The Emmy nominations were announced today, and Degrassi was nominated for its second consecutive Emmy in the “Outstanding Children’s Program” category for Extraordinary Machine Part 2. This year Degrassi is up against “Good Luck Charlie,” “iCarly,” “Victorious” and “Wizards of Waverly Place.” Normally if a documentary is in this category they’re a lock to win, but since there isn’t one the field may be wide open this year. Though excluding last year, “Wizards” won Emmy’s in 2009 and 2010 (one for the show and one for the movie).
Congrats to Linda, Stephen and the rest of the Epitome team for their hard work, and let’s hope they pull off a win this year! The actual Emmy broadcast is on Sunday, September 23rd, but I guess like last year people from Degrassi will be attending the non-televised Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony instead (it’s on Saturday, September 15th).
