Phil Keoghan, 'The Amazing Race'    :hearts:
By Christy Grosz
June 11, 2008

PHIL KEOGHAN puts so much time, effort and perspiration into the five-time Emmy-winning CBS series that he could easily appear to be a contestant.

Sleep deprivation notwithstanding, Keoghan says the challenges of working on such a fast-paced show invigorate him. " 'Amazing Race' is, without a doubt, the toughest hosting assignment I've ever had in my career; it's certainly been the most rewarding," says Keoghan, who has been on the host beat for more than 20 years.

Though the physical demands of Keoghan's job are apparent, he says the skill in being a compelling host get overlooked. "If I can make it look easy, that means I'm doing my job properly," he says. "But the easier I make it look, that is a reflection on the preparation we've done up front."

No amount of preproduction research can anticipate the spontaneous moments that pop up in unscripted television, and that's where Keoghan says skill really comes into play. "The stuff I love most is where I have to take more responsibility for making things work in the moment," Keoghan says. "Pulling out good sound bites from people and trying to thread a story through shows."

Traveling to far-flung destinations has given Keoghan unique experiences. "I remember washing my hair out in front of the terra cotta warriors [in China]. . . . A guy says to me, 'The last person that was allowed down here to film anything was President Clinton.' It's kind of crazy that you get these incredible opportunities."

--Christy Grosz

A bunch of thoughts on Emmy picks from the Hollywood Reporter:

Ed Bark
Writer, Unclebarky.com; former TV critic at the Dallas Morning News:

Reality-competition program pick: "Project Runway" (Bravo)

Quote
"(CBS') 'The Amazing Race' just can't win again. I think it is kind of ridiculous to just keep giving that show Emmys. I think 'Runway' might have a real shot both at getting nominated and maybe winning."


Dave Walker
TV columnist, The Times-Picayune (New Orleans):

Reality-competition program picks: "Project Runway" and "Top Chef" (Bravo), "The Amazing Race" (CBS)

Quote
"I think that it will be a combination between network and cable shows only because I think 'Project Runway' and maybe 'Top Chef' will work their way in. Both are high-quality shows that involve people with real talent, which is a distinguishing characteristic on reality television. I watched most of 'The Amazing Race' for the first time this year, and I thought, 'Wow. I have been missing out.'"


Diane Werts
Contributor, Newsday:

Reality-competition program picks: "Survivor" and "The Amazing Race" (CBS)

Quote
"'American Idol' and 'Project Runway' are hampered by a lot of people sitting in a room talking. 'Survivor' and the 'Amazing Race' get so much attention because they are big and they look movie-like, and there is a lot of activity and variety. So I think there is always going to be a bias toward that."

That's because the Academy is not a fan of reality. They'll just rinse, wash and repeat.

"the Academy is not a fan of reality"

Well, the Academy has increased the number of awards in the Reality categories so I disagree.

It is clear that the Academy is a fan of the Amazing Race(which is a reality show the last I heard). We should remember that it has awarded TAR 5 consecutive Emmys

Well they had he creative emmy awards this weekend, and AR was a wash.  Didn't win a damn thing.

They were nominated in:

Cinematography for reality shows/ lost to Carrier - Rites of Passage from PBS

Direction for Non fiction / lost to This American Life -  Escape from Showtime.

Editing for Reality program / Lost to Top Chief on Bravo

Sound Editing for non fiction programming / Lost to The War - When Things got Tough on PBS

Sound mixing for non fiction program / Lost to American Masters - Tony Bennett on PBS


So I believe the only thing left is OUtstanding Competitive Reality Show which will be announced on the Emmy awards show.

I am very curious.  I don't think we will win.  With fewer episodes then usual (thanks again CBS, still pissed) the show has a smaller pool of episodes to choose from and has been of th air longer then any of the other nominated shows.

Of course the one plus is that they often vote conservatively and that does favor AR.

Yes, not a good sign.  In past seasons, TAR has at least won several of the technical awards.  Maybe after five in a row, the "voters" (whoever they are) are voting for a CHANGE. (It is the thing this year!)  And if they can nominate Howie Mandel and not our man with the lifted left eyebrow as a "reality" host, then all bets are off the table.

tv guide thinks we will win!

Reality-Competition Program
Will the epic Battle of the Davids give American Idol its first win? Probably not as long as The Amazing Race stays in the running. Nothing has its scale, visual splendor or degree of difficulty.
