RuPaul Breaks Record with Fifth Emmy Win for Hosting 'Drag Race,' Dedicates Win to Late Chi Chi DeVayne

RuPaul is making herstory at the Emmys!

The 59-year-old RuPaul’s Drag Race host won the award for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program for the fifth year in a row at the 2020 Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Saturday (September 19).

RuPual has broken the record for the most victories in the category’s 13-year history.

In his acceptance speech, RuPaul urged fans to get out and vote in the upcoming election.

“Tonight the only political statement I want to make is this: love,” RuPaul said. “Love for our LGBT brother and sisters, love for Black queens and brown queens and love for the United States of America. The time has come for you to vote for your lives.”

RuPaul ended his acceptance speech while dedicating the award to Chi Chi DeVayne, the season eight queen who sadly died last month.

“I’d like to dedicate this Emmy to one of my girls, Chi Chi DeVayne,” RuPaul said. “May you rest in power and perfection.”

RuPaul beat out fellow nominees Nicole Byer for Nailed It!, Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman for Making It, the cast of Shark Tank, and the cast of Queer Eye.
