BEST TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
BOARDWALK EMPIRE (HBO)
THE GOOD WIFE (CBS)

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
JULIANNA MARGULIES THE GOOD WIFE
ELISABETH MOSS MAD MEN
PIPER PERABO COVERT AFFAIRS
KATEY SAGAL SONS OF ANARCHY
KYRA SEDGWICK THE CLOSER

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
STEVE BUSCEMI BOARDWALK EMPIRE
BRYAN CRANSTON BREAKING BAD
MICHAEL C. HALL DEXTER
JON HAMM MAD MEN
HUGH LAURIE HOUSE
Our vote: Bryan Cranston for Breaking Bad. What a perfect example of how someone who was almost destined to be typecast after Malcolm in the Middle really broke out.
BEST TELEVISION SERIES – COMEDY OR MUSICAL
30 ROCK (NBC)
THE BIG BANG THEORY (CBS)
THE BIG C (SHOWTIME)
MODERN FAMILY (ABC)
NURSE JACKIE (SHOWTIME)
Our vote: Um, why do comedy and musical have to go in the same category? All that aside, 30 Rock, obviously.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES –COMEDY OR MUSICAL
TONI COLLETTE UNITED STATES OF TARA
EDIE FALCO NURSE JACKIE
TINA FEY 30 ROCK
LAURA LINNEY THE BIG C

ALEC BALDWIN 30 ROCK
STEVE CARELL THE OFFICE
THOMAS JANE HUNG
MATTHEW MORRISON GLEE
JIM PARSONS THE BIG BANG THEORY
Our vote: 3O Rock has offered Alec Baldwin the chance to explore a facet of his career we never knew existed. He may be the best thing about the show, second only to Tina Fey and her night cheese.
