The Amazing Race’s 2012 Emmy Submission Revealed!

The Amazing Race‘s 2012 Emmy Submission Revealed!

The Amazing Race submitted Episode 8 of its milestone 20th season for Emmy consideration this year.  “Let Them Drink Their Haterade” will try to get TAR its 10th Emmy nomination and 9th win at this year’s Emmy Awards. 

I thought the episode would be their Emmy submission when it first aired and it’s a great choice.  The leg featured some of the only real head-to-head competition of TAR20, great interactions with the locals, solid enough tasks and some breathtaking HD footage of the teams on safari on the Tanzanian countryside.

This year’s Emmy nominees will be announced Thursday, July 19th.  Good luck TAR!
