Emmys 2011: 'Amazing Race' wins for reality competition series
CBS' "The Amazing Race" returned to the winner's circle, earning the Emmy for reality competition series on Sunday. The series, which began in 2001, was the dominant force in this category, winning the trophy continuously from 2003-09. Its reign ended last year, when Bravo's "Top Chef" took the top prize. The show's new season begins Sept. 25.
The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards are being handed out at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, and the show is being televised live on Fox TV.
