Just when you thought life couldn’t get any better, actress Drew Barrymore goes and judges a pageant for drag versions of herself.

Appearing on Watch What Happens Live, the actress – who says she was “raised by drag queens” – was asked to judge a contest to find the
best Drag Barrymore.

The show drafted in three professional queens – Sherry Vine, Brooklyn Ford, and former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Mimi Imfurst.

The trio unveiled their takes on some of Barrymore’s most iconic roles.

Mimi portrayed Barrymore E.T. style, becoming Gertie complete with her own extra-terrestrial

Brooklyn Ford took on Drew Barrymore’s ‘Scream’ character, putting on unfashionable ’90s knitwear and getting scary phone calls.

Vine played Jackie Kennedy’s cousin Edith ‘Little Edie’ Bouvier Beale, as portrayed by Ms Barrymore in 2009’s Grey Gardens.

Barrymore awarded the trophy to Little Edie… though unfortunately Vine didn’t win a one-year supply of cosmetics and $100,000.

And you call this a drag competition?
