EXCEPTIONAL STRUCTURED REALITY PROGRAM
PRICE PREDICTION COMMENT:
Netflix wins its ninth statuette (overall) for its flagship reality TV show »weird eyein 2021, which landed six names across the board. The Fab 5, also up for reality TV hosting, continues to draw voters and could walk away with the award once again for the sixth season.
With four wins in this category, it is currently tied with ABC”shark tank” as the most awarded of all time. One of the two could break the all-time winning record this year.
The ABC series has dominated for the past 12 years, with 10 total nominations in this category, along with the iconic “judges” panel. Remaining relevant in our current climate of small business expansion, it could once again be a favorite. However, he hasn’t won since 2017.
There are 36 shows vying for attention, which will allow for five nominees to be named.
With 19 previous names, PBS’ “Antiques Tourhas owned this corner of the Emmys for quite some time and is currently the most nominated series in the category’s history. What’s impressive is that it managed to do this without a loud and splashy rewards campaign. Instead, executive producer Marsha Bemko, lead producer Sam Farrell and producer Sarah Elliott know how to reach key voters.
Returning for its second season, though it didn’t quite hit all the magic notes of the first, Kinetic Content’s dating experience”Love is blind” has always gangbusters on the Netflix platform and could be one of its many love-making reality shows.
Food Network might have a possible entry with “Restaurant: Impossible“while HGTV”Married to real estateand “Magnolia Network”Fixer Upper: Welcome Home” continues to garner support.
Also watch out for HBO shows”My mother, your father” or TLC “Dr Pimple Popperwho could enter the fray. Both seem right on the recognition bubble.
