Share this article:
Los Angeles - RuPaul was among the big winners during the first night of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Saturday (14.09.19).
The 58-year-old star - who has hosted 'RuPaul's Drag Race' since 2009 - won the Outstanding Host gong for the fourth time in a row at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, thereby tying with 'Survivor's Jeff Probst for most wins in the history of the category.
Reflecting on his success, the TV host joked with TheWrap: "I don't know how I feel because my brain is not connected to any other part of my body right now."
The reality competition series also won the Outstanding Hairstyling and Outstanding Costumes gongs.
Another big success story of the night was 'Queer Eye', which was rewarded with four awards in total, including Outstanding Structured Reality Program, Outstanding Directing for a Reality Program, Outstanding Casting For A Reality Program and Outstanding Picture Editing for a Structured Reality or Competition Program.
