'Drag Race's Raven Just Won Her First Emmy

Raven wins Emmy

It is Emmy week! That's what it has become in quarantine: Emmy week. The Primetime Creative Arts Emmys began on September 24 and end today. They will host another live ceremony Saturday, and then Sunday the Primetime Emmy Awards will air. But, before that gets started, shows like RuPaul's Drag Race will already have an armful of trophies.

RuPaul's Drag Race does pretty well for itself with the Emmy's. The series has won Best Competition Program the last two years at the Primetime Emmy Awards but has won 17 Emmys overall. Of that, RuPaul has won Outstanding Host four times in a row and is nominated again for this year's ceremony. But Ru isn't the only one that's been winning.

This year marks the first time that Raven has taken home an Emmy. Having competed on the show in season 2 and then returned for the first season of All Stars, Raven now serves as Ru's own personal makeup artist, replacing Mathu Andersen. She's functioned in this role since season nine and now gets a producer credit on Drag Race projects as a result. The win marks the first time the show has won in the Outstanding Makeup for a Multi-Camera Series or Special (Non-Prosthetic) though it has been nominated since 2015.

Raven isn't the only one to win. Curtis Foreman, who has been doing RuPaul's hair over the last two years, also won as the Department Head Hairstylist alongside Ryan Randall who is credited as Hairstylist. The pair took home the trophy for Outstanding Contemporary Hairstyling for a Variety, Nonfiction or Reality Program. They follow in Delta Work's footsteps, who used to do Ru's hair and won the category in 2018.

This year the show also won Outstanding Casting and Outstanding Picture Editing this year.
