    Seeing as this is an election year in the US, politics has taken a front seat in many categories at this year’s Emmys. “Game Change” is poised to clean up in many of the movie/miniseries races, plus you’ve got the triple threat “Daily Show”, “Colbert Report” and “Real Time” in the Variety categories, not to mention “SNL’s” election coverage.

    Even in drama and comedy, politics is seeping through. Amy Poehler ran for office in “Parks and Recreation” and Steve Buscemi lorded over the Atlantic City masses as an elected official.

    Can you think of more examples from this year’s Emmy derby?

    Lead Actress in a Comedy Series seems poised to come down to two political series: Amy Poehler in “Parks and Recreation” and Julia Louis-Dreyfus playing the Vice President of the United States in “Veep.”

    This example is fictional politics, but Peter Dinklage on “Game of Thrones” had to deal all sorts of political backstabbing and behind-the-scenes double-dealing as the Hand of the King (the second in command) in Westeros (the fictional kingdom in which GoT is set).

    Julia Louis Dreyfus for playing Sarah Palin…I mean, Vice President Meyer in Veep.

    SNL has a lot of Republican primary. They ignore Obama.

    Nicholas Brody in Homeland is also involved in politics.
