American Idol Receives 5 Emmy Nominations, So You Think You Can Dance Recieves 4

The nominations for the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced this morning, and both American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance received nominations. The show will be broadcast on ABC, Sunday September 21.

American Idol received 5 nominations, including one in the brand-new category, Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program. Ryan Seacret is a most capable host, and I’ll be disappointed if he doesn’t beat the likes of Heidi Klum (Project Runway), Howie Mandel (Deal or No Deal), Tom Bergeron (Dancing With The Stars) and even Jeff Probst (Survivor).

Idol’s other nominated categories are:

  • Outstanding Reality-Competition Program – This is the Award that Amazing Race wins every frickin’ year.
  • Outstanding Picture Editing Of Clip Packages For Talk, Performance, Award Or A Reality-Competition Program – The David Cook Homecoming clip from The Top 3 Results Show is nominated in this category.
  • Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Variety, Music Series Or A Special – The nomination is for Idol Gives Back.
  • Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, Video Control For A Miniseries, Movie Or A Special – Also for Idol Gives Back. IGB won in this category last year. It’s Idol’s only Emmy win.

So You Think You Can Dance is nominated in two categories. Three routines from last season received nods in the Outstanding Choreography category:

  • Hummingbird and flower / …The Chairman Waltz by Wade Robson
  • Transformers / “Fuego by Shane Sparks
  • Table / …Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) by Mandy Moore

SYTYCD is also nominated in the Outstanding Makeup For A Multi-Camera Series Or A Special (Non-Prosthetic) category.
