Emmy Predictions: Drama Series

The Nominees:

1. Breaking Bad
2. Dexter
3. The Good Wife
4. Lost
5. Mad Men
6. True Blood

Should Win/Will Win: Lost

Commentary: Finally True Blood in its second season starts to get some Emmy love. Unfortuantely, the episode submissions were less than stellar, so a nomination may be all it gets this time around. The other five contenders make this predictions probably the shakiest of them all. Dexter is an incredible show,  but I think it is all about Michael C. Hall, although I am predicting he won't even win, so why should the show? Breaking Bad has its small, but enthusiastic fan base, but I don't think it will be enough to push it over the edge. The next three are the real contenders. The Good Wife, in my opinion, is the big question mark in this race, the real dark horse that could shock all of the pundits and take the prize. Then there were two. I am probably insane for not picking Mad Men to win its third straight Emmy for Drama Series, and it most likely will. But I am hoping, and putting my predicting prowless on the line this once that the Emmys reward, one last time, the most original and fantastic piece of television drama that has sustained us for a couple of years since the departing of the greats like The West Wing and The Sopranos. In its final season, Lost was never better, and maybe, just maybe, a sentimental voting body will give it one last glimpse of glory.
