Congratulations to Dancing with the Stars for it’s Emmy Nomination for best reality competition program!!!! Competition in this category includes:
Keep in mind that these nominations are going to include Season 7 and maybe 6 – not season 8. I’m going out on a limb and calling it for TAR again. It’s definitely a favorite. My runner up is DWTS – I can’t even remember who the winner was for American Idol for the nominated season. Oh, wait – that was the season with the Davids’ right? Yeah, I’m going with DWTS.
Derek and Julianne Hough were also nominated for their choreography of their Jive to Great Balls of Fire during Season 7’s Design a Dance. Sorry to SYTYCD fans, I’m calling for either Derek and Julianne or the Academy Awards. Yes, I’m a Derek fan, but I’m also a long time watcher of award shows. Anytime you get multiple nominations for one show in one category, the odds are very high you will split your votes, leaving the win to the outsiders. Of course, I’m rooting for Derek and Jules – for one of the more memorable dances on that show.
And last, but certainly not least, my prediction/wish/prognostication begins to bear out. Tom Bergeron is nominated for host, as is Phil Keogan from TAR (first time nominee), Ryan Seacrest, Heidi Klum, Jeff Probst and the peeps from Top Chef. Sorry John. :-) I really want Phil to win (because he’s hot :-) ), but I’m going to bet on Probst. As a side note, if you watch Survivor and don’t read the blogs Probst writes during the run of the show you’re missing out. Seriously – dude is hilarious. I wish Tom would do it, I bet he would be great.
