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... =)

So You Think You Can Dance Canada's host Leah Miller wins Gemini Award

CTV REPORTS:


The 24th Annual Gemini Awards were presented in a glitzy event held in Calgary [ November 16th ]weekend and Leah Miller, host of So You Think You Can Dance Canada, beat out Canadian Idol’s Season 6 winner Theo Tams and 2009 Juno Award host comedian Russell Peters to receive the Gemini Award for best performance or host in a variety program.

The Gemini Awards honour the best in Canadian television as determined by members of the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television and other industry professionals.

Earlier in October, So You Think You Can Dance Canada Season 1 won a Gemini for Best Music, Variety Program or Series. In 2008, Miller received the Viewers’ Choice Gemini Award for Hottest Canadian Female.

What?

Well, this was shocking news. I am not a fan of Leah Miller and I am quite surprised she beat out Russell Peters who is hilarious and even Theo Tams, who is adorably charming.

I find Leah to be so condescending. SYTYCD Canada as a whole is a super show so in that sense it doesn’t surprise me that it’s host would win, but I can’t help but think it is more the success of the show overall than anything particular about Leah Miller.

That’s just my opinion, what do you think?

I am a blogger and reality tv lover. I blog here for SYTYCD but mostly the Canada version, since I live in Vancouver BC. I also blog about other reality tv shows on my own blog www.mandysmind.com

No Doubt Cat Deeley is the Best Reality TV Host

Check out this video of Cat Deeley’s odd, random and often hilarious moments from So You Think You Can Dance season 4. The fact that she can get away with all of these moments is proof enough that she’s the best reality tv host out there. My most favorite comment of the entire video is at 1:45. Quite possibly the funniest moment of So You Think You Can Dance season 4. Watch and tell me if it’s not true.
