Dream Emmy Ballot time!

It’s that time of year again: Time for the Emmy nominations! I actually have absolutely no faith that the best television show or actors and actresses will win, but it can still be fun to work up a dream ballot, right? Besides, this is the last year that I can march with my sign and scream at the top of my lungs: ‘BATTLESTAR GALACTICA! MARY MCDONNELL! EDWARD JAMES OLMOS!’, and while I would never ever expect all three to win, the show winning would still get the cast on stage and woah, I would be a totally happy camper. So, without further ado, my dream ballot!
