The Amazing Race has been nominated for six Primetime Emmy Awards this year including its 12th nomination for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program.
TAR is nominated in all the categories it was nominated for last year with a return nomination in the Outstanding Directing category. Unfortunately, Phil Keoghan has been shut out of the Outstanding Host category for the 2nd year in a row. TAR went home empty-handed last year.
The episode TAR submitted this year was Season 23’s Episode 9, “Part Like the Red Sea,” probably the only Emmy-worthy episode in the last year that feature teams Racing through Indonesia and Nicole’s epic meltdown.
TAR’s six nominations for this year are:
Outstanding Reality-Competition Program
Outstanding Cinematography for Reality Programming
Outstanding Directing for Nonfiction Programming
Outstanding Picture Editing for Reality Programming
Outstanding Sound Editing for Nonfiction Programming (Single or Multi-Camera)
Outstanding Sound Mixing for Nonfiction Programming
