Emmy Predictions: Best Drama Series
Will Win - Mad Men Should Win - The Good Wife or Friday Night Lights Could Win - Boardwalk Empire
Commentary - There is one thing I know, Dexter will not win this award. I don't think Game of Thrones will either, as it lost too many easy Creative awards last weekend. So that leaves four, and all of them could potentially get it. The Good Wife had a great Season 2, but it missed some key directing/writing nods, and I wonder if it has a lot of support outside of the acting branch. Friday Night Lights finally got a nomination for its last season, and if sentiment is high then they definitely have a chance, particularly with that final episode which could melt the Grinch's heart. After last week's Creative Arts Emmys, Boardwalk Empire has put itself in striking distance of Mad Men, plus it will probably take the Directing award Sunday, which plays well to its chances. But then again Mad Men has never done that well at the Creative Arts ceremony, and although Boardwalk Empire is its biggest challenger ever, I don't know if it can pull it off. It will be a close one, but I am sticking with Mad Men until the envelope is open.
