Emmy Predictions 2010: Outstanding Drama Series

In anticipation of the upcoming 62nd Annual EMMY Awards (Airing Sunday August 29th at 8PM on NBC) theTVaddict.com is proud [or not-so-proud depending on how things turn out] to once again present our GUARANTEED EMMY WINNERS 2010*

NOMINEES:BREAKING BAD, DEXTER, THE GOOD WIFE, LOST, MAD MEN, TRUE BLOOD

SHOULD WIN: LOST
Despite a controversial ending that still has the internet atwitter, one thing everyone (including those pesky Voters) should recognize is that LOSTerminds Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse stuck to their guns. Which in this crowded television landscape of rampant reboots, re-imaginations and ripped-from-the-headlines shows we currently find ourselves in, is both admirable and award-worthy.


WILL WIN: THE GOOD WIFE
Do you seriously think the Academy is going to pass up such a rarified opportunity to celebrate a big-old-fashioned breakout hit on broadcast television? We think not.

SNUBBED: FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
Full hearts, clear eyes, can’t lose… unless of course you’re a little watched gem-of-a-series that shoots deep in the heart of Texas.

*theTVaddict.com does not guarantee his “winning picks.” Do not, I repeat, Do not bet the house, kids or family pet on them!

    My heart is with Lost, but I'd be fine with Dexter or even Breaking Bad. I don't need an awards show to tell me Lost was great, but it might help Dexter and Breaking Bad gain more audience.

  • My views exactly

  • Excellent point hilsto, although one might argue that because both DEXTER and BREAKING BAD are on cable, audience share isn't nearly as relevant in comparison to a broadcast show like THE GOOD WIFE and/or LOST (assuming of course LOST wasn't already over!)

  • joshemerson

    This is Dexter's year. Seriously, best season of the show ever, with a horrifying and shocking finale that makes the long wait between seasons that much more annoying.

  • Shilo

    As long as it's not Mad Men…again…I'll be alright.

  • Ali

    Lost should definitely win, but I think The Good Wife will win, too.
