Outstanding Reality Competition
Nominees: The Amazing Race, Dancing With the Stars, Project Runway, So You Think You Can Dance, Top Chef, The Voice
Should win: Sometimes I wonder whether the TV Academy regrets including reality categories at all (or at least showing them during the primetime broadcast, and not relegating them to the Creative Arts Emmys). The competition category in particular has been a disaster. Created in 2003, CBS's The Amazing Race has won nine out of 11 times, and the only other shows that have won are Top Chef in 2010 and The Voice in 2013. Even when American Idol was the most galvanizing show on television, a star-making force, and the last huge hit of its kind, it didn't win. Survivor never won either. It's pretty much a joke! So as far as which show should win … who's to say? Fox's So You Think You Can Dance is wonderfully produced, and has a passionate audience; NBC's The Voice is the only real hit here, and an important show to the TV business.
Will win: For that reason, I imagine The Voice will win again.
