It was a great night for queer media at Sunday's 70th Creative Arts Emmy Awards, where both Netflix's Queer Eye, and VH1's RuPaul's Drag Race took home their own awards!

Queer Eye, the feel-good makeover series (and reboot of Bravo’s classic Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) took the stage for Best Structured Reality Program, beating out the likes of Shark Tank and Antiques Roadshow.

"This show is so important, thank you for what this fab five are doing to help the LGBT movement," Queer Eye creator and executive producer David Collins said during his acceptance speech.

Drag Race's very own RuPaul Charles was also awarded with his third Emmy for Outstanding Host, an achievement that got Charles and the crowd's spirits up and shaking with everybody chanting "Everybody say love!" at the end of his acceptance speech.

"Our show is about love and the tenacity of the human spirit," said Charles. "We are so happy to present all these queens to the world."

Both Queer Eye and RuPaul's Drag Race have already been renewed for more seasons on Netflix and VH1 respectively.
