To announce the winner, the magicians said they would stab the correct name, written on a card, with a knife. At first, they held up a card that read Sucan Lucci, who was famously nominated 21 times for an Emmy before winning for her role in All My Children.

Then Penn held up another card, which Teller stuck with a knife that appeared to be stabbed through his hand. It read "Jonathan Jackson," the real winner, from General Hospital.

Jackson brought his kids on stage. "It's father's day, I couldn't resist," he said.

Heather Tom from the Bold and the Beautiful was announced as best supporting actress.

The show is airing live from Las Vegas on Sunday on CBS.
