The A-List Awards show aims to recognize the best in food, fashion, design, beauty and pop culture. The first ever A-List Awards show is being hosted by Kathy Griffin, who stars in the reality TV series My Life on the D-List. The A-List Awards are taking place at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York and will air on Thursday, June 12 at 10 PM ET/PT on Bravo. There will be a special red carpet pre-show hosted by Project Runway’s Tim Gunn starting at 8:30 PM ET/PT.
Last year, Ryan Seacrest hosted the Emmy Awards. This year, he might have a shot at winning an Emmy Award. The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Board of Governors has decided to recognize one of the most overlooked and thankless jobs in television.
It’s hard work stretching a ten second elimination into an hour long show, and it’s about time someone recognized that fact. The Academy has created a new award category for “Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program.” The first ever award in this new category will be presented at the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards airing on Sunday, September 21 from 8 PM to 11 PM ET on ABC.
John Shaffner, the Chairman and CEO of the Television Academy, said, “Reality television has become such an integral part of television and our culture, so it only made sense for us to create this new highly competitive category.”
Even though Seacrest might take home an Emmy for the way he gave Michael Johns hope by mentioning how no one was eliminated last year during Idol Gives Back before telling him goodbye, Simon Cowell will still go unrecognized for telling contestants they sound like drunk wedding singers. The rules and regulation state that the new category is for the proactive “master of ceremony” host, which specifically does not include “reactive participants or judges.”

As usual, reality TV provided many controversial, outrageous, and memorable moments in 2007. From ponyhawks to fainting spells, American Idol and Dancing with the Stars once again delivered their fair share of controversy. The Bachelor, The Biggest Loser, Big Brother, and Survivor also delivered some shocking moments of their own.
In reality TV, the year 2007 might be best remembered as the year that American Idol slipped. And by slipped, we mean it still dominated the competition, but just a little bit less so than in previous seasons. After two back-to-back stellar years, the talent level took a dip and so did the ratings. We’re confident that American Idol producers have learned from their mistake and that the franchise will be back stronger than ever in 2008.
Because there are just so many reality TV stars out there, Reality TV Magazine is once again breaking our editorial picks top ten lists of reality TV stars for the year into three different categories. The categories are Top Ten Male Reality TV Stars Of 2007, Top Ten Female Reality TV Stars of 2007, and Top Ten Celebrity Reality TV Stars of 2007. The celebrity category includes reality TV judges, producers and hosts, as well as regular celebrities who have appeared on reality TV.
Big Brother proved to be the big winner at the Fox Reality Channel
Really Awards 2007, with the show claiming five awards. Highlights of the Really Awards included Sanjaya winning Favorite Loser
for his performance on “American Idol,” Bridget from “The Girls Next
Door” winning Favorite Hottie and the Golden Realitini for Favorite
Reality Performer going to Evel Dick from “Big Brother 8.”
The Fox Reality Channel Really Awards 2007 might very well turn out to
be the most watched show in the history of Fox Reality. Not because
people are dying to see who takes home the Golden Realitini for “Most
Memorable Reality Performer,” but because of the most talked about
awards show moment since Faith Hill (jokingly) freaked out over Carrie
Underwood beating her our for Female Vocalist Of The Year at the CMA
In 2006, the Fox Reality Channel held their first Really Awards for
reality TV. In 2007, Fox Reality Channel has announced their second
annual Really Awards. The Really Awards honor reality television and
all of the outrageous moments (and personalities) that kept America
glued to their television sets this year.
