On July 16, “So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley filled in for John Stamos to announce the Primetime Emmy nominations, and Deeley received some good news of her own: her fifth consecutive nomination for Best Reality Host. But she has yet to win. Is this finally her year?
With five nods, Deeley is the fourth most nominated host since the category was created in 2008, behind Tom Bergeron (“Dancing With the Stars“) with eight and Heidi Klum (“Project Runway“) and Ryan Seacrest (“American Idol“) with six. Bergeron and Klum are also back in the running this year, but they’ve won before, which makes Deeley the most overdue contender in this contest.
According to the combined predictions of our Experts, Editors, Users and Top 24 Users (those folks who came out on top predicting last year’s winners), Jane Lynch will win a second straight prize for “Hollywood Game Night,” but Deeley appears to be her only rival within striking distance, ranking second with 4/1 odds.
Deeley has certainly been visible this Emmy season. In addition to airing new episodes of “So You Think You Can Dance” this summer and announcing the Emmy nominations, she also presided over the Critics’ Choice TV Awards, where she was such a pro that right after they awarded her Best Reality Host, she resumed her emcee duties by introducing the next segment without missing a beat.
Do you think the Emmys will reward her too?
Last year, our Experts had an accuracy rate of 58.62% predicting the winners. That score tied them with both Gold Derby’s Editors and the Top 24 Users. Our Users scored 51.72% (Click on any of these groups to see what they got right and wrong last year.)
