The Real TV Awards “recognize excellence in nonfiction, unscripted and reality programming across broadcast, cable and streaming platforms.” Nominees were chose by blue-ribbon committees comprised of Critics Choice Association members with expertise in nonfiction, unscripted and reality programming.

Winners will be chosen by a vote of the CCA membership, while fans can vote in four categories: male and female stars of the year, best ensemble cast and best show host. The winners will be announced at a gala ceremony set for June 15 at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

“The historic strikes by the WGA and SAG/AFTRA necessitated a record amount of unscripted programming in all areas of television, from broadcast to cable to streaming, making the last 12 months a remarkable time for reality TV,” Critics Choice Association TV branch vp Ed Martin said. “The depth and diversity of our nominees for the sixth annual Real TV Awards reflects the importance and ever-increasing scope of the genre, which continues to offer something for everyone.”
