HOLLYWOOD, CA — (09-20-21) — RuPaul makes the history books, setting a record for the most Emmy Award wins ever by a Black artist. The “RuPaul’s Drag Race” TV series’ executive producer and host picked up his 11th Emmy at the 71st Annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night, beating out other nominees including “The Amazing Race,” “The Voice,” “Top Chef” and “Nailed It!” in the Competition Series category.

“Thanks to all of our lovely children on our show from around the world,” the VH1 personality, born RuPaul Charles, said while accepting his Emmy for the show’s 13th season. “They are so gracious to tell their stories of courage and how to navigate this difficult life — even more difficult today.”

“This is for you. And for you kids out there watching: You have a tribe that is waiting for you,” added the 60-year-old superstar. “We are waiting for you, baby. Come on to Mama Ru!”
If that wasn’t enough to give him a two snaps and a twist, the iconic superstar RuPaul also tied with cinematographer Donald A. Morgan at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards last week, for most wins by a person of color.
