Has Keeping Up with the Kardashians been nominated for an Emmy?
Keeping Up with the Kardashians has taken home many awards during its 18 seasons and counting, but has it ever been nominated for an Emmy? It’s a popular question we find ourselves asking around this same time each year as the Emmy nominations kick off the annual awards season.
With eighteen seasons and counting, KUWTK has clearly cemented itself in pop culture and television history as one of the most well-known and successful reality series of all-time. KUWTK has long remained a fan-favorite among reality TV junkies; however, the series has never been a critical darling or considered a critically acclaimed series.

Although the Emmy Awards have a number of reality categories, including Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program which showcases achievements in reality programming, KUWTK has never managed to secure a nomination in its 18-season run.
As is often the case for most shows — thanks in large part to the current era of peak TV we’re living in — is the show hasn’t managed to secure a nomination yet, it’s highly unlikely the show will ever manage to add “Emmy Nominated” to its achievements.
What award shows has Keeping up with the Kardashians won?
Although Keeping Up with the Kardashians has never won an Emmy Award and isn’t likely to ever take home an Emmy, the series has taken home many awards over the years.
Thanks to its passionate fanbase, KUWTK has taken home a number of Teen Choice Awards and People’s Choice Awards over the years.
In total, the series has won Choice TV: Reality Show award at the Teen Choice Awards three times (2010, 2013, 2014) while the Kardashians have taken home four Choice TV: Female Reality / Variety Star awards from 2010-2013. Meanwhile, Khloe Kardashian has taken home two People’s Choice Awards for Favorite Reality TV Star (2019, 2018) which is one more than Kim’s total with Kim having taken home the award in 2012.
KUWTK also took home the Best Reality Series/Franchise award at the MTV Movie + TV Awards in 2018.
