GREAT NEWS! Dancing with the Stars just earned 7 Emmy Award nominations:

1-5:  “Outstanding” Costumes, Makeup, Hairstyling, Lighting,   Camera/Video

  1. Costumes for Variety
  2. Nonfiction or Reality Programming, Hairstyling for a Multi-Camera Series or Special
  3. Lighting Design/Lighting Direction for a Variety Series
  4. Makeup for a Multi-Camera Series or Special (non-prosthetic)
  5. Technical Direction, Camera Work, Video Control for a Series


6-7:  Outstanding Choreography”!

  1. Derek Hough, “Kairos”
  2. Mandy Moore, “On Top of the World” and “Carol of the Bells”

We all know that everything Derek does is fabulous and that certain of his choreographies are absolutely mind blowing. What he accomplishes gives tribute to the stunning training that he (along with sister Julianne and Mark Ballas) received as children in Europe. He really deserves to win! And I don’t say that to take anything away from the awesome Mandy Moore. She, too, has become a dance legend in her own right. You don’t get chosen to choreograph for an entire show of a dozen or more dancers by not having your ducks in the best row possible. Both of these nominees are truly amazing and deserving. I’m not sure about your level of excitement, but I can’t wait to see whether one or both of them will win! If they do win, I hope that their winning choreographies will be shown on the Emmys, at least in part, so that we can be reminded visually of what’s winning and we can celebrate all the harder with them.

MARK YOUR CALENDAR:  69th annual Emmy Awards–Sunday, September 17th—on CBS (not ABC, where DWTS shows). DWTS has tough competition again in “So You Think You Can Dance” and also in “The Real O’Neals,” so keep your fingers crossed.
