Scotty McCreery's 'Idol' homecoming gets Emmy nomination

Bookmark and Share

We'll try to have more on all the Emmy nominations a little later (our opinions, like you care!), but this jumped out at us: the segment featuring Scotty McCreery's Garner homecoming on "American Idol" was nominated for an Emmy in the category of "Outstanding Short-Form Picture Editing." We agree it was outstanding!

Note that the nomination is for "Scotty's Home Story," not the whole episode or anyone else's story. Scotty's story.

Scotty's story is up against some tough competition, though. That entry will have to battle the Academy Awards, the ESPY Awards, and Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Overall, it looks like "American Idol" received 10 Emmy nominations. The other nominations were in the following categories: The show itself for Outstanding Reality-Competition show; Ryan Seacrest for Outstanding Reality Show Host; Outstanding Sound Editing for a Nonfiction Program (New Orleans Audition #2); Outstanding Sound Mixing for Variety or Musical Series or Special (Finale); Outstanding Sound Mixing for Nonfiction Program (New Orleans Audition #2); Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, Video Control for a Series (finale); Outstanding Art Direction for Variety, Musical or Nonfiction Program (ep 1018); Outstanding Directing for a Variety, Music or Comedy series (ep 1024/1025A); Outstanding Lighting Design/Lighting Direction for a Variety, Music, or Comedy Series (finale).
