Jamie's Food Revolution, the show in which Jamie Oliver went to a West Virginia town, tried to improve school lunches, argued that french fries weren't vegetables, and showed what plus-sized caskets looked like, has won the Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program. Oliver tweeted "I CANT BELIEVE IT WE WON THE EMMY FOR FOOD REVOLUTION!! THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT SIGNED THE PETITION 650.000 OF YOU."
The show beat out favorites Antiques Roadshow, Dirty Jobs, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, Mythbusters, and Undercover Boss, none of which were trying to save people's lives/America/the world. (Well, okay, Mythbusters has probably saved a life or two over time.) Congratulations to Oliver and the Food Revolution team.
