Can 'So You Think You Can Dance' waltz off with top Emmy? [poll]

So you think you can dance news

After years of shocking neglect at the Emmys, "So You Think You Can Dance" is finally getting serious recognition. It's not only nominated for reality-competition show for the first time, but Cat Deeley is up for host.

Given the show's enormous popularity with TV viewers, that may not seem like a big breakthrough, but it is. "So You Think You Can Dance" has been so far out of Emmy favor that for the last four years it has won the category for best choreography but wasn't nominated for reality-competition show. By comparison, "Dancing With the Stars" made the top race every time.

"Dancing With the Stars" hasn't won the top Emmy, though. "Top Chef" pulled off an upset last year over "The Amazing Race," which won the previous seven years. Now that "So You Think You Can Dance" has made the contest, do you think it can — and will — win?
