The first leg of Emmys week and some of our favorite shows has picked up trophies! We love to see it.
Earlier this week the RuPaul's Drag Race team began racking up wins. Over the past few days they've won Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program, Outstanding Picture Editing for a Structured Reality or Competition Program, Outstanding Contemporary Hairstyling for a Variety, Nonfiction or Reality Program, and Oustanding contemporary Makeup for a Variety, Nonfiction or Reality Program — that latter category meant Raven picked up her very first Emmy. But they aren't our only favorite taking home the wins.
Ahead of the main event Sunday, a few other queer shows have won Emmys. Namely, there's Netflix's Queer Eye revamp which took home Outstanding Structured Reality Program, a category the show has won over the last two years. Oh, and Euphoria and Schitt's Creek both won their first Emmys.
This year marks Euphoria's first year of eligibility for an Emmy and the show racked up six nominations. Of those, they were rewarded with Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics. Going into Sunday, Zendaya could still win Lead Actress for her work on the show. But they weren't the only ones who snagged a first.
Schitt's Creek's sixth season made history this year as having the most Emmy nominations for a comedy in its final season. The show scored a whopping 15 nominations. The nods mark the second year of nominations for the show. That said, last year our favorite homophobia-free fictional town was snubbed. This year, they are walking home with at least one.
Ahead of Sunday's event, Schitt's has already been awarded Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series. The show could still very much win quite a number of trophies though, given Dan Levy, Annie Murphy, Catherine O'Hara, and Eugene Levy are all up for acting nods. May the best Rose win!
