From Queer Eye to Tidying Up with Marie KondoRuPaul’s Drag Race and many more – we all could literally spend hours upon hours binge-watching these shows. Reality television and unscripted programming is such a big part of our lives. For many of us, shows like Queer Eye gives us a chance to wind down, relax and enjoy a good show. Other shows like Somebody Feed Phil gives us the opportunity to virtually travel around the world and try out delicious cuisines from different countries with Phil Rosenthal. And, for limited documentary series like EPIX’s Punk, it helps us unleash our inner punk rockstar and maybe even bring out our punk DIY clothing. Needless to say, reality, unscripted and nonfiction programming is as important to us as many of the scripted shows we enjoy as well, which is why the Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards is such a groundbreaking award show. The Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) and NPACT, the trade organization serving the producers of nonfiction entertainment content, teamed up to create the inaugural Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards to celebrate the reality, unscripted and nonfiction content we all know and love.

The first of its kind, the Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards was a great success and took place on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The award show will air on Sunday, June 9th at 11pm ET / 10pm CT on VH1. The spectacular award show was hosted by the fabulous comedian, Loni Love. In addition, Leah Remini was honored with the special, first-ever Impact Award for her awe-inspiring work on the series, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.

Celebrities were dressed to the nines as they made their way down the event’s red carpet. Presenters at the event included Ben Bailey (Cash Cab), Joey Fatone (Common Knowledge), Akbar Gbaja-Biamila (American Ninja Warrior), Chrishell Hartley (Selling Sunset), Terri, Bindi, and Robert Irwin (Crikey!  It’s The Irwins), Matt Iseman (American Ninja Warrior), Lala Kent (Vanderpump Rules), Mark McKinnon (The Circus), Jack Osbourne (Portals To Hell), Alfonso Ribeiro (AFHV), Phil Rosenthal (Somebody Feed Phil), RuPaul (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Colton Underwood (The Bachelor), John and Callahan Walsh (In Pursuit With John Walsh), Katrina Weidman (Portals To Hell), Justin Willman (Magic For Humans) and more.

The night was a big win for everyone. Queer Eye led the winners with a total of four wins at the award show. James Corden was honored with three awards at the event. In addition, Netflix topped networks by taking home nine awards.

The Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards was truly an unforgettable night and one that made entertainment history. You don’t want to miss out on seeing this extraordinary award show, so be sure to set your alarms and mark your calendars to tune in to the Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards airing on June 9th at 11pm ET / 10pm CT on VH1.
