Interesting Information about the Emmy Choreographer Nominations, Derek Hough and Mandy Moore

I thought this was a VERY interesting read, considering all the discussion about DWTS and the Emmy’s, who should have been nominated and if they were even submitted. There was some speculation in some quarters that Maks wasn’t submitted, or Sharna wasn’t submitted, and so on.  I think it’s safe to say, based on this, that ALL the DWTS choreographers had something submitted – Mandy Moore certainly did, and not just from SYTYCD.  This is from Variety – click the link to read the whole thing (emphasis mine).

As they prepared to celebrate, this year’s Emmy nominated choreographers remarked at the growth in interest to see dance on television, noting that over 70 submissions from reality and scripted series went in to bid for five nominations.

“It’s still weird,” said Mandy Moore of her own nominations. Moore has previously been nominated for her work on “So You Think You Can Dance,” and this year submitted for “Dancing With the Stars” as well. On stage for the reception Moore took the opportunity to thank those who give choreographers a creative space, while director and Academy governor Gail Mancuso hailed the choreographers as “lifesavers. You complete us,” she said.

“Dance is one of those things where people do it because they love it and they’re passionate about it,” said Hough. “For all the blood, sweat and tears that you put into it, the reward can be quite low compared to the amount of work that you put in — it’s such a passion driven art form and you can really see that and it’s incredible.”

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko . For fun music and dance mixes, visit WilUnleashed Soundcloud.
