For Best Drama, I believe the nominees would be:

Mad Men
True Detective
Game of Thrones
House of Cards

Homeland, for all intents & purposes, could be just a pity nod.

5 for 6 in guesses (which goes to show just how predictable the system is). Figured if it wasn't gonna be Homeland, it'd be Downton. That way, they can say "We have class".

Thank god Headey got in over Clarke. Thrilled for Headey. :clap:

I'm not going to bitch about what I'm unhappy about for a change because this is all very political.
