Emmy Nominations: Which Drama Series Deserves an Award?

Posted on

The Emmy Awards are almost here, and now it’s time to tell us which show deserves to win outstanding drama series.

The nominees are a varied bunch:

There’s fan-favorite football drama Friday Night Lights, which follows the stories unfolding inside a small Texas community; and last year’s winner, the ’60s advertising saga Mad Men, which stars January Jones as sullen housewife Betty Draper.

Then there’s Dexter, the story of America’s favorite serial killer; Boardwalk Empire about the life of Nucky Thompson, politician and gangster in Prohibition-era Atlantic City.

The Good Wife, which stars outstanding actress nominee Julianna Margulies, follows one woman’s career and love life in the wake of her politician husband’s high-profile sex scandal.

And Game of Thrones, HBO’s well-received fantasy drama based on the best-selling book series A Song of Fire and Ice, features a cast of feuding characters, including exiled princess Daenerys Targaryen played by Emilia Clarke.

It’s going to be a tough race when the 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards air live from Los Angeles’s Nokia Theatre on Fox Sept. 18.
