Sci-Fi & Fantasy at Emmy Awards: Who's Won, Who's Been Fracked

From 'Buffy' to 'Battlestar,' how science fiction, fantasy and other genre-fan favorites have fared

'Lost'

Genre television gained sudden, massive visibility when everyone in America got hooked on Abrams and company's trippy castaway thriller, set on an island where anything from time travel to morality-judging smoke monsters could and would happen. Lost is the first and (to date) only sci-fi or fantasy show to ever win for outstanding drama series — in its first season, no less. In addition to more than 20 nominations between 2005 and 2010, Lost also nabbed supporting actor awards for Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson, plus a directing accolade for its memorable two-parter pilot.
