Clearly, the Academy has a preference for Below Deck Mediterranean and Top Chef and while Bravo fans may find that confusing considering The Real Housewives’ hold on the network, these shows in particular have been recognized in the past so seeing them recognized at the 2022 Emmy nominations once again isn’t all that surprising.

Plus, Below Deck also happens to be one of the best-reviewed shows on the network, along with Top Chef, so once again it kind of makes sense for it to be recognized with an Emmy. Fingers crossed!

As for VH1, RuPaul’s Drag Race is the clear winner with both the regular season (Season 14) and All Stars (Season 6) being recognized. It’s no wonder why Paramount has expanded this franchise to include local editions in almost every country.
