Property BrothersVancouver natives Drew and Jonathan Scott, getting increasingly famous as reality TV hosts of The Property Brothers (and Brother Versus Brother, Buying and Selling, Property Brothers At Home, etc.), have been nominated for a Prime Time Emmy Award, America’s most prestigious TV honour. The winners will be announced Sept. 2.

If they win, they will have bested even the “world’s most famous contractor,” Mike Holmes, in one of the most ego-inflating awards events in (sort of) show business history. Holmes has won two Gemini awards (2004, 2009), Canada’s version of the Emmy Awards, but he has not yet snaffled the big prize south of the border. Nor has he even been nominated. That’s a surprise to us.

Now, B.C.’s contractor/real estate agent siblings have a decent shot at bringing home the statuette. But the competition if pretty fierce…

The 2015 Prime Time Emmy Nominees for Best Structural Reality TV Show are:


Property Brothers

Antiques Roadshow


Shark Tank

Undercover Boss

Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
