Battlestar tops TV Guide's Dream Emmy Ballot

As TV Guide's Ausiello explains, "for the first time ever, a blue-ribbon panel will play a key role in determining who gets nominated in the major categories. The goal? To even the playing field between stalwarts like The West Wing and smaller shows like Battlestar Galactica."

TV Guide weighed in with their unofficial choices, though TV Guide critic Matt Roush who is on the Emmy panel has long supported the show, so here's hoping for a real Emmy nod!

TV "Guide's Dream Emmy Ballot

Best Drama - Battlestar Galactica

"Battlestar continues to redefine the sci-fi genre"

Lead Drama Actress - Mary McDonnell
(Laura, Battlestar Galactica)

"McDonnell juggles vulnerability and authority as a cancer-stricken president"

Lead Drama Actor - Edward James Olmos
(Adama, Battlestar Galactica)

"Olmos wowed with a show of restraint as Galactica's embattled captain"
Wish they'd referred to McDonnell's character as "Roslin" rather than "Laura," but glad she made the cut. Alternatively they could have called Olmos's character "Bill" ... lol. And as for Olmos playing Galactica's "captain"... well the less said the better, heh.
