The Emmy Awards are almost here, and now it's time to tell us which show deserves to win outstanding drama series.
The nominees are a varied bunch:
There's fan-favorite football drama Friday Night Lights, which follows the stories unfolding inside a small Texas community; and last year's winner, the '60s advertising saga Mad Men, which stars January Jones as sullen housewife Betty Draper.
Then there's Dexter, the story of America's favorite serial killer; Boardwalk Empire about the life of Nucky Thompson, politician and gangster in Prohibition-era Atlantic City.
The Good Wife, which stars outstanding actress nominee Julianna Margulies, follows one woman's career and love life in the wake of her politician husband's high-profile sex scandal.
And Game of Thrones, HBO's well-received fantasy drama based on the best-selling book series A Song of Fire and Ice, features a cast of feuding characters, including exiled princess Daenerys Targaryen played by Emilia Clarke.
It's going to be a tough race when the 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards air live from Los Angeles's Nokia Theatre on Fox Sept. 18.

Another year, another Emmy snub for Courteney Cox.
Buzz had been building that the Cougar Town actress, 47, might earn her first Emmy nomination this year. But she was left off the list of nominees Thursday – one of several notable omissions.
Other actors who didn't feel the love from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences this year: Kyra Sedgwick of The Closer, the Emmy winner in 2010; Sean Bean of Game of Thrones; Joel McHale of Community; and Lea Michele of Glee.
Tell us: Which of these actors deserved a nomination the most? (Or leave your own choice in the comments below.)

Will the Emmys get Mad, as in Men – or will they Rock, as in 30? Or will they fall for a brand new Game of Thrones?
All will be revealed in two months – Glee star Jane Lynch, a supporting actress in a comedy series nominee, will host the 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards from Los Angeles's Nokia Theatre live on Fox Sept. 18 – but for now, the show to beat is AMC's '60s drama about advertising, Mad Men, which led the nominations, with 19. Game of Thrones received 13.
