Emmy Awards 2014: Cast your vote for comedy, drama winners

The winners of the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards will be revealed on Monday night, but until the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences lets us know its picks for this season's best, why not make a few guesses of our own?

We've included a pair of polls below -- one for outstanding comedy series and another for outstanding drama series -- where you can cast your own votes for the shows that you think will go home winners.

In the drama category, the contenders are "Breaking Bad" (AMC), "Downton Abbey" (PBS), "Game of Thrones" (HBO), "House of Cards" (Netflix), "Mad Men" (AMC) and "True Detective" (HBO).

This is the TV academy's last chance to celebrate "Breaking Bad," which wowed critics and viewers alike with a stellar final season solidified its status as one of the greatest dramas of all time. Another possible outcome: the buzzy "True Detective" -- competing as a drama series despite a close-ended storyline that won't continue into the second season -- walking away with the trophy.

On the other side are the comedy nominees -- "The Big Bang Theory" (CBS), "Louie" (FX), "Modern Family" (ABC), "Orange is the New Black" (Netflix), Silicon Valley (HBO) and "Veep" (HBO).

"Modern Family" is aiming for history here -- if it wins on Monday, it will tie "Frasier" for a record five wins in this category. But after nabbing the trophy four years running, some are predicting another show's name will be read come Emmy night. There's some stiff competition from "OITNB" and "Louie," which both boast critical acclaim and their own brands of dark humor. And CBS' own "The Big Bang Theory" could also claim the comedy crown.
