'Queer Eye' Wins Three Emmys, Including Best Structured Reality Program
Following a stratospheric, star-rising year of positive affirmations, French tucks and lots of guac, the Fab Five can finally rest on their laurels.
Queer Eye -- the wildly endearing, wildly fun Netflix reboot of the groundbreaking mid-2000s cable show -- has nabbed itself a hat trick of Emmys this weekend at the 70th Primetime Creative Arts Emmys.
In the span of six months, Queer Eye has churned out two seasons and became a cultural fixture in the process by rebuilding the lives of well-intentioned but unkempt men. It was nominated for four Emmys, and won three: Outstanding Structured Reality Program, Outstanding Picture Editing for a Structured or Competition Reality Program and Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program. It beat out longtime awards show heavyweights in these categories, including The Voice and Shark Tank.
“Love and inclusion takes front stage,” tweeted Queer Eye foodie Antoni Porowski soon after the Queer Eye guys emerged victorious in the Emmys.
Queer Eye will return for its third season sometime in 2019. Its renewal was announced in July, soon after its Emmy nominations were revealed.
