Emmy Predictions: Best Reality Program
Commentary: Last year's winner, Intervention, didn't make the cut this year, which is pretty surprising, and only managed one nomination for picture editing. Undercover Boss was a new series that did pretty well, but will have to just be happy just to be nominated. MythBusters, Dirty Jobs, and Antiques Roadshow have been around for awhile, but neither has a lot of buzz, and were merely space fillers in this category. For me, this category comes down to two. Kathy Griffin's Life of the D-List is always a hilarious riot, and has won this category twice, so it is definitely in the running. But this year I think that it is all about the highly-rated, well-received Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, and it looks like the buzz and the popularity will be enough to push it over the edge.
