Academy board approves adding new reality TV host Emmy Award

By Christopher Rocchio, 04/23/2008 

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced its Board of Governors has approved a new Emmy Award category for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program.

The category, which the board had first discussed adding in February, will be open to "the proactive master of ceremony" host for a reality or reality competition series. 

"Reactive participants or judges" are not eligible to receive the award.

"Reality television has become such an integral part of television and our culture, so it only made sense for us to create this new highly competitive category," said Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman and CEO John Shaffner.

The first award for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program will be presented at the 60th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, which will be broadcast live from Los Angeles' Nokia Theater, L.A. Live on Sunday, September 21 at 8PM ET on ABC.
