Emmy voting is nearly complete. Over the week, voters will be checking off names and shows they think are worthy of getting a nomination come July 14. We here at have a few picks in mind ourselves. Next up: our dream ballot for Best Lead Actress in a Drama:

Emmys:'s picks for supporting actor in a drama

Connie Britton, Friday Night Lights

Britton (and Kyle Chandler) already did the hard work last year — finally breaking into the Emmy race — so they should be able to maintain their spots in their respective categories. Plus, it's the last time Britton can be recognized for her lovely and realistic portrayal of Mrs. Coach, who calls all the plays in the Taylor household. Their final moments, when Coach decides they will move to Philadelphia so his wife can follow her dream, was pitch-perfect and had us reaching for the Kleenex.Lauren Graham, Parenthood Graham was snubbed during Gilmore Girls' seven-year run and we hope that doesn't happen with Parenthood since her work is just as good — if not better — as her Girls effort. Sarah Braverman endured a topsy-turvy year, between raising her teens, writing her play and facing her ex-husband — all of which was relayed with remarkable relatability, likability and versatility by Graham. There are not a lot of people out there who can make us laugh and cry in the same minute.

Emmys:'s picks for supporting actress in a drama

Julianna Margulies, The Good WifeMargulies, an Emmy winner for ER, was the overwhelming favorite last year, but lost to The Closer's Kyra Sedgwick. Perhaps that was a good thing since she has even more meaty and winning tapes this year with her devastating breakdown following the Peter-Kalinda reveal. Margulies' controlled performance has always been award-worthy, but it was her complete loss of control and her new sense of empowerment that was really show-stopping.Elisabeth Moss, Mad MenThe category-jumper extraordinaire is re-entering the lead race after going supporting last year — and is seemingly the one to beat. Why? "The Suitcase." The exceptional hour, which focused almost exclusively on Peggy and Don, brought out transcendent performances from Moss and Jon Hamm, and ideally should finally nab the drama its first acting win(s).

Emmys:'s picks for best comedy series

Katey Sagal, Sons of AnarchyOne of the more egregious snubs last year, Sagal offered inspired work opposite Hal Holbrook this season in the overlooked motorcycle drama. She was the surprise Golden Globe winner in January, so there's some momentum on her side. Besides, does the academy really want to hear another earful from Kurt Sutter?Anna Torv, FringeWe've lost count of how many versions of Olivia that Torv played in Season 3 alone, but she deserves an Emmy for each one of them (how 'bout that Leonard Nimoy?). What could have certainly been confusing and audience-hemorrhaging was fascinating and compelling, as Torv carefully detailed each one with differences that were subtle, but also very real.Who would you like to see nominated?
