2014 Emmy Preview: The Drama Winners According to TV Addicts

Who is going home with Emmy gold on Monday, August 25? We’ll have to wait until then to know how the Television Academy members have voted, but right now we already know how an online community of TV addicts would vote. The folks over at TVShow Time, a site dedicated to tracking and commenting on shows, has put together an infographic (below) about what their users have to say about the acting races in the drama categories.

For the Leads, the chatter is in favor of newcomers Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) and Matthew McConaughey (True Detective), while Supporting turns toward past winners Maggie Smith (Downton Abbey) and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad).

It seems that Dame Maggie may be in a league of her own regardless of the show she’s on, as the TV addicts look much less kindly on her costars Michelle Dockery, Joanne Froggatt, and Jim Carter.
