Over the weekend, RuPaul won his eighth consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program. The host of RuPaul’s Drag Race remains the most-awarded reality show host at the Emmys.


RuPaul Wins Another Emmy for Outstanding Host

“I’m so proud to be a part of this medium, you invited me to be a part of this. You are my family,” RuPaul said in his acceptance speech, according to Variety. He thanked his family, as well as World of Wonder producers Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey.

RuPaul also recalled a time when he was “at the bottom,” sleeping on his friend Larry Tee’s couch. Tee apparently told him, “These are terrible times. Remember who you are, don’t give up.” RuPaul said he would give the same advice to “all these kids out here in the business.”

Also nominated in the Outstanding Host category were the hosts of Queer Eye (Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Tan France, Bobby Berk, and Jonathan Van Ness); Nicole Byer from Nailed It!; Padma Lakshmi from Top Chef; and Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph from Baking It.


During this weekend’s ceremony, RuPaul’s Drag Race also earned an Emmy for Outstanding Picture Editing for a Structured Reality or Competition Program.
