Emmy 2015: Why Nick Cannon & More Deserve Reality Host Nods

Predictions and nomination desires for the 67th Primetime Emmy abound as July 16th the day of the live nominations reveal draws nearer.

Blogger CarterMatt has been revealing his nomination choices for each of the categories and has just shared his choices for Favorite Reality Host nominations and Nick has made the cut.

CarterMatt shared his guidelines of what makes a great host and just why his 5 choices which also include Cat Deeley, Jane Lynch and Jeff Probst made his list.

For CarterMatt these are the characteristics it takes for a great host: 

"You need to keep the show moving, remain impartial, and yet at the same time at least appear somewhat sympathetic to the contestants. It’s a difficult emotional tightrope, and then you have to also remember that there is an audience watching who wants to be entertained."

Here's his reasons why Nick is one of his nomation choices for Reality Host.

Nick Cannon, “America’s Got Talent” (NBC) – The perfect host for this show. Where Nick probably shines the most here is the auditions, mostly because he has the freedom here to go a little more off-script and goof off with some of the contestants with need be. Cannon’s a very good physical comic, and he goes to places that some other hosts would probably shy away from for the sake of a laugh or a smile.
