Serious drama looms over Emmy's acting races as formidable newcomers such as Timothy Olyphant ("Justified") and Melissa Leo ("Treme") challenge stars who've won the past two years in a row: Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad") and Glenn Close ("Damages"). Last year's supporting drama actress winner, Cherry Jones ( "24"), did not re-enter the race, clearing the way for new blood.
