Gays at the Emmys

Since I’m globetrotting, attending the Emmy Awards was an impossibility.  And due to the difference in time zones, I can’t even tell you what happened because I won’t find out until after this column is published.  Instead, let me tell you about the Creative Arts Emmys.  The Emmys’ poor stepsister took place a week before the real event, and it was a gala affair – make that a GAYla affair.  RuPaul won his sixth consecutive Emmy as host of a reality or competition show.  He also made a bit of history – he’s tied for the most Emmy wins by any person of color.  Given that he may have won another award by the time you read this, he may be Emmys’ most decorated person of color – and I can’t think of a better candidate for that title.

Speaking of decorating, Queer Eye also came out on top at the Emmys.  For the fourth year in a row, the show won Outstanding Structured Reality Show.  But their biggest plaudit happened a few days later.  LEGO announced they are immortalizing the show.  On October 1st, LEGO will release Queer Eye – The Fab Five Loft.  They even went out of their way to include Bruley, the quintet’s dearly departed canine companion.
