‘Reality TV Awards’ Tonight

The Reality TV Awards will live-stream tonight at 11 pm ET on www.rtvas.com, following a red carpet show at 9:30 pm.

Unlike the Emmy Awards, where Netflix and Amazon seem to be everywhere, the Reality Awards nominations are dominated by broadcast and cable shows. Streaming is mostly relegated to its own category – called “Digital Reality Series.”

The nominees for “Digital Reality Series” include three shows from pay services: Netflix’s Chef’s Table and Making a Murderer, and Reelhouse’s The Romance; and six free series — Crackle’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee; YouTube’s Good Mythical Morning, Kids React and My Dream Quinceañera (via Awesomeness TV); and Bravo’s Top Chef: Last Chance Kitchen.

In over 20 other categories, the only nominees from streaming services come in the “Crossover Reality Talent” category, and both are for Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: Julia Louis-Dreyfus and President Barack Obama.

Tonight’s awards show, taking place at the Avalon in Hollywood, will be hosted by star Melissa Peterman, star of the cable sitcom Baby Daddy. Janice Dickinson, whose credits include judge on America’s Next Top Model, will be inducted into the “Reality TV Hall of Fame.”

In addition to www.rtvas.com, you can watch the awards show, starting with the red carpet at AfterBuzz TV or right here:
