2009 Fake Emmy Ballot: Series

Outstanding Drama Series
* Big Love
* Breaking Bad
* Damages
* Dexter
* House
* Lost
* Mad Men

This season of House is one of the better chunks of episodic television in recent memory. It has dealt with themes of death, loss, grief, drug addiction, and complicated romance while still not losing the popcorn-tastic "curmudgeon doctor" stuff that got me hooked in the first place.

Outstanding Comedy Series
* 30 Rock
* Entourage
* Family Guy
* Flight of the Conchords
* How I Met Your Mother
* The Office
* Weeds

30 Rock is going to win, and it probably deserves the trophy. That said, I'm pretending to vote for HIMYM for presenting a great pivot season. Much like the Empire Strikes Back, this season did a great job of bridging the gap between the setup and the conclusion and marked a turning point between a good and a great comedy series.

Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series
* The Colbert Report
* The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
* Late Show with David Letterman
* Real Time with Bill Maher
* Saturday Night Live

I'll go with Colbert over Stewart, mainly because he pronounces "Appalachia" correctly.
