Daytime Emmy Winners: 'The Bold and the Beautiful' Tops Awards
CBS' daytime drama takes four trophies, with Ellen DeGeneres, Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa among the night's other winners.
The Bold and the Beautiful was the big winner at Sunday night's Daytime Emmy Awards.
The CBS soap was named best daytime drama at Sunday night's show, making it a third consecutive win for the series. Additionally, B&B star Heather Tom took the trophy for best leading actress, while Scott Clifton was named best younger actor for his role on the show.
B&B also won the Daytime Emmy for best direction, tying with CBS sister soap The Young and the Restless. The latter also won the award for best writing.
Among the other acting categories, Michael Park of CBS' As the World Turns was named best leading actor for a second consecutive year, while Laura Wright of ABC's General Hospital won for best actress. Jonathan Jackson was named best supporting actor for General Hospital, while the Daytime Emmy for outstanding younger actress went to Brittany Allen for ABC's now-canceled All My Children.
Elsewhere, The Ellen DeGeneres Show took home the award for best talk show for a second consecutive year, while The Dr. Oz Show was named best informative talk show.
The category for best talk show host saw a tie between Dr. Mehmet Oz of The Dr. Oz Show and retiring host Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa for Live With Regis and Kelly.
The best game show category also saw a tie, with Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune each being recognized. Ben Bailey of Discovery Channel's Cash Cab was named best game show host for the second year in a row, but the host had a bit of a snafu as he was in the bathroom when his name was called.
The 38th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, hosted by Wayne Brady, aired live on CBS from the Las Vegas Hilton.
