The increasingly-popular series took home the award for Outstanding Reality Competition Series at today’s ceremony. 

The award was introduced in 2003, and previous winners include The Amazing Race, Project Runway and The Voice

The latest season of RuPaul’s was the biggest ever, earning 10 Emmy nominations in total, plus another two for the aftershow, Untucked

Creator and host, RuPaul, also celebrated his third consecutive win, for Outstanding Reality host. 

He made a special shout out to “all of the dreamers out there. If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else? Now let the music play!” 

The show has already begun casting for Season 11, and RuPaul promises we can expect more great things.
