The show is not telecast live, but an edited version will air on E! this Friday night.

Check out the list of Emmy nominees for the shows I cover on the blog: American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with The Stars HERE.

American Idol was shut out of every single category tonight, including, Best Art Direction for Variety or Nonfiction Program (Academy Awards),   Outstanding Short Form Picture Editing, (Late Night With Jimmy Fallon),   Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Variety or Music Series, (Grammy Awards & Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Concert)

Ryan Seacrest was once again shut out of the Best Reality Host category by Jeff Probst of Survivor who has won it every year since the category was created in 2008.  But, he was able to console him self when Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution a show he produces, won Best Reality program.

Controversy: The Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program was demoted this year.  Oh noes! So we find out if Ryan Seacrest is once again snubbed for best host. (Personally, I’m rooting for Dancing With The Star’s Tom Bergeron)

Congrats to Mia Michaels who won  Best Choreographer for her fine work on So You Think You Can Dance. and Neil Patrick Harris for his hilarious work on Glee.

  • Update: Mia Michaels won Best Choreography for “Gravity”, Koop Island Blues & One. Congrats, Mia!
  • Update2: Neil Patrick Harris won Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for Glee.
  • Update3: Jeff Probst wins Best Reality Show host AGAIN shutting out both Ryan Seacrest and Tom Bergeron
  • Update4: Ryan Seacrest gets to take home an Emmy anyway–The Ryan-produced Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution won Best Reality Series.

Founder and editor of, home of the awesomest fan community on the net. I love cheesy singing shows of all kinds, whether reality or scripted. I adore American Idol, but also love The Voice, Glee, X Factor and more!


  1. Honestly. What is up with all the love for Jeff Probst? I don’t get it. Tom should have won as he should have won other years, too. He is genuinely funny. He makes that show watchable.

  2. And on the other hand, I’m happy Jeff won!! I love him and Survivor. YAY, Jeff!! :)

  3. If Cat is unfairly shut out of even being nominated, than the totally quick and funny Tom should win that effing host award. grrr.

  4. Neil Patrick Harris was awesome in that Glee episode. It’s one of the shows I remember most vividly. The writing was great and he was hilarious. So, cool!

  5. Yay for Jeff Probst! I’m a Survivor and Jeff fan, so I’m happy. Grats to Adam Shankman, Mia Michaels, and Neil Patrick Harris. Oh and good for Ryan that his reality show won. I haven’t seen it, so can’t comment on it’s merits.
