Volkswagen’s “The Force”. “The Force” is great!!!!!
    Good article!
