Of course, The Amazing Race and Top Chef are both nominated again this year — for the eleventh and seventh consecutive years respectively — as are perennial bridesmaids Project Runway (a nine-time nominee), Dancing With the Stars (up for the eighth time) and So You Think You Can Dance (celebrating its third nod). The relative newcomer to the battle is The Voice, which is in contention for the second year running.

  • TOP CHEF gets my vote. Amazing Race’s almost winning streak should end.

    • I really like Face Off too. It definitely deserves a nomination.

    • Face Off is excellent. It deserves a nomination for SURE (and a win, but I’d be happy with a nom at this point).

  • SYTYCD, by a mile. The camera work, the flawless host and the fact that it brings dance to millions of people who wouldn’t otherwise see it.

    • The camera work wasnt as great this year. I caught a bunch of glimpses of other cameras, and not the best shots during the group dances,

  • So You Think You Can Dance. Because every year the talent level get raised. More and more professional amazing dancers come on and the new styles are fantastic. I would have voted for Project Runway but the way Lifetime cheaps out on the time allotted to the designers has lowered the quality of the show. If they’d just give them a little more time maybe we could get back to outrageous awesome fashion.

    • My wife and I usually like both SYTYCD and Runway but this year disagreed with the choice of “Americer’s” favorite dancers for the most recent competition. The brilliant snark by the judges on Runway and the super suave Tim “Make it work” Gunn always make this show a hoot to watch.

  • What about Survivor? The one that basically started it all?

  • I’m with benny, Masterchef is my favorite, but alas it wasn’t nominated.

    • ITA with both you and Benny. MasterChef should get a nod in the Emmy race.

  • I voted for Dancing With The Stars because it’s the only one of those I watch! And not surprised to see it scored the lowest – but hey it’s a fun, fun show!

    • Yes! Chanté, you stay!

  • So You Think You Can Dance. The fact that Cat Deely lost in the host category is still baffling to me!
