    Ehh, I am not sure that Bianco will be able to offer much great insight.  Is predicting Homeland for series allowed?  How about his prediction of Homeland taking all of series, writing, directing, lead actor and lead actress?  When was the last time that a drama did that (Modern Family did it on the comedy side last year)?  His predictions are offline now, by the way.

    Just curious, but does Robert acknowledge the tape system like GoldDerby does? I actually do agree with a number of his placements, but there are a few that stand out as disconcerting:

    Oddly High:
    Don Cheadle (#3)
    Ed O’Neill (#1)
    Mayim Bialik (#2)
          

    Oddly Low:  
    Mad Men (#4)
    Elisabeth Moss (#6)
    Joanne Froggatt (#6)
    Larry David (#6)
    Tina Fey (#7)
    Eric Stonestreet (#5)
    Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Directing (#6)

    Also, to answer thedemonhog’s question, it looks like the last time a drama won the Big Five (Series, Writing, Directing, Lead Actor, Lead Actress) was all the way back in 1981 with Hill Street Blues:

    Series – Hill Street Blues
    Lead Actor – Daniel J. Travanti
    Lead Actress – Barbara Babcock
    Writing – “Hill Street Station” (Pilot)
    Directing – “Hill Street Station” (Pilot)

    It doesn’t seem to me like too many shows have come that close to matching that (as far as final results go). I’m scanning through, and getting even 4 of the awards seems to be an arduous task for many shows.

    “Modern Family” won acting awards in supporting. 

    Amazing to see some diversity with those high placings for “Homeland”.

    The biggest indicator (to me) that Bianco used the submission-system of thought is his high ranking of Kathy Bates.  It’s so obvious which pundits don’t watch episodes, because they rank someone like Bates simply on the prestige of the series, which is why so many have her in dead-last.  Most that watch the episodes will acknowledge that she has a very strong episode.

    In case anybody’s interested, a while back I put together a list of TV series that won Outstanding (Comedy/Drama) Series, Writing, Directing, and at least two non-guest acting awards in a single year since 1960.  Here’s what I came up with (winning actors in parentheses):

    1964 – The Dick Van Dyke Show (Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore)
    1972 – All in the Family (Carroll O’Connor, Jean Stapleton, Sally Struthers)
    1978 – All in the Family (Carroll O’Connor, Jean Stapleton, Rob Reiner)
    1980 – Lou Grant (Ed Asner, Nancy Marchand)
    1981 – Hill Street Blues (Daniel J. Travanti, Barbara Babcock, Michael Conrad)
    1981 – Taxi (Judd Hirsch, Danny DeVito)
    1995 – Frasier (Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce)
    2000 – The West Wing (Richard Schiff, Allison Janney)
    2011 – Modern Family (Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen)

    Not a very long list for 52 years.  The chances of Homeland joining that list this year are very unlikely.

    Bianco isn’t an “Emmy expert”. He’s a critic, and he’s a Homeland and Modern Family fanboy, so these predictions/wishful thinkings aren’t surprising.
