Not sure how I feel about this.August 6, 2013 at 2:55 pm #293529
I agree it is a mistake but should be interesting. Although I wish we could have seen Cat Deeley win her emmy this year.August 6, 2013 at 3:22 pm #293530
Choreography is seriously going to mess with all of our scores in the predictions center. Or maybe it is super easy. I have not ever paid much attention to that category.
Who wants to bet that reality host is never coming back to the main telecast?August 6, 2013 at 3:35 pm #293531
Blah, I guess choreography will be added to the predictions center and we’ll need to discuss the category more.
Smash won the Emmy last year (not nominated this year).
This category loves ties a lot.

Why??? No disrespect to the people that choreograph, but I really don’t feel this is more “important” than reality host. Of all of the categories to move to the main telecast (Guest Acting, Reality Series, etc.), they go with CHOREOGRAPHING????August 6, 2013 at 4:24 pm #293534
One of this year’s producer said that they added it because of Neil Patrick Harris, and there’ll be a routine choreographed by all the nominees. So I do think it’s very possible Reality Host (or a different category) will replace choreography next yearAugust 6, 2013 at 4:59 pm #293535
This category loves ties a lot.
They’re not actually ties. This category is a juried or area award (I confuse these two terms), so there can be one winner, multiple winners or even no winner at all.
And this is the reason why it’s risky to have it presented on the main telecast. What if there are two or three winners? It would take more time and they would need to explain the structure of the category to the audience.
I have no problem with Reality Host being moved off the main show (or even discontinued altogether), but there are other categories that should be presented on the telecast like Animated Program, Reality Program, Variety Special, Children’s Program or even one of the categories that honor non-fiction programming.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantAugust 6, 2013 at 5:01 pm #293536
Guest Acting should be the category that is moved to the primetime show, not choreography. This is a mistake.August 6, 2013 at 5:19 pm #293537
Guest Acting shouldn’t be in the telecast either, because there’s enough acting categories as it is. Animated Program or Reality Program or non-fiction really would be better to replace Choreography.August 6, 2013 at 5:37 pm #293538
I would understand if Probst was inevitably going to win, and get his umpteenth Emmy, but this will hopefully only be temporary.August 6, 2013 at 5:39 pm #293539
Guest Acting should be the category that is moved to the primetime show, not choreography. This is a mistake.
They can’t drop one category to add four unless you wanted them to pick a random guest acting category.August 6, 2013 at 6:41 pm #293540
Since miniseries and movie combined they are one category short of pre 2011 ceremonies. I agree that guest acting should be at the main ceremony, then the debate about its ”major-ness” would end.August 6, 2013 at 6:58 pm #293541
The move is only for one year, and this is b/c of Neil Patrick Harris’s involvement. The dance number with him in it might be cool, so I’m for that aspect of it. Not having the Reality Host category on the main show is disappointing. We might get a different winner than usual this year, and that would have been nice to see in its entirety than versus not seeing it at all or an edited form of it during the Creative Arts Emmys telecast.
