RuPaul's Drag Race Snatches A Whopping 14 Emmy Nominations

RuPaul’s Drag Race has once again proved to be a force in television.

The VH1 reality competition franchise snatched a sickening 14 overall Emmy nominations Tuesday morning, beating its previous series-best tally (accumulated last year) by two nods — a record for both the network and the Drag Race brand.

Leading Drag Race‘s list of nominations in 2019 is host and executive producer RuPaul, who makes his fourth consecutive appearance among the Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program crop after winning the category each year since 2016. The show’s 11th season also received an individual nomination for Outstanding Reality or Competition Program, following season 10’s triumph in 2018 as the first in history to win Emmys for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program and Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program in the same year.

Elsewhere, the Academy singled out the World of Wonder-produced project (from the minds of World of Wonder founders Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato) for directing, makeup, casting, cinematography, hairstyling, and costumes, while companion episodes of Untucked, Portrait Of A Queen, and Out of the Closet received nominations in the short-form and unstructured reality categories. Additional episodes of All-Stars 4 — which concluded in February with the crowning of two winners, Monét X Change and Trinity The Tuck — also received a collective nod for picture editing.
