Outstanding Drama Series nominees Emmys 2015

The fields for Outstanding Drama and Comedy Series have expanded to seven shows for the 2015 Emmy Awards, meaning the competition is that much stiffer? So which show do you think should take home the hardware?

The drama slate include perennial nominees “Downton Abbey,” “Game of Thrones” and “House of Cards,” neither of which have won in their multiple years being nominated. “Mad Men” is also a perennial nom, though it took home four Emmys in a row in this category between 2008 and 2011 before “Homeland” (also a 2015 nominee) broke the streak in 2012. “Homeland.”

The newbies to the category include “Better Call Saul,” coming off a Season 1 that critics raved about, and “Orange Is the New Black,” also a critical favorite but that was nominated in the comedy series category a year ago.
