Drag Race, Cosmos win TV critics’ awards

Logo’s RuPaul’s Drag Race and Fox/NatGeo’s COSMOS: A SpaceTime Odyssey won the Television Critics Association’s nonfiction television awards, which will be presented tonight.

Drag Race became the fourth winner of the Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming award, following Shark Tank last year. As it turned out, all five nominees were competition series, two of which had previously won.

COSMOS won the Outstanding Achievement in News and Information, and was up against CBS Sunday Morning, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Frontline, and 60 Minutes.

The awards will be presented tonight at The Beverly Hilton at the TCA’s 30th annual awards presentation, which will be hosted by Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews, who previously appeared on NBC’s short-lived reality show Stars Earn Stripes. Here are all the other winners.
