The Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out Sunday in Pasadena.

A slew of trophies were presented at the 46th annual ceremony, which took place at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.

Chef Jacques Pepin and Judge Judy Sheindlin were honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards during the ceremony. Amy Poehler made a surprise appearance to present Sheindlin with her award.

In addition, Kathie Lee Gifford was honored for her decades of work in daytime TV, including on Live With Regis and Kathie Lee and Today, which she exited this year. The show also dedicated a segment to Extra, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

Alex Trebek also won the award for best game show host, just two months after revealing his stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

Mario Lopez (Extra) and Sheryl Underwood (The Talk) hosted the show. The Caleb Nelson Daytime Band provided music, with a special musical performance by Roslyn Kind.

Sunday's show streamed on the Daytime Emmys' Twitter page, Facebook page, YouTube and at EmmyOnline.TV, starting at 5 p.m. PT. You also can watch it here.
