Emmy Ballots – Who Would You Nominate?

The Emmy Organization have posted their ballots for nominations. This is the first step in the process to becoming an Emmy winner. The ballots must be returned by June 24th and the nominees will be announced on July 14th. I thought we could take a look at some of the American Idol submissions as a launching point.
