Following my take on the comedy series nominees, the second installment in my annual multi-part series of Emmy Award predictions and preferences focuses on drama series. It may have been disappointing – even exasperating at times – but no show on television came close to HBO’s mighty Game of Thrones (pictured above) in terms of power, passion, audacity and impact. Like Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica years before it, Thrones didn’t simply enthrall. It showed us everything that TV can currently be, entertaining the hell out of its audience in the process. How can it not dominate?
