This isn't going to make Dick Wolf very happy: For the first time in 12 years, Law & Order failed to score a best drama series nomination. (Its 11-consecutive nods tie the record set by Cheers and M*A*S*H.) Instead, voters gave that coveted fifth slot to CBS's powerhouse forensics thriller CSI, which will compete for top drama honors with Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, 24 and The West Wing. Sadly MIA: Alias, Boomtown, American Dreams and The Shield. Clearly, Academy voters failed to heed our Dream Emmy Ballot.
