Netflix has again led all networks at the second annual Critics Choice Real TV Awards, and its series Cheer and Queer Eye topped the winners, each taking home two awards.
Cheer nabbed trophies for Unstructured Series and Male Star of The Year Jerry Harris, and Queer Eye for Lifestyle: Fashion/Beauty Show and Ensemble Cast in an Unscripted Series. The Culinary Show category resulted in a tie, with both Chopped and Top Chef honored. Queer Eye also topped the winners’ list last year.
Netflix won eight awards in all including Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich (Crime/Justice Series), Somebody Feed Phil (Travel/Adventure Series), Love Is Blind (Relationship Show), as well as Outstanding Achievement in Nonfiction Programming by a Network or Streaming Platform. The Ann Curry-anchored Chasing The Cure, about the race for a COVID-19 vaccine, also won; the show is important since it can educate the public about coronavirus in an enlightening and entertaining format.
