"As The World Turns'" Michael Park and Maura West
The cast and crew behind CBS’ “As the World Turns” went out with a bang on Sunday night, as the canceled sudser picked up three key acting awards at the 2010 Daytime Emmy Awards.
“World” won for lead actress in a drama (Maura West), lead actor in a drama (Michael Park) and supporting actress in a drama (Julie Pinson). A bit of a going away present for the show, which just wrapped its final scene last week.
Beyond the “World” wins, this year’s Daytime Emmy winners included several repeats — including “The Bold and the Beautiful,” which won the drama prize for a second year in a row, while “Cash Cab” once again won for best game show.
It was also a good year for medicine: Mehmet Oz was named best talk show host, for “Dr. Oz,” while “The Doctors” won for bets informative talk show. “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” won another Emmy for best talk show.
