And the Emmy winner is ...

(Continued)

Will win: “House of Cards.” Ambitious politician trumps ambitious drug dealer in Washington-bedazzled Hollywood.

FRAZIER MOORE

Should win: “Breaking Bad.” TV’s best drama has never won!

Will win: “Breaking Bad.” With hysteria building in its final year, it’s going to cook up a win this time.

COMEDY SERIES:

ELBER

Should win: “Louie.” Life can be brutal, but also brutally funny in Louis C.K.’s hands.

Will win: “Modern Family.” It’s comfortably amusing and academy voters like it, they really like it.

MOORE

Should win: “Louie.” This groundbreaking comedy has continued to, well, break ground.

Will win: “Modern Family.” Habits are hard for Emmy to break.

ACTOR, DRAMA SERIES:

ELBER

Should win: Jon Hamm, “Mad Men.” Don Draper finally confronts his pain and what he’s done to others. Hamm’s trophy is even more overdue.

Will win: Kevin Spacey, “House of Cards.” Take that, movies! TV is better than ever, and honoring a visiting big-screen star drives the point home.

MOORE

Should win: Jon Hamm, “Mad Men.” Besides all the other reasons, his Hershey bar meditation clenched it.

Will win: Kevin Spacey, “House of Cards.” High-profile star in a high-profile series on a high-profile new channel.

ACTRESS, DRAMA SERIES:

ELBER

Should win: Kerry Washington, “Scandal.” A powerhouse performance that keeps the madcap series spinning but not out of control.

Will win: Kerry Washington, “Scandal.” Don’t overthink what will be an unprecedented African-American victory; she simply deserves it.

MOORE

Should win: Kerry Washington, “Scandal.” Great work propelling an outrageously compelling show.

Will win: Kerry Washington, “Scandal.” Emmy voters get it, and so will Kerry.

SUPPORTING ACTOR, DRAMA SERIES:

ELBER

Should win: Bobby Cannavale, “Boardwalk Empire.” Of course he can bring a fresh spin to a gangster role; what can’t this actor do?
