2012 Dream Emmy Ballot: Drama Edition...

As the Emmy race heats up (or for some, just barely kicks into gear), I am once again taking a look at this past year in television and celebrating my own award-worthy performances with Made Possible by Pop Culture's 2012 Dream Emmy Ballot (Drama Edition). Let me preface this by saying I am fully aware of reports that have announced for which categories which talent from which shows are actually submitting. I know American Horror Story is going for the mini-series category; I know Debra Messing is going for Lead Actress in a Drama, while her female co-stars are splitting the vote for Supporting. But what I have compiled below is not based on what is happening; it's solely and selfishly what I wish would happen. That's why they call it a "dream" ballot.

Disclaimer: I have no problem showing my biases. It is my right.
