The 2011 Emmys gets a nice big “10” paddle from us for nominating Dancing With the Stars as Best Reality Competition Program and Tom Bergeron as Best Reality TV Host. Not that there was ever any doubt!

The nominations for the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were announced Thursday morning and will be handed out on Sept. 18.

Tom and DWTS have the usual tough competition with the added threat of Ms. Cat Deeley and So You Think You Can Dance. Since half the DWTS pros seem to have SYTYCD connections these days, it’s probably going to be hard for them to decide which show to support. Then there’s Julianne Hough and Mark Ballas, who also have American Idol connections through their sweeties.

It’d be nice for a surprise win this year, instead of just Jeff Probst (and his admittedly lovely dimples) winning again. But good luck to all!
