Emmys 2011: Zap2it readers pick Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler, 'Friday Night Lights' and more

jon-hamm-mad-men-s4-320.jpgOur readers are certainly passionate about their TV, and over the last couple of months, you showed that passion with your votes in our weekly Emmy reader polls.

And, while voting will stay open right until the Emmycast starts, the results to this point show that, while some races are as close to the readers as the experts think they are, others are more clear-cut.

We learned a few things: 1) That people are sick of watching "Mad Men" win outstanding drama every year and are really rooting for "Friday Night Lights"; 2) Andre Braugher and Chris Colfer have a lot of enthusiastic fans; 3) Amy Poehler's performance in "Parks and Recreation" got more attention than the ratings would reflect; and 4) Archie Panjabi and Jane Lynch should defend their supporting titles from last year.

Oh, and we also learned that Hugh Laurie has a lot of passionate fans. Unfortunately, Jon Hamm has a few more, at least among those who like to vote in online polls.
