‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ leads Critics Choice Real TV Awards Nominations

The show is nominated for Best Competition Series against favorites like The Amazing Race and Top Chef. RuPaul’s Drag Race picked up another nomination for Best Ensemble Cast in an Unscripted Series and is up against Netflix’s Queer Eye. Longtime judge Michelle Visage is nominated for Female Star of the Year. RuPaul is nominated for two awards. The first is Best Show Host and the second is Male Star of the Year. The show recently picked up two award wins at the 2021 Realscreen Awards.

Queer Eye follows RuPaul’s Drag Race with three nominations along with Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, Taste the Nation with Padma Lakshmi, and Top Chef. The Critics Choice Real TV Awards will announce the winners on June 21. The show is asking for fans to help in deciding the winners of two categories.


Female Star of the Year and Male Star of the Year will be chosen based on viewers’ votes. You can vote here for Female Star of the Year. Fans of the VH1 show better get those votes in for Rupaul’s bestie Visage. Make sure you vote here if you want RuPaul to win Male Star of the Year.

The show has had quite a monumental year. It was one of the few reality programs that was able to perfectly execute two seasons of the U.S. version of the show during the Covid-19 pandemic. Now fans have anticipated the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 6 on June 24 on Paramount+. The cast was just announced and it is anything but predictable.
