Emmyworthy 2010 - The Dramas

The 2010 Emmy Nominations will be announced on July 8th at 8:40AM E.S.T. and not like I have any sway, but here are my picks for the comedies, and my picks for the dramas (What I would pick, my alternatives, and * are my predictions for those that WILL get nominated.

Of course, my problem is that I'm still catching up with a lot of the critically acclaimed shows, so I'm still behind on MANY of the shows that will probably be announced this Wednesday. I'm still behind on Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Damages, Dexter, Fringe, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Men of a Certain Age and I've never even seen Big Love, Treme, Sons of Anarchy or True Blood yet. Still, at this point, I'd love to see Friday Night Lights take a ton of nominations but that's not going to happen. So my next allegiance is probably to Lost and Breaking Bad (above):

Wait, you've never seen True Blood?!! WHA? Color me shocked.

I think you're right on for the show choices. I'm really fascinated by your lists of alternates - the Emmy's would be a lot more interesting if some of those people were nominated but they won't be unfortunately.
