‘RuPaul’s Drag Race,’ ‘The Voice’ Nominated for Primetime Emmys

RuPaul’s Drag Race, The Voice Nominated for Emmys
In the Outstanding Competition Program category, RuPaul’s Drag Race and The Voice are up against Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, Nailed It!, The Amazing Race, and Top Chef.
Both shows have won in the category four times each. However, Drag Race has won the past four years in a row, so The Voice has some tough competition. There’s also the chance one of the other shows will sneak up and win. The Amazing Race previously owned the category for many years, but it hasn’t won since 2014.
Meanwhile RuPaul has a nomination of his own in the Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program category. He happens to have won the award the past six years in a row. This year’s fellow nominees include Padma Lakshmi, Nicole Byer, the Queer Eye hosts, the Shark Tank hosts, and Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler.
When Will the Ceremony Take Place?
The 74th Primetime Emmys will take place on Monday, September 12, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. You can also stream the event live on Peacock. The ceremony will take place at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles. A host for this year’s awards has yet to be announced.
