At the Primetime Creative Emmy Awards ceremony on Saturday, September
8th in Los Angeles, Kathy Griffin received her first Emmy Award for
“Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List.” The show won an Emmy Award in
the Outstanding Reality Program category.
Other shows in the category included "Antique Road Show," "Dog Whisperer with Cesar Milan," "Extreme Makeover Home Edition" and "Penn & Teller: Bull****." In her acceptance speech Griffin said, "A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this. He had nothing to do with this,. this award is my God now."
The only cable network to dominate this category, Griffin’s Emmy marks Bravo’s third win in five years for the Outstanding Reality Program category, ("Cirque Du Soleil: Fire" in 03 and "Queer Eye" in 04).
"We’re simply thrilled for Kathy," said Lauren Zalaznick, President Bravo Media. "We may call the show D-List, but she’s always been A-List to us and Saturday night confirmed it."
"D-List" is produced by Picture This. "Cirque Du Soleil" is a Productions Conte Inc. production in association with Bravo Network and CBC.
