A look at the 2011 Emmy nominations, with commentary from TV Column writer Lisa de Moraes.
Best drama: “Mad Men.” Lead actor in a drama: Jon Hamm. LISA SAYS: Can any drama series loosen “Mad Men’s” stranglehold on the best-drama Emmy? The best-drama derby is considered the crown jewel of the Emmy competition, and “Mad Men” has won for the past three years. But “Mad Men’s” most recent season was watched by an average of less than 3 million people, which illustrates one of the reasons it’s harder these days for the Emmy trophy show to attract viewers.
