To the Editor:
While it is nice that the Emmys decided to include a “reality” award this season, why did they pick three shows that are not reality?
“The Amazing Race,” “American Idol” and “Survivor” are gameshows.
Everyone on the show is competing for a prize by performing tasks planned out by the producers. We are not getting a “real” glimpse into their lives.
If the Academy wants “reality,” they should change the title of this award to reflect the gameshows it has chosen to honor.
