Emmys 2011: What Show Should Win Outstanding Drama Series?

Can Mad Men make it a four-peat? With more 2011 Emmy nominations (19) than any other series, AMC’s acclaimed drama certainly has a good shot at continuing its domination of the Outstanding Drama Series category. That said, HBO’s freshman series Boardwalk Empire, with 18 nods of its own, is certainly registering on Emmy’s radar. Those Emmy front-runners will face Showtime’s Dexter (up for the fourth straight year), CBS’ The Good Wife (nominated for the second straight year), and first-time combatants Friday Night Lights and Game of Thrones.
