Executive Producers Kristen Moss and Andrew Ward started the Reality Awards in 2012 to support, examine and redefine
the art of reality in media by rewarding excellence, encouraging experimentation and recognizing that the public is the heart
of our industry. The Reality Television Awards embrace the spirit of fun and camaraderie which is an inherent part of what
makes this industry great. The RTVAs value the rich diversity of programming that puts reality on the leading edge of
entertainment. “According to The Hollywood Reporter, in 2019 more than 75% of cable TV’s 25 highest rated original
series were Non-Fiction shows. We’re excited to give our industry something to celebrate during these uncertain times,”
says Moss & Ward.

Winners of note have been Ellen DeGeneres accepting for “Best Game Show” and Steve Harvey for “Best Host” in 2019;
Leah Remini, recipient of “Reality Queen” in 2015 and “Best Host” in 2018, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, recipient of “Reality
Crossover Talent” in 2016, Gordon Ramsay receiving “Best Host” in 2015 and RuPaul claiming “Best Host” over

Crew” four years in a row. Abby Lee Miller of Dance Moms has been the recipient of “Best Villain” from 2014-2016 and
Pit Bulls and Parolees took “Feel Good Show” the past three years straight.
Constantly expanding and changing, the Reality Television Awards started a Humanitarian Award that eventually birthed
the Reality TV Hall of Fame. President Donald Trump was the recipient of the “Humanitarian Award" in 2014 received
on his behalf by The Apprentice & Celebrity Big Brother star Omarosa Manigault-Newman. Hall of Fame inductees also
include Heidi and Spencer Pratt in 2015 and Janice Dickinson in 2016. It has re-birthed the Hall of Fame recipient in
2020, who will be named soon.
