RuPaul scores historic Emmy win
2016-09-12

RuPaul Charles finally nabbed his first Emmy nomination this year for the eighth season of his long-running Logo TV series RuPaul's Drag Race—and then proceeded to top the competition to earn his ( and the show's ) first Emmy Award at the Creative Arts Emmys on Sept. 11.

Charles won for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program.

This is Logo TV's first major Emmy win and only the second time the best reality show host Emmy has gone to a cable series, following Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn's victory for Lifetime's Project Runway in 2013.

Charles beat out the two-time defending winner, Hollywood Game Night's Jane Lynch, as well as Steve Harvey, American Idol's Ryan Seacrest ( who ended his run with no Emmy ), Klum and Gunn, and Dancing with the Stars' Tom Bergeron.

Charles said the show deserved "condragulations."

Also, transgender-focused project Her Story was nominated in the Short Form Comedy or Drama Series categories, but lost to Childrens Hospital ( Adult Swim ). Her Story is co-written by former Chicagoan Jen Richards ( I Am Cait ) and Laura Zak ( #Hashtag ), is directed by Sydney Freeland ( Drunktown's Finest ), with cinematography by Berenice Eveno. Among the actors in the IndieGoGo-funded production are Richard as well as Chicago-connected actors Angelica Ross and Fawzia Mirza.
