Los Angeles Times

Supporting Actor in a Drama

Nominees: Andre Braugher, "Men of a Certain Age"; Michael Emerson, "Lost"; Terry O'Quinn, "Lost"; Aaron Paul, "Breaking Bad"; Martin Short, "Damages"; John Slattery, "Mad Men" Who will win: One of the "Lost" guys will win, even though they have each won before in this category. But since I don't watch "Lost" (don't send letters), I had a sit-down session with b's resident Lostie, Marissa Gallo, on this very important topic. She picks Emerson. "His character [Ben Linus] almost did a complete 180 in the final season, going from sociopathic murderer to someone you actually cared about," Marissa said. "Plus, his portrayal of Ben in the 'alternate timeline' made you forget he was ever a bad guy." Then she added, "It's like picking your favorite child." Then she cried, and I slowly backed out of the room. ABC
