2014 Emmy Predictions: Best Drama Series

2014 Emmy Predictions: Best Drama Series

Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions through August 25th, when the winners will be announced. 

“True Detective” made the cut, but can it stand up to the big boys where it really counts? The coulda-been miniseries is going up against no easy group of challengers, including the final season of “Breaking Bad’ and the ever-popular “Game of Thrones.” “House of Cards” is no slouch and “Mad Men” has four trophies under its belt. Anything could happen, but we’ll do our best to analyze the trends and see who’s got the edge each week.
