Emmy Picks 2007: Outstanding Drama Series

In anticipation of Sunday’s EMMY Awards, theTVaddict.com crew is proud [or not-so-proud depending on how things turn out] to present our 2007 GUARANTEED EMMY WINNERS [not really guaranteed!]. Check beck regularly throughout the week, as new categories are added. Agree with our picks? disagree completely? Think we take TV a little too seriously! Post your comments below.

Nominees (L to R):Boston Legal, Grey’s Anatomy, Heroes, House, Sopranos

theTVaddict Predicts:

Who I Think Will Win: The Sopranos
For the last time.

Who I HOPE Will Win: The Sopranos
That is until they’re nominated for an Oscar. Give it a few years…

Who Was Snubbed: Friday Night Lights and Dexter
Both shows will get nods next year, unless Emmy Voters find a way to reward The Sopranos again.

Amrie Predicts:

Who I Think Will Win: The Sopranos
This is the year to reward David Chase’s swan song season.

Who I HOPE Will Win: House
Grey’s was lopsided, Heroes is overhyped, Boston Legal had one really solid episode that lead to a surprise nomination. But House is so intriguing. No, it’s not the most amazing show ever, with shocks and twists, and turns, but you don’t always need that to make a show worth watching and rewarding!

Who Was Snubbed: Friday Night Lights, Dexter, The Wire
I’d love to shout from the rooftops that I think Friday Night Lights was, and will probably continue to be, overlooked. Nuanced performances, gritty real-life drama. Amazing stuff. Also, I’d be remiss to forget Dexter or The Wire, two of pay-cable TV’s best offerings in years.

Jenny Predicts:

Who I Think Will Win: The Sopranos
This is its last year. Who would deny the mob?!

Who I HOPE Will Win: House
I love Grey’s, I really do. But while they had several weak episodes and storylines (can you say Gizzie?? Blech.), House NEVER fails to thrill me.

Who Was Snubbed: Veronica Mars, Jericho & Friday Night Lights
Again, don’t ask me to pick just one of those three. My heart broke with the cancellation of the first two and I can’t wait for Jericho’s return! Even though I don’t watch FNL, I know it’s a great show that I should really try and get into.

    WILL: Sopranos or Heroes [double snore]

    SHOULD: Out of the choices given? Grey’s Anatomy.

    SNUBBED: LOST, Battlestar Galactica, Brothers & Sisters, Studio 60… I could go on and on.

    WILL: Sopranos or Grey’s Anatomy

    SHOULD: House, maybe Heroes

    SNUBBED: Jericho

    Don’t watch Sopranos, but the hype is hard to disregard. Grey’s Anatomy also has the hype even though it’s overrated. Boston Legal is one of my favorite shows, so I’m glad it’s nominated. But, it also had an uneven year. Heroes is a refreshing and exciting new show, but House is consistently intriguing, witty, funny, dramatic, and extremely well acted.

    WILL: The Sopranos…come one they are the critics’ favorite. And this is going to be their last win
    SHOULD: House. Best Medical Drama in a long time. Who doesn’t love Hugh Laurie?

  • Josh

    WILL: The Sopranos
    I’m afraid there will be a Sopranos sweep tomorrow night. Never watched one episode.

    SHOULD: Heroes
    I don’t care what people say, this was the most exciting show I watched last season. I’d love to see it get rewarded.

    SNUBBED: Veronica Mars, Brothers & Sisters
    Veronica should have been recognized for three seasons of fantastic television. And for me, Brothers & Sisters was the most heart wrenching show of the season. I’m glad Sally Field and Rachel Griffiths got nominations, but I thought the show should’ve as well.

    Sopranos, please

    Lost without a doubt got snubbed big time. In my opinion it’s one of the best written TV shows of all time.
