Nomination Status: Probably worthy of a Top 6 slot, but unlikely to get it.
In Its Favor: "Treme" arrived with an exceptional pedigree and, after slowly working its way into things, lived up to its potential by closing with a strong stretch of episodes. A number of co-stars, including John Goodman and Khandi Alexander are expected to be contenders for nomination slots at the very least. Maybe if "Treme" also breaks into some technical categories -- cinematography, music, etc -- it might have a chance?
Working Against It: Alas, it probably won't. Emmy voters probably won't feel like they got enough bang for their "Treme" buck. After all, what happened in "Treme" other than a saga of life, death, music and food set against a tapestry of one of the world's great cities?
