In the spirit of covering all things So You Think You Can Dance-related here at Homorazzi, I thought I would do a special entry outside of my weekly recaps and discussions to highlight the achievements of the show and their related alumni and judges. The 2010 Emmy Award nominations were announced earlier this week and although there appears to be endless categories and nominations, the dance/choreography section always holds a special place in my heart. Although these awards aren’t part of the on-air broadcast on August 29, I felt it was needed to call special attention to the brilliance of the artists involved.

The nominations for 2010 Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography were:

82nd Annual Academy Awards

Routines: Opening Number/No One Wants to Do It Alone & Score Suite
ABC – Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
Choreographer: Adam Shankman (SYTYCD season seven resident judge)

Dancing with the Stars

Routines: Futuristic Paso Doble/Living On Video & Quickstep/Anything Goes
ABC – BBC – Worldwide Productions
Choreographer: Derek Hough

Dancing With The Stars

Routine: Paso Doble/Malaquena
ABC – BBC – Worldwide Productions
Choreographers: Chelsie Hightower (SYTYCD alumni) and Derek Hough

So You Think You Can Dance

Choreographer: Mia Michaels

So You Think You Can Dance

Routine: Fear

(As brought to us earlier from commenter Kevin)…

My vote and hopes are with Canadian girl, Stacey Tookey to trump Mia Michaels (who was actually her mentor earlier in life – thanks Tyrell for that tid bit of information as well)!
