Will 'Lost' get a farewell embrace at the Emmys?
"Lost" has a serious shot at winning the same top prize it claimed after its freshman season (2005). Voters like to bestow a farewell hug to milestone TV series – like "The Sopranos" in 2007 — and recent juggernaut "Mad Men" is vulnerable. Lots of voters would like to see a new show win best drama series. In addition to "Lost," "Dexter" and "The Good Wife" pose serious threats too. It's a four-way, squeaker race, as most pundits see it, and "Lost" could certainly emerge the next champ.
But "Lost" has had a bizarre history at the Emmys, as I discussed with producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse when we met up recently at the Hollywood Museum. What do they think of that? What strategy did they employ this year in terms of episode submissions to Emmy judges?
