    After a discussion on how popular vote can change winners in categories like acting from the preferential vote, I was wondering if we would see any change in the Drama Series category when the Emmys used a preferential ballot. Till date, Game of Thrones is the only show that has won under both systems.

    I think that Comedy Series is really where a switch to plurality would change things, in favour of dramedies.

    I think Boardwalk Empire would have won Drama Series back in 2011 under the popular vote. It had won the PGA, SAG, DGA, WGA (New Series) and Golden Globe. It had the buzz, the prestige and not to mention Scorsese behind it. It eventually lost to Mad Men S4 (it’s only victory that night). This was Mad Men’s fourth consecutive win. I feel BE was quite polarizing which was visible when it was dropped from the Drama series and Lead Actor only in it’s third season. A show like Mad Men, which was loved and respected by everyone, hence, was able to win on a preferential vote.

    I also think The Sopranos would have won sooner than S5, not sure when.

    I don’t think anything would have changed. I still think Homeland, Breaking Bad and then Game of Thrones would have won.

    Both The Sopranos and Breaking Bad would have more Drama Series Emmys if the popular vote system was it place. The Sopranos probably would’ve won in Season Three and BB would’ve won in Season Four.

    It is interesting because I doubt that they would have reclassified it if it had actually won.

    Yeah OITNB probably would still be in comedy and I imagine it would have done very well there for the next few years, probably would’ve gotten a series nomination in comedy every year until now. It’s harder to guess what would have happened if it won then still moved to drama. I’m guessing it would have done a little bit better coming off a win but still get way less than it would in comedy.
