    Season 1 deserved a nomination, Season 4 deserved to win but there was homeland on the way, season 3 deserved to win but there was …I dunno why the hell it didn’t win, for me, far superior than mad men this year.

    I’d say Season two and three definitely should have won.  Season four wouldn’t have been appalling either but Season 5.1 hardly deserves a series nomination.

    Season two should have won series. I wouldn’t have minded a series win for season four or even season three, but that was a weak year.

    Nod for season 1 and then 2, wins for seasons 3 & 4. I’d exchange “Mad Men” and Bryan Cranston winning in 2010 with “Breaking Bad” and Jon Hamm. I’d also give Aaron Paul nomination for season 1 and win for season 2 over 3, switching him and Michael Emerson.

    I think seasons 2, 3, and 4 should have won… with S3 having the smallest margin of victory.

    I’m still cheering for S5.1 to win best drama series because an overdue Emmy for a fantastic show is better than not recognizing it at all.

    I’d give it a series win for Season 2 (S4 is a close second). It’s just the theme through out, the change in Walt, the development in Jesse. I think it’s so masterful. I’d exchange Aaron Paul’s season 4 win with Giancarlo Esposito, even though, tape wise, Paul was better. I’d nominate Anna Gunn wherever she was campaigning for season 2 and season 3, for which her work was emmy worthy. I’d have nominated Dean Norris in Season 3. Vince Gilligan would have won for directing Face Off in season 4, and be fine with ditching Cranston’s 3rd win with Hamm or C Hall. Only seen episode 1 of season 5, so can’t comment on that yet…

    I’ve only seen the first season of The Shield so far, but does anyone think that its final season should have been a contender in 2009, when Breaking Bad was eligible for Season 2? I’m not sure what everyone’s thoughts are on it, but from what I understand, its series finale was immensely acclaimed.

    My drama series nominees in 2009 would have been Breaking Bad, Friday Night Lights, Mad Men, Lost, The Shield and Battlestar Galactica with Breaking Bad as the victor. I didn’t love The Shield’s final season, but it was worthy of a series nod, particularly because of its finale.

    I would have had BB winner Series in 2009 and 2010, and this year, as well.

    2009 Drama Series should’ve been between BB season 2 and The Shield Season 7. And yes, the series finale was amazing (best I’ve ever seen) and had it got into directing and writing, it would have been a deserving winner in both categories.

    Season two and three are the only ones so far that I feel it should have won. Should have been nominated for season one though (fucking Damages…). I don’t know yet how to feel about this year. It’s actually my third favorite season of the show, and I don’t think Mad Men, Homeland, Game Of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey and House Of Cards have been better, so I suppose it would win almost by default. But at the same time, I don’t think this season has reached the highs of seasons two and three, so it will be kinda odd if it wins like this.

    All seasons should have been nominated.  The second season should have won.  The fifth season will be the most deserving of the nominees.

    And the 2009 Emmy for Best Drama Series goes to . . . Breaking Bad (instead of Mad Men)

    It doesn’t deserve to win this year — either lose to Game of Thrones or Homeland.

    While Season 1 introduced us to the off-kilter, creatively-conceived story of Walter White, and was the beginning to what has since become my favorite television show, it was nominated for and won exactly the awards that it deserved. Cranston was the rightful victor for his performance in the pilot … the only nod that S1 deserved and did not receive was Best Writing for the pilot, which stands as one of the best premieres of any TV drama, as far as I’m concerned. Actually, Breaking Bad has never been nominated for Writing at the Emmys, which is an enormous oversight and deserves to be corrected this year, even if Season 5 (screw that 5.1 crap) was its pulpiest effort yet. The show has never been known for its dialogue. But then again, great TV writing is as much about what isn’t said as what is, and the well-placed silences are what give BB its trademark atmosphere.

    Season 2, or at least every from “Better Call Saul,” justified the show’s Series nomination and would’ve justified a win. The show not only managed to find its footing between the mixture of comedy and unflinching violence that made it Must See Television. Looking back, I recognize Season 3’s flaws; at the time, though, it was pretty mind-blowing. Had the producers put “Sunset” and “One Minute” onto the same Emmy tape, the series might’ve won the Emmy. The one-two punch of “Half Measures” and “Full Measure” brought the season to a crashing halt in the best way, making its nomination (and what should’ve been its win) inevitable. And Season 4’s slow-burn first half might have been frustrating for those who watched week-to-week but felt like great stage setting when placed against the heavy-hitting second half. 

    By my count, that’s three Series nods and three wins, with the acting nominations playing out exactly as they should have, save for Anna Gunn submitting as Supporting in Season 3 instead of Lead as she actually submitted. “One Minute” and “Crawl Space” should have landed the show its two Directing wins, and there should be at least four Writing nods at this point. 

    As for how Season 5 is going to be received by voters – whether enthusiastically or timidly – remains to be seen.
