It takes 2: Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman could be second duo to win Best Reality Host Emmy

Nick Offerman may be on the verge of receiving his very first and long overdue Emmy nomination. The erstwhile Ron Swanson is in fifth place in our Best Reality Host odds for “Making It,” his NBC crafting series that he co-hosts with his “Parks and Recreation” co-star Amy Poehler. The duo submitted together and if they prevail, they’d be the second twosome to share the prize.

Since the category’s inception in 2008, Best Reality Host has gone to solo contenders all but once: Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn won for “Project Runway” in 2013. Klum initially submitted by herself and received bids from 2008-10 before being dropped in 2011 and ’12. Once she entered with Gunn, they made it work and won and have been nominated every year since.

Besides Klum and Gunn, two other co-host pairs have been nominated: Padma Lakshmi and Tom Colicchio for “Top Chef” in 2009, and Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg for “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” in 2017. Neither of these duos has been nominated more than once.

SEE Is Nick Offerman ‘Making It’ into the Emmy race for the very first time with help from Amy Poehler?

Poehler certainly knows a thing about shared Emmy wins. The “Saturday Night Live” alum was an eternal Emmy bridesmaid — she and Jon Hamm, who was 0-15 until he won for “Mad Men” in 2015, once threw an Emmy losers party — until she finally triumphed on her 17th nomination in 2016 in Best Comedy Guest Actress for co-hosting “SNL” with Tina Fey. They memorably presented at the main ceremony each holding half of an Emmy, so if Poehler and Offerman win, maybe they’ll “split” this one too and she can make a whole statuette.

If Poehler and Offerman make it in, they’ll have their work cut out for them to take down three-time reigning champ RuPaul Charles (“RuPaul’s Drag Race”), who’s on track for a record-tying four-peat. Charles is in first place in our odds, followed by two-time champ Jane Lynch (“Hollywood Game Night”) in second, the “Queer Eye” guys in third and Ellen DeGeneres (“Ellen’s Game of Games”) in fourth.
