2018 Emmy Awards nominations ballot: See the 160 Best Drama Series hopefuls from A (‘Altered Carbon’) to X (‘The X-Files’)

TV academy voters will get a bit of a break this month when they sit down to cast their 2018 Emmy Awards nominations ballots, This year, they only have to consider 160 shows for Best Drama Series; in 2017, that number was 180. And they no longer have to winnow their choices down to just 10 favorites. As with last year, they are being told to “Vote for as many achievements in this category that you have seen and feel are worthy of a nomination.”

Remember, only seven of the shows below will earn bids for Best Drama Series when the nominations are announced on July 12. While the reigning champ, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” is back with a sophomore season, it faces “Game of Thrones” for the first time. That epic fantasy had won the previous two years but did was off the air last year. With the exception of “Better Call Saul,” the other 2017 nominees are in contention once more.
