‘RuPaul’s Drag Race,’ ‘The Wall,’ ‘Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath’ Win Reality Breakthrough Awards

MIAMI — “RuPaul’s Drag Race” sashayed to the win for competition reality series at the 4th annual Reality Breakthrough Awards.

NBC’s “The Wall” and A&E’s “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” were also among the programs recognized. The kudos were handed out Tuesday afternoon at the Eden Roc Hotel as part of the NATPE conference here.

Bravo’s “The Real Housewives” franchise won for docu soap. Jerry Leo, exec VP of program strategy for lifestyle networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, noted that the “Real Housewives” concept has endured for 13 years over seven cities and four spinoffs. “I think this is our first award,” Leo said.

HBO’s “The Defiant Ones” and “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” prevailed in the documentary and factual categories, respectively. The trophies were accepted by Emilio Rubio, head of HBO Latin America.

“We are proud of the program that John and all of the team do at HBO,” Rubio said. “The change of culture, the discussions that we present to the audience and the world is something that is very proud for us, and very important.”

“The Wall” won for game show. “Scientology and the Aftermath” won for innovation in programming.

The brief ceremony was hosted by Dan Abrams, host and producer of A&E’s “Live PD,” which was also nominated in the innovation category.
