‘Dancing with the Stars’ Emmy submissions: Will it extend its record as the most awarded reality-competition show ever?

Who will win Emmys for Best Reality-Competition Program and Best Reality Host? You can now make your predictions in those two races right here in our predictions center. “Dancing with the Stars” won the hosting award for Tom Bergeron in 2012. But the show has never won the top prize despite 11 nominations. Can it finally win this year? Scroll down to find out what categories and episodes were submitted for the show on this year’s Emmy ballot.

“DWTS” hasn’t won the top award from the television academy, but it’s actually the most awarded reality-competition show in Emmy history with 17 victories. The show has won at least one prize every single year since 2008, including three victories for its choreography. Derek Hough won that award in 2013. Then he won it again with his sister Julianne Hough and Tessandra Chavez in 2015. And in 2017 longtime “DWTS” choreographer Mandy Moore prevailed for the first time. The show is a likely contender in the Choreography race again this year, but that ballot isn’t publicly released, so it’s not among the submissions listed below.

As usual “DWTS” aired two seasons during the Emmys eligibility period: one in fall 2017 and one in spring 2018. However, the show’s Emmy submissions overwhelmingly favor the 25th season, which aired last fall and ended with a victory for actor and singer Jordan Fisher. The 26th season, which lasted just four weeks in April and May this year and exclusively featured athlete contestants, has only been entered for Best Picture Editing (Variety) for Tonya Harding‘s week-one clip package.
