I think it's not so much that it's personal to individuals, more than it has such a narrow definition of cream of the crop and repeats itself every time.
Basically, it seems like they "discover" a few shows and then stick with them every year, and it's difficult for anything else to break through.
Well, it's not like they aren't willing to drop popular shows once they turn bad. The Emmys dropped 24 and Dexter like a bad habit when those shows went downhill in quality.
The other thing is that some shows have had multiple seasons in a row in which that show really was the best in it's category. The Sopranos, Mad Men, Seinfeld, Fraizer, The West Wing, all come to mind. True enough the Emmys sometimes misses the expiration date by a season, but I no longer begrudge the multiple winners only because they are multiple winners.
