The Voice is one of only three shows to win the category, which has mostly been dominated by The Amazing Race since the category's inception in 2003. Race, which was a nominee again this year, has won the award 10 times, including seven consecutively. Top Chef, also a nominee this year, ended its streak in 2010. The Voice also won in 2013, in addition to its three-peat triumphs.
They beat out dark horse hopeful RuPaul's Drag Race even though RuPaul took home a second straight reality host Emmy at last week's Creative Arts Awards. It continued the streak that winning best host doesn't lead to a series win. No reality program series winner has gotten their host an Emmy since the host category was created in 2008.
