RuPaul was not only nominated for an award at Sunday's 69th Emmy Awards, he was an award.

The Drag Race host appeared in a short segment in the middle of the show as "Emmy," the personification of the night's true star: the winged angel. 

Sitting down with host Stephen Colbert, RuPaul dished on what it's like to a be a coveted Hollywood award and the relationship with other awards.

"Do you like Oscar?" Colbert asked.

"He’s cute," responded RuPaul's Emmy. "We actually dated for a little while. I had to break it off, I just couldn’t date a man who’s naked all the time holding a sword." 

RuPaul also offered advice on how to accept the award: "If you win: own it, share it, love it. When you get up on that stage don’t say you’re surprised how heavy I am, that’s just plain rude."

RuPaul's Drag Race earned a nomination for best reality-competition series at Sunday's awards. The host won his first Emmy last year for outstanding host of a reality or reality competition series, and took home the same award at last week's Creative Arts Emmy Awards for the show, which has since moved to VH1.
