Condragulations mama! 

RuPaul has just bagged his second consecutive Emmy Award for Outstanding Host of a Reality or Reality Competition Program for RuPaul’s Drag Race!

Mama Ru beat out strong competition for the award, such as Alec Baldwin, Heidi Klum, Gordon Ramsay and Martha Stewart.

“I want to thank all of the cast and crew of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and my family at World of Wonder, and the gorgeous people at VH1,” Ru said in a pre-recorded acceptance speech.

“Thank you Television Academy so much, you make this queen so proud.”

In addition to his win, Drag Race also won for Outstanding Costumes and Picture Editing.

The show won for the record-breaking season nine premiere, “Oh. My. Gaga!” which saw the new batch of queens pay tribute to Grammy Award winning superstar – and guest judge – Lady Gaga.

Season ten of RuPaul’s Drag Race will air in the spring of 2018, with the newest season of All Stars premiering in January.
