“Queer Eye” Wins Outstanding Reality Series Emmy—14 Years After First Win

Can you believe?

Fourteen years after the original won the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program, Netflix’s Queer Eye reboot took home the gold last night for Outstanding Structured Reality Program at the Creative Arts Emmys.

That wasn’t the only trophy the Fab Five snatched. The hit Netflix makeover series also won for Outstanding Picture Editing for a Structured or Competition Reality Program and Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program.

The original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy took home the Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program back in 2004.

Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness was also nominated for the digital series, Gay of Thrones, but lost to Apple’s Carpool Karaoke series.

At this weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys out actress Samira Wiley took home her first Emmy for Best Guest Actress in a Drama Series for The Handmaid’s Tale, and RuPaul snatched his third consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Host for a Reality-Competition Series.

The Creative Arts Emmys happened over two nights this weekend, and both nights will be edited down and televised September 15 on FXX. The 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air September 17 on NBC.

This is just the latest bit of good news for the Fab Five. The third season of the series was filmed this past summer in Kansas City, Missouri, and the stars are busy with their own side projects like Antoni Porowski opening his own restaurant in New York, Tan France releasing a memoir, and Karamo Brown developing his own line of jackets.

Congrats, boys!

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
