None of this would be possible it weren’t for the incredible cast and crew of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and my partners at World of Wonder and VH1."

RuPaul’s Drag Race was up for seven awards, including Outstanding Costumes and Picture Editing.

For the Primetime Emmy’s, Drag Race will compete for Best Reality Competition Series.
