RuPaul's Drag Race breaks history AGAIN with 8th consecutive Emmy's win

RuPaul took home the Creative Arts Emmy Award for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program. The win is the eighth consecutive time RuPaul has won for his hosting gig on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

The self-named ‘Queen of Drag’ himself was there in person to accept the award while attending the 75th Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles. His eighth win maintains his status as the most awarded host in Emmy’s history as well as the most Emmy wins of any person of color.



The Drag Race star, who has won the award every single year since 2016, beat out the likes of Nicole Byer (Nailed It), the Queer Eye team, Amy Poehler (Making It), Padma Lakshmi (Top Chef), and the Baking It team.

“I’m so proud to be part of this medium, you invited me to be a part of this. You are my family,” he said during his acceptance speech. 

 After sharing his rough experience coming up in the industry, RuPaul told the audience, “I want to tell all these kids out here in the business, remember who you are. Do not give up. Stick with it, kiddo, and remember who you are.”



 Mama Ru will have another opportunity to snag an Emmy for RuPaul’s Drag Race at the upcoming 75th Primetime Emmy Awards on January 15. 

There, the beloved series is nominated for the Outstanding Competition Program and will be going up against giants like The Amazing Race, The Voice, Top Chef, and Survivor. 

In the meantime, be sure to catch new episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 16 airing Fridays at 8/7c on MTV and streaming on Paramount+.
