Condragulations, RuPaul and the Drag Race family! The VH1 spectacular received 12 Emmy nominations today. While the show received four nominations in the past (including RuPaul's win in 2016 for Outstanding Host for Reality, Reality-Competition Program), this is a record.
RuPaul took to Instagram to share the excitement and honor.
"Making RuPaul's Drag Race is a labor of love. The fact that members of the Television Academy have recognized that passion by nominating us for 12 Emmy's is a true honor. It take a village, people. I want to recognize the hard work and dedication of my partners at VH1 and World of Wonder, our dedicated cast and crew, and most of all, the amazing queens that help us celebrate the heart and soul of drag. Congratulations to our fellow nominees."
As Billboard reported, RuPaul is once again nominated for outstanding host. The show also is nominated for outstanding reality-competition program as well as outstanding directing, outstanding hairstyling and outstanding makeup for multi-camera special or series, among others. Included in the twelve nominations are two nods for Drag Race's after-show Untucked.
