Not for Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Price, Westeros or Albuquerque, NM—but for the actors and actresses that inhabit these settings once a week on the small screen.

(For a full list of categories of nominees, click here.)
From posh English estates to lumbering zombies in America's south, dozens of television shows, actors, directors and writers are up for accolades. So, cast a vote for your favorite in the Patch poll below. And if the Emmy committee (or Patch, for that matter) snubbed your darling, leave your impassioned diatribe in the comments section.
