EMMY WATCH 2008: Outstanding Reality Show Host

I’m still a little bitter about this category….Here are the nominees for Outstanding Host of a Reality Show –

Clockwise from Left: Heidi Klum, PROJECT RUNWAY; Howie Mandel, DEAL OR NO DEAL; Jeff Probst, SURVIVOR; Ryan Seacrest, AMERICAN IDOL; Tom Bergeron, DANCING WITH THE STARS

Should Win: I hope Probst wins this thing.  He really grills his contestants, from the sounds of it, he has a hand in directing, producing, you name it.  I want him to win.

Will Win:  I believe I’ve been quoted as saying “If Ryan Seacrest wins, so help me God…” while shaking my right fist in the air.  Well, I have a feeling I’ll be doing a little cursing on Sunday when he wins this thing because he’s all over the GD place.

Should Be Nominated:  My two favorite hosts in the world – Phil Keoghan from THE AMAZING RACE and Cat Deeley from SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE were cruelly kept off the list.  Both are deserving of a nomination and a win in my book.  I also kind of think Tyra deserves it more than Howie Mandel for AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL, to be perfectly honest!
