The EWwy races have begun, but they are still far from over. For any of you that might be on the fence with your voting choices, we’ve provided a little help below. In the spirit of the Emmys — which bases its nominations on one episode — we’ve rounded up the year’s best episode for all of our nominees. 

By the time you finish watching these episodes, hopefully your decision will be a little easier when you head to vote. Remember: Voting ends Aug. 7, and the winners will be announced on Tuesday, Aug. 11.
