“Basically, I grew up in England,” says Cat Deeley
, the vivacious host of Fox
’s dance competition show “So You Think You Can Dance
” since 2006. “I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be nominated for an Emmy. And, to be honest, I love the chance to get a frock and wear some jewelry and have a lovely time. My biggest win of all is getting to host a show I love. That’s all I care about.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Deeley above.
Her fans, however, might be a bit more concerned that the willowy Brit who is quick on her stiletto heels is so overdue for recognition, considering she was nominated five times straight between 2011 and 2015 without a win. Told she is like the Glenn Close
of hosts, and she just laughs: “And here I’ve been Meryl Streep
the whole time.”
