RuPaul

RuPaul made Emmy history in 2020 with the most victories in the reality competition hosting category, not to mention “RuPaul’s Drag Race” becoming the most-awarded reality competition series of all time. Season 12, in which RuPaul serves as host and executive producer, was rated the highest out of the franchise’s entire run so far, as his program has exploded into an empire complete with live events, a residency in Las Vegas and international formats and spinoffs, including an “All-Stars” and celebrity installment, all of which RuPaul exec produces. As the first drag queen to grace the cover of Vanity Fair and host “Saturday Night Live,” he also starred in his own scripted Netflix series, “AJ & the Queen,” and released his 13th studio album, titled “You’re a Winner, Baby.”
