"Lost" joined "Mad Men" and "Damages" in the best-drama
series category that also includes "Boston Legal, "Dexter" and
"House."

"John Adams," HBO's prestige historical drama about one of
America's founding fathers, was the overall frontrunner with 23
bids.

"30 Rock," honored as best comedy series last year, was the
top nominee among sitcoms with 17 bids.

"The Wire," the critically acclaimed HBO drama about police
and drug dealers in Baltimore, lost its last shot at ending years
