Entertainment Weekly reports:
RuPaul’s Drag Race finally topped the competition, snatching the Emmy for Outstanding Reality-Competition Series — marking the fourth show ever to win the category since the prize was introduced in 2003. Previous winners include The Amazing Race (10), The Voice (4) and Top Chef (1). The VH1 series beat out The Amazing Race, American Ninja Warrior, Project Runway, Top Chef and The Voice.
The win follows the series’ biggest season ever — its 10th(!) — reaching a ratings high after moving from Logo to VH1 and earning 10 Emmy nominations plus another two for its aftershow, Untucked. During the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which were handed out Sept. 8-9, RuPaul’s Drag Race won four Emmys, including RuPaul’s third consecutive win for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program. The show has won a total of nine Emmys since first being nominated in 2015.
