‘The Voice’ Nominated for Several 2013 Emmy Awards
America’s hottest reality singing competition is up against five other shows for the Outstanding Reality — Competition Program Emmy in 2013. It’s one of five nods for ‘The Voice.’ If you believe his Facebook post, Blake Shelton is celebrating in his special way after learning the news.
“Now THAT calls for a drink!” Shelton wrote about the honor, announced last week. His show was also nominated in 2012, but lost to ‘The Amazing Race.’ The CBS global competition program has won this award nine of the last 10 years. Only ‘Top Chef’ broke the streak, and the Bravo show is up for the award again this year.
Rounding out the category are ‘Dancing With the Stars’ (ABC), ‘Project Runway’ (Lifetime) and ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ (Fox). The other four nominations for ‘The Voice’ recognize technical aspects of the show, like art direction, lighting design and hairstyling.
Shelton’s team won the show for a third straight time this spring. Teen singer Danielle Bradbery took the trophy and quickly signed a record deal with Big Machine Records. Her first single, ‘The Heart of Dixie,’ was just released. The previous seasons’ winners are Cassadee Pope, Jermaine Paul and Javier Colon (Team Adam).
