I'm surprised nobody thought Breaking Bad should win Best Drama Series. Season 3 was probably one of the best on television, and the only tight competitor should've been the finale of Lost. But I digress. Maybe the categories of Best Drama and Best Actor will both be a repeat of the past 2 years. Bryan Cranston definitely deserves it.

Sad to see nobody has any hope for Breaking Bad-it was easily my favorite drama of the season. And even though I don’t think it will win, (I think Mad Men will repeat) I don’t think it’s as bad as being number 5 out of the 6.
