2015 Emmy Nomination Predictions: Best Reality-Competition Series

2015 Nomination Predictions
The Amazing Race
Dancing With the Stars
Project Runway
So You Think You Can Dance?
Top Chef
The Voice

Other Contenders - Hollywood Game Night, American Idol, Survivor, RuPaul's Drag Race, Hell's Kitchen, America's Got Talent, Hell's Kitchen, MasterChef Junior, Chopped, Face Off, Ellen's Design Challenge, Beat Bobby Flay, Food Network Star, Guys Grocery Games, American Ninja Warrior, Big Brother, The Biggest Loser, Cutthroat Kitchen, The Taste

Commentary - So Hollywood Game Night's Jane Lynch won the Reality Host Emmy last year, The Taste's Anthony Bourdain was nominated, American Idol is about to go off the air so nostalgia will play in its favor, RuPaul's Drag Race is quickly becoming a favorite, Face Off won the CCTA, Ellen's Design Challenge featured Ellen DeGeneres, and the Food Network has a litany of great competition shows including my personal favorite, Chopped. But I really don't think any of that matters. The same six have been on the rotation for years now, with The Voice replacing American Idol a few years ago (it also replaced it in the ratings). They all have had good seasons, all remain popular, and the voters in this category, like their Variety counterparts rarely add new contenders. It would be nice to see some new names in the mix, just to bring some new blood and competition, but until they signal a change, continuity makes sense in predictions.
