Kanye West goes hard for his wife Kim Kardashian and her Kardashian-Jenner clan.
During a recent interview with SHOWstudio, he showed his support of the family's long-running reality series "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and defended his stance on the show being considered for an Emmy Award.
"I feel proud to be in a family that has so many people breaking ground for the generations that come. I just feel like reality show[s] that's so f-cking new of an art form. It's like my wife and her family should have had plenty of Emmys by now, but reality shows are considered to be like rap. Like when the Mondrian wouldn't let Run-D.M.C. and motherf-cking Will Smith stay there because they were rappers. Or the idea of a reality star not being allowed into a fashion show or not being nominated for their show, even if it's the longest running thing and the most popular and everybody I know watches it and sh-t."
It should be noted that "KUWTK" could actually be nominated for an Emmy Award. In 2014, the Television Academy added two new categories-- Outstanding Structured Reality Program and Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program-- in addition to Outstanding Reality-Competition Program.
The structured category recognizes shows with a routine, such as "Shark Tank," "Antiques Roadshow," and "MythBusters." The unstructured category focuses on shows that are less about a routine and more about storylines, such as "Deadliest Catch," "Intervention" and "Wahlburgers."
"KUWTK" would fall under the unstructured category, but it seems the Television Academy just doesn't find it worthy of a nomination.
