I am so glad to see Cat Deeley nominated for her hosting duties on the show. The only program I have is that she is up against Tom Bergeron (arguably the hardest working man in La La Land) and Betty White (the hardest working elder in La La Land). I say the hosting category is pretty tight.

As for Outstanding Choreography, four of the nominations are So You Think You Can Dance related. Unfortunately they tend to lean more towards the Hip Hop / Broadway / Contemporary genres. **sighs** Ah well, what can you do? I am really pleased to see Travis Wall being commended for his work in general, if anything I would say that anyone related to the SYTYCD family has a pretty strong chance in nabbing that Outstanding Choreography Emmy.

The Primetime Emmys will air on September 23rd at the Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles on ABC. Jimmy Kimmel is tapped as host. The Creative Arts Emmy Awards Ceremony will be held on September 15th.

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)

And The Emmy Goes To…

Dance is one of my biggest passions. I grew up dancing at Augusta West Dance Studio (the same studio that Kathryn McCormick). I have a BFA in theatre/dance from Valdosta State University. Tap is my favorite style of dance.

And The Emmy Goes To…

SYTYCD for outstanding costumes, I also know who won the Emmy for outstanding choreography too. Well before I tell you who won there a few things you should know, who decides who wins. In this particular category there can be more than one winner. The panel is made up of peer choreographers who decide who wins and then has it confirmed. Yes I did a bit of research on the Emmy home page. As everyone know here the four dances for SYTYCD that were nominated. In addition to those there were two other nominees. DWTS Derek and Julianne Hough and Rob Ashford for the 81st Academy Awards that was hosted by Hugh Jackman. The only thing I don’t know is if they base it on the choreography alone or if the performance of the choreography plays apart.

On September 12, 2009 the creative arts Emmys were given out. This year there were two winners for outstanding choreography. The first winner was Rob Ashford for his “Musicals are Back”. The second winner was Tyce Diorio for “Silence” also known as Adam and Eve performed by Jessica and Will. Check out the video from the original airing…I left in the rehearsal process and the judges comments too.

I think Tyce is deserving of this award. All the nominees are deserving of this award, and don’t get upset if your favorite didn’t win, I’m sure they will be nominated again.
