Best Reality Show: The Amazing Race
Seasons 14 and 15 of the Emmy's undefeated Outstanding Reality Competition Program (it's won the honor all seven years the category's been in existence) both played out in 2009. We watched contestants globe-trot from the United States to Japan, from South East Asia to Dubai, from Russia to India. Armchair travelers got to see the world while watching a pair of Harlem Globetrotters dance their way to fourth place. Now that's entertainment.
