Because our two favorite things are drag queens and judging people, we present the first-ever Drag Race Awards, in which you, the fans, voted on the best Drag Race diva in six different categories!  (Sorry Santino, Ru and Michelle—you can stay home for this one.)

Tonight, during RuPaul’s Drag Race: The Lost Season, Logo revealed winner of Best Meme Girls based on reposts on the the Logo alyssa edwards coco montreseTumblr page. And the winner is:

Alyssa Edwards telling Coco Montrese, “Look how orange you look!

The ever dueling divas beat out Akasha falling on the runway, Manila Luzon’ crossed eyes, Jiggly Caliente jumping into splits and Latrice Royale saying “chunky yet funky”

Below, Coco Montrese accepts the award on behalf of herself and Alyssa. Uh-oh, girl—is this gonna be the start of a new beef between two of our favorite drag divas? (And can we please start calling them “me-mes”?
