Why y'all gagging so?
RuPaul took home yet another trophy at this year’s Creative Arts Emmys.
Last night the RuPaul’s Drag Race host snatched his fourth consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Series. He now ties Survivor host Jeff Probst's record for most wins in the category.
The VH1 series also won Outstanding Costumes for Variety, Nonfiction, or Reality Programming and Outstanding Hairstyling for a Multi-Camera Series or Special.
"I show up to work because I love drag queens, love dramatic people, love being around people who march to a different drummer," Ru said backstage.
RuPaul's Drag Race made herstory this year with a record-breaking 14 nominations, the most for any series in VH1’s history, including Outstanding Reality Competition Series. The show also made herstory in 2018 as the first to win Outstanding Reality Host and Reality Competition in the same year.
RuPaul's Drag Race has already been renewed for a 12th season, and All Stars has been greenlit for a fifth.
Meanwhile, Queer Eye won the Emmy last night for Outstanding Structured Reality Program for the second year in a row. The Netflix reboot also won Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program, Outstanding Directing for a Reality Program, and Outstanding Picture Editing for a Structured Reality or Competition Program.
Hannah Gadsby's Nanette notably won Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special. Other big winners were Fox's live Rent, Saturday Night Live, and Carpool Karaoke.
Recognizing remarkable creative and technical achievements in TV, the Television Academy's Creative Arts ceremony, held last night and tonight at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, will be televised Saturday, September 21, on FXX. The 71st annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air Sunday, September 22, on Fox.
