For the first time since 2006, Survivor has received a nomination for Oustanding Reality Competition Program at the upcoming 75th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
The nominations were revealed today by Emmy-nominated actress (and Survivor fan) Yvette Nicole Brown and Television Academy Chair Frank Scherma during a virtual ceremony.
In the Oustanding Reality Program category, Survivor is up against The Amazing Race, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Top Chef, and The Voice. It marks the show’s first nomination in this category since 2006 when it was nominated for Seasons 11 and 12. Survivor has never won the award in the four times it has been included.
The nomination doesn’t specify a specific season; instead, it covers both Survivor 43 (which aired in September 2022) and Survivor 44 (which aired in February 2023).

Survivor is also nominated for Outstanding Cinematography For A Reality Program and Outstanding Picture Editing For A Structured Reality Or Competition Program.
The last time the long-running reality series won an Emmy was when Jeff Probst picked up the award for Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program in 2011. Probst also won the same award in 2008, 2009, and 2010.
Due to the potential actors’ union strike, it is unclear when exactly the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards will air. It is currently scheduled to air on September 18 on Fox but could be pushed back pending strike action.
