Woohoo! American Ninja Warrior did it again! Just this morning, the nominations for the 2019 Emmy awards were announced and our favorite show is up for two awards!

American Ninja Warrior is nominated in the category of Outstanding Competition Show. We do have some pretty strong company in the category.

  • The Amazing Race (CBS)
  • American Ninja Warrior (NBC)
  • Nailed It (Netflix)
  • RuPaul’s Drag Race (VH1)
  • Top Chef (Bravo)
  • The Voice (NBC)

The show is also nominated in the category of Outstanding Directing for a Reality Program for the Minneapolis Qualifiers, directed by Patrick McManus.

This brings American Ninja Warrior to a total of seven nominations and yet, no wins. Okay, that needs to change. This is also the fourth year in a row the show has been nominated in the category of Outstanding Competition Show.

The Emmys will air on Sunday, September 22, at 8pm EST, 5pm PST on Fox. Come on, ANW!
