2014 Emmy Predictions: Best Reality Host

Will Win - Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum "Project Runway"

Could Win - Jane Lynch "Hollywood Game Night"

Should Win - Either the PR duo or Lynch

Commentary - This race is actually brewing into an interesting battle between two worthy contenders. The front runners, and my current predictions, are the dynamic duo of Project Runway, Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn. When Klum was submitting just herself, she had not shot in hell of actually winning because she was only on the screen half the time. The other half in the room as the contestants were making the clothes consisted of Tim Gunn. So when they finally decided to submit together, their combined screen times propelled them to victory. I think that this will continue to help them in future races, including this one. Between the two they have a great amount of screen time, and their dynamic (helpful mentor vs. critical bad ass) creates fantastic television. But Jane Lynch is a real threat. I always thought Betty White could win based on her popularity alone, but she never has enough screen time to really merit a win for Off Their Rockers. Jane Lynch is in a similar situation. She is a well-respected, Emmy-award winning actor that is incredibly popular within the industry, and her personal popularity alone will garner a lot of votes. But unlike White, Lynch is the star of her show. She is involved in every aspect of it, she is a riot, and a presence on screen, and she gets to interact with famous celebrities on a weekly basis. I think that Klum and Gunn are still in the lead, but watch out for Lynch.
