Emmy nominations were announced this week, and in those nods both Blake Shelton and Carrie Underwood are nominated! Sort of. They’re actually (and obviously) in shows that have been nominated.
Carrie starred in “The Sound of Music Live!” this past December as Maria von Trapp and the show is up for 4 Emmy Awards; Outstanding Special Class Program, Outstanding Music Direction, Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special and Outstanding Technical Direction.
“The Voice” is nominated for Outstanding Reality-Competition Show where Blake is a judge and mentor to aspiring musicians and singers. Although Blake and Carrie’s shows are not nominated in any of the same categories, “The Voice” still has some tough competition. “The Amazing Race”, “So You Think You Can Dance”, “Dancing With the Stars”, “Top Chef” and “Project Runway” are also all nominated in that category.
The 2014 Emmy Awards will air on NBC on August 25, and will be hosted by Seth Meyers.
