RuPaul's Drag Race has been crowned the queen at the third annual Critics Choice Real TV Awards.

The awards "recognise excellence in nonfiction, unscripted and reality programming across broadcast, cable and streaming platforms" according to the organisations website.

The reality competition series won multiple awards at the ceremony held online on Monday, 21 June.

The series scooped Best Competition Series (tie with The Great British Baking Show) and Best Ensemble Cast in an Unscripted Show for season 13, currently available on Netflix.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the season represented the show's most diverse cast, including its first trans man contestant.
