RuPaul Wins 4th Consecutive Emmy Award For ‘Outstanding Host’

For the fourth year in a row, RuPaul has snatched up the Emmy Award for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program.

From the Hollywood Reporter:

Backstage, RuPaul explained he was “having a hard time putting words together,” but he ultimately expressed his gratitude for the win and the art of drag.

“I show up to work because I love drag queens, love dramatic people, love being around people who march to a different drummer,” RuPaul said.

He later added, “Drag is dangerous. Drag is not politically correct,” he said. “I know people say, ‘You’re mainstream,’ but drag will never be mainstream.”

Drag Race was up for 14 awards at this year’s ceremony. The show made history in 2018, becoming the first series to win best reality host and best reality competition program in the same year.

The show was recently renewed for a 12th season on VH1, as well as spinoff RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, which was greenlit for a fifth season.
