Memphis "Idol" Gets an Emmy Nod

Posted on Fri, Jul 20, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Quick! Name what the following episodes from today’s most popular TV series have in common: The Amazing Race: “I Know Phil, Little Ol' Gorgeous Thing" (CBS); American Idol: “Memphis Auditions" (Fox); Extreme Makeover Home Edition: “The Thomas Family" (ABC); Project Runway: “Iconic Statement" (Bravo); and Survivor: “An Evil Thought" (CBS).

Give up?

On Thursday, the five were announced as nominees for a primetime Emmy Award in a category called “Outstanding Picture Editing for Reality Programming.”

Congratulations to the makers of American Idol’s Memphis episode. Maybe the city itself inspired them. And maybe there’s good reason for the other nominees: easy to imagine “an evil thought” on Survivor and easy to picture an “iconic statement” on Project Runway. Plus, we’re glad for the Thomas Family, whose house got extremely made over. But who/what is “Phil, Little Ol’Gorgeous Thing” of The Amazing Race? A possible Emmy winner? Or will it be AI’s “Memphis Auditions”? Find out when the winners of the primetime Emmy Awards are announced mid-September.
