Days of Our Lives was named best drama series at the 45th annual Daytime Emmys, which were handed out Sunday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. NBC's long-running series also won top honors for directing and writing for a drama, among other awards.

Elsewhere, Good Morning America was named best morning show, and Entertainment Tonight was named best entertainment news program.

The Price Is Right took home the award for best game show, though Let's Make a Deal! host Wayne Brady was tapped as best game show host.

The Dr. Oz Show was named best informative talk show, while Steve Harvey won best informative talk show host honors for Steve. The Talk was named best entertainment talk show, while The Real's Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley were tapped as best entertainment talk show hosts. Judge Mathis won in the legal/courtroom category.

Mario Lopez and Sheryl Underwood hosted Sunday's ceremony, which was streamed online.

The awards show also celebrated its 45th year with several packages looking back at previous ceremonies and honorees. Lopez and Underwood kicked off the night by bringing out Peter Marshall, the original Hollywood Squares host who also emceed the first-ever Daytime Emmys in 1974. Other segments celebrated 35 years of Wheel of Fortune, 55 years of General Hospital and the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.

Meanwhile, first presenter Gloria Allred celebrated the recent verdict in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case by announcing "Guilty! Guilty! Guilty" as she took the stage.

Also at Sunday's ceremony, longtime Days of Our Lives stars — and real-life husband and wife — Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes were presented with a lifetime achievement award. On Friday, veteran producers Sid and Marty Krofft received the same honor at the Creative Arts portion of the Daytime Emmys, which were also held in Pasadena.
