early Emmy news

For the first time, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has announced the top 10 finalists for Best Drama and Best Comedy series. In previous years, lists would leak based on insider information and speculation. This year, the Academy has officially released the list.

“The Tudors” has made it to the top 10 list for Best Drama series for the first time. It was widely known that it did not make the top 10 list last year. This weekend, the top 10 list will be whittled down to just 5 nominees after each episode is viewed by special judges (their rankings are combined with the popular votes already received).

The full list of Emmy nominations will be announced the morning of July 17. Here’s the list of 10 finalists:

TOP 10 DRAMA SERIES FINALISTS
“Boston Legal” (“The Court Supreme”)
“Damages” (Pilot)
“Dexter” (“The Dark Defender”)
“Friday Night Lights” (“Leave No One Behind”)
“Grey’s Anatomy” (“Freedom, Parts 1 and 2″)
“House” (“Frozen”)
“Lost” (“The Constant”)
“Mad Men” (Pilot, “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes”)
“The Tudors” (#205)
“The Wire” (Series finale, “30″)
