My dream Emmy ballot

As the song says, "all you have to do is dream." Of course, they should have been more specific with regard to a show or star getting nominated for an Emmy: "All you have to do is dream, and be on a network the Emmy voters actually consider, and do some serious campaigning, too, if you want any of these unlikely candidates to get nominated." But that wouldn't make for a very good sound clip, now would it?

Emmy nominations are announced on July 6th and the show will air on August 27th, but since the TV season is pretty much over, I'm getting a jump on the whole 'dream ballot' thing and posting a few of my totally biased, 100% uninformed opinions. You can tell they're uninformed because 1) I don't recall how many nominees are in each category 2) I'm a little fuzzy on the whole supporting vs. lead distinction and 3) I don't have the luxury of getting the submission tapes, so there are definitely things I'm missing. Nonetheless, here we go:
