Best Drama Series
Nominees:Breaking Bad—WINNERDownton AbbeyGame of ThronesHouse of CardsMad MenTrue Detective Will Win: Breaking BadTrue Detective might be the buzziest show, but the ending was polarizing, and a recent plagiarism controversy could hurt its chances. Plus, it’s hard to beat the near-universal love for Bad, which finally won its first series Emmy last year and will never get that chance again. Should Win: Breaking Bad Where to start? The acting was so good that some fans were still rooting for a certain child-poisoning, nursing-home-bombing, baby-smuggling meth dealer right up until the very last minute. The storytelling was so good that it tied up some ends that you might not remember being loose. (Walt’s lost khakis, found!) And the finale was so hugely satisfying, it proved that Breaking Bad isn’t just one of the year’s best dramas—it’s one of the greatest dramas of all time. —Melissa Maerz
