Thanks to the generosity of Starz, we have three lovely flasks to offer as incentives to fans who help Outlander, Sam and Caitriona make it through the nomination round for the People’s Choice Awards.
The nomination round ends at 11:59 pm Eastern this Thursday, October 22. On Tuesday, November 3, the finalists will be announced. We will award one flask via random draw for each successful nomination.
Let’s hit the tape sprinting and show Cait, Sam and the rest of the cast that we are solidly behind them.

This is the most efficient way we’ve found to vote from a computer. Rotating among 3 categories, you’re unlikely to hit speeds that could result in getting your IP banned from voting, but be careful. If you feel like you’re turning into a bot, you might be voting like one. Take a short break occasionally, OK?
Start by copying this link: http://vote.peopleschoice.com/#!/home/all/77/2
Paste it into 5-10 tabs. (Google Chrome browser shown here.)
Click on Outlander, then on “Cast Votes” and go to the next tab. Repeat until you’ve voted Outlander in each tab.
Return to your first tab and you’ll see that the site has most graciously advanced to Sam’s category. Click on Sam Heughan and “Cast Votes.” Move on to each of your tabs in turn.
Return to your first tab and you’ll see Cait’s category. This time, click Caitriona Balfe, “Cast Votes” and close each tab after voting.
Open 5-10 more tabs and repeat, repeat, repeat. I suggest listening to the Outlander soundtracks for inspiration.
Need more inspiration? Imagine what this will look like next year:
Need even more?
Caisteal Dhuni! OK, MacKenzies – Tulach Ard!

The day we’ve been waiting for is tomorrow with the #EmmysForOutlander event kicking off at 10 am Pacific Time. Find the time in your area here: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html
Twitter has been described as walking down the street talking to yourself and hoping that someone is listening, so tomorrow we can trend by talking to each other or we can bring more voices into the conversation.
Our lovely Swedish friends have given us this compilation of reviews and recaps.
Take a few minutes tonight and read some, so you’ll know which writers and publications you’d like to thank for proving that Outlander is indeed Emmy-worthy. Add the hash-tag and tweet. Here are some examples:
@megsokay @decider Thanks for this GIF Gallery of #EmmysForOutlander highlights. http://tinyurl.com/nulw9kn

OR ONE OF THESE:
OR HOW ABOUT AN OUTLANDER TEE:
1. Participate in the Twitter event on June 15 either live or via scheduling.
2. Thank a reviewer or media outlet (don’t forget Access Hollywood, E! News and other TV shows, BTW) for their coverage of Outlander.
3. Be creative, interesting or otherwise compelling enough to get a RETWEET or REPLY from a media outlet, reviewer or journalist.
4. Supply the URL, get a screenshot or copy the reply or retweet and send an e-mail to OutlanderAmbass@gmail.com. The deadline is 10 am PDT on Tuesday, June 16.
5. We will award one prize for every 10 minutes #EmmysForOutlander trends. Winners will be chosen at random. The winner who got a retweet or reply from the account with the most followers will receive first choice of prize and so on until all prizes are awarded.
Those who have brought us Outlander have done their part to earn Emmys. Now it’s our turn to help. #TOTHECAR
As we move into the #EmmysForOutlander effort next Monday, June 15, at 10 am Pacific Time (11 am MDT, 12 noon CDT, 1 pm EDT, 6 pm BST, 7 pm CEST, 8 pm EEST, 1 am AWST, 3 am AEST, 5 am NZST), we want to share a couple of tips. The Twitter account you save could be your own.
1. If you tweet too many handles you do not follow over the course of the effort or if you copy and paste too many tweets, your account could be suspended. This is serious, as that account could be gone for good.
To avoid this – follow entertainment writers and media outlets (websites, magazines, TV shows) which have covered Outlander this year and favorite or reply to a tweet or two before next Monday. Be careful! If you follow too many at once, that can draw the attention of the Twitter Police too, so limit yourself to 10-20 new follows every day this week.
We will have sample tweets for you to copy and paste. You can copy and paste a few, but after that you’ll need to change things up a little by adding a space somewhere in the tweet, moving the handle (the @part) to the end of the tweet, changing “and” to “&” or other little changes.
2. If you do more than 100 tweets in an hour or more than 200 in a couple of hours, you’ll end up in Twitter Jail and be prevented from tweeting for 1-2 hours. It’s Twitter’s way of reminding you to tend to your real life. Consider it a time-out. It has no long-term ramifications, but you won’t be able to help the effort anymore on Monday.
One more note on Twitter safety: If your account is “locked” (your tweets are protected), you will NOT be able to help with the trend effort. Before we start tweeting, click the thumbnail of your profile pic in the upper righthand corner on Twitter, click “Settings,” click “Security and privacy” and uncheck the box next to “Protect my tweets.” You can go back after the effort and check the box to protect your tweets again.
Let’s be careful out there! Caisteal Dhuni! OK, MacKenzies – Tulach Ard!
