Outstanding drama seriesLeading up to this most welcomed/dreaded day of the year, the biggest question on the minds of trophy-show wonks: Will any drama series be nominated that can loosen four-time winner “Mad Men’s” stranglehold on Emmy’s hottest trophy? It’s a foregone conclusion that AMC’s tony, ‘60s-set Madison Avenue drama will be nominated again this year. Some think Showtime’s espionage drama “Homeland” is most likely to topple “Mad Men” at the Emmys this September, having already been festooned with best drama trophies at the Golden Globe Awards and the Critics’ Choice Television Awards – it even won a Peabody.AMC
