Jeff Probst and 'Food Revolution' win at Creative Arts Emmy Awards


By Reality TV World staff, 08/22/2010 

Jeff Probst may have to heed his own advice and withdraw from Emmy consideration before long at this rate.

The Survivor host won the Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program award again during Saturday's Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony. 

Probst beat out fellow nominees The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron, and Project Runway host Heidi Klum for the award, which he has now won all three times since the Academy of Television Arts & Science introduced it in 2008.

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution took home the Outstanding Reality Program honor and won the other major reality award that was presented during the ceremony.

The six-episode series -- which aired on ABC on Friday nights this spring and has not been renewed by the network -- upset four veteran series (Bravo's Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, PBS' Antiques Roadshow, and Discovery's Mythbusters and Dirty Jobs) and the 2009-10 television season's top-rated new series (CBS' Undercover Boss) to win the award.  Produced by American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, it featured the British chef traveling to Huntington, WV and attempting to give the city, which was labeled "the unhealthiest city in America" by The Associated Press in 2008, a nutritional makeover.

Probst's award was one of two won by Survivor, which also took home the Outstanding Cinematography For Reality Programming award.

Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance also each won two awards during the Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony.

Dancing with the Stars -- which had received nine nominations and will still compete against The Amazing Race, American Idol, Project Runway, and Top Chef for the Outstanding Reality Competition award at next Sunday's 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony -- won awards for Outstanding Hairstyling For A Multi-Camera Series Or A Special and Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, Video Control For A Series.

So You Think You Can Dance judge Mia Michaels won the Outstanding Choreography award while the show's costume designers were one of three recipients in the Outstanding Costumes For A Variety/Music Program Or A Special category.   So You Think You Can Dance had also received nominations for outstanding makeup and an additional choreography nod for Stacey Tookey.

A&E's Intervention -- which won the Outstanding Reality Program award last year but wasn't nominated in the category this year -- claimed the Outstanding Picture Editing For Reality Programming category, while Discovery's Deadliest Catch won the award for Outstanding Sound Mixing For Nonfiction Programming.

Deadliest Catch lost its three other nominations -- including the eclectic Outstanding Nonfiction Series award, which was won by PBS' The National Parks: America's Best Idea.   Discovery's Life, IFC's Monty Python: Almost the Truth, and PBS' American Experience and American Masters had also been nominated in the category.

In addition, The National Parks: America's Best Idea also won an award for Outstanding Writing For Nonfiction Programming.

Probst had voiced his frustration at The Amazing Race for winning Outstanding Reality-Competition Program honors for the seventh straight year after last year's Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony.

"You can't argue against Race -- it's well-produced, it's a big show," Probst told reporters.  "[But] maybe The Amazing Race should do what Oprah did [in the Daytime Emmys] and pull [itself] out of the competition."
