Sure, "Lost" may have lost its way after winning the Emmy Award for best drama series for its first season in 2005, but many fans believe it ended well. Now, can it reclaim this category? Two-time winner "Mad Men" is undefeated here. "Dexter," "Big Love," "Breaking Bad" and "Damages" are overdue to win, and there are some scrappy rookies, including "Sons of Anarchy," "Treme" and "The Good Wife," rapping at the door.

Six nominees are projected for this category, but there were seven last year due to statistical closeness between the sixth- and seventh-placed vote-getters.
