Creative Arts nods kick off Emmy season

ABC and PBS tied for a total of 10 honors apiece at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards for daytime TV, with "One Life to Live" taking home four trophies and "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and Food Network's "Everyday Italian" winning three apiece. The event, held Friday at Manhattan's Time Warner Center, comes a week before the 35th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, which will air live on ABC from the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland. The Creative Arts awards handed out mostly were for producing and crafts, though ABC's "Good Morning America" won for best morning program and "Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek received the game-show host nod. Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late Steve Irwin, was named outstanding performer in a children's series for her Discovery Kids nature series, "Bindi the Jungle Girl." Eartha Kitt won as outstanding performer in an animated program for her role in Disney Channel's "Disney's The Emperor's New School," while PBS' "Sesame Street" won as outstanding preschool children's series.
