If "Lost" can win, what's stopping "Game of Thrones"? -Break- Will Season 5 be Emmy winner for 'Game of Thrones' as it was for 'Breaking Bad'? Arguably, "Game of Thrones" has even more support in the TV academy than "Lost" ever did. "GoT" has been nominated for the top Drama Series prize four times in a row, while the latter was unceremoniously snubbed following its triumphant Emmy win. ("Lost" returned to the Dra...' »
