Emmy choices could get LOST again

The Emmy's released a list this week of the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards’ top ten vote-getters for outstanding drama series and outstanding comedy series, as voted on by the Television Academy. LOST made it into the top 10. BSG is ignored once again. Lost won for it's first season. Then everyone drifted away because the storyline became too strange and chaotic, etc.

y favorites on the drama list are Mad Men and Lost. I suspect Mad Men will definitely make it into the final nomination as it's about the advertising gig in the 1960s. Since advertising drives the industry, voting members are really drawn to the show. In the comedy category I'm split between my fondness for Pushing Daisies and 30 Rock. The Emmy's has an interesting process in place now to draft a final list of nominees to be announced on July 17.

Here's the top 10 list for drama votes:
  1. Boston Legal (ABC)
  2. Damages (FX)
  3. Dexter (Showtime)
  4. Grey's Anatomy (ABC)
  5. House (Fox)
  6. LOST (ABC)
  7. Mad Men (AMC)
  8. The Tudors (Showtime)
  9. The Wire (HBO)

The top ten comedies are:
  1. Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO)
  2. Entourage (HBO)
  3. Family Guy (Fox)
  4. The Office (NBC)
  5. Pushing Daisies (ABC)
  6. 30 Rock (NBC)
  7. Flight of the Conchords (HBO
  8. Two and a Half Men (CBS)
  9. Ugly Betty (ABC)
  10. Weeds (Showtime)
