Gold Derby editors Tom O’Neil, Chris Beachum and Rob Licuria agree on one thing about the Emmy matchup for Best Drama Series — it’s a fierce bout between three contenders: “Mad Men,” “Boardwalk Empire” and “The Good Wife.”
“Mad Men” has won three times in a row, but can it pull off yet another victory? That’s a rare accomplishment, historically speaking, as O’Neil explains. “Boardwalk Empire” had early momentum in the Emmy derby, as Licuria notes, calling it this year’s “shiny new toy,” but both TV shows aired their original episodes late last year. O’Neil and Licuria agree that “The Good Wife” may be the spoiler, but Beachum poses some cautionary thoughts.
