In a surprising twist, both “Days of Our Lives” and “The Young and the Restless” took home the top soap prize at Sunday’s Daytime Emmys.

The two popular shows tied to win outstanding drama series. Other top winners include “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” winning the talkshow/entertainment category again, along with Craig Ferguson for best gameshow host and Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan for best talkshow hosts/entertainment.

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences found a new broadcasting home in the cabler Pop, which aired the event live, as opposed to last year’s webcast-only show. Tyra Branks hosted.

    The Daytime Emmys are screwed up! Ellen DeGeneres wins Best Talk Show Ent but Live with Kelly and Michael win Best Talk Show Host Ent . The Chew wins Best Informative Talk Show Hosts but Steve Harvey wins Best Talk Show Infor Why spread the Emmy’s about so uselessly. When you Win the Talk Show the Host should automatically Win. Best Talk Show Host the Show Wins also . The name of the Show is Ellen, Kelly/Michael, Steve etc. What a waste of time.

  2. I think it is great that you Taylor Swift have spoken your mind. And I agree with you 100 percent. Of course you work hard to be where you are 😊. But then again on another level where would you be without all of us little pour people buying tickets and cd’s. So when I am looking for a free ringtone to download can’t you throw us little dogs a bone once in awhile.😊 Sincerely Terrie Simmons

  3. Mary Ann D Alberts says:

    Sorry but there was someone robbed at this award show and that was ALISON SWEENY- SAMI of DAYS OF OUR LIVES. She deserved BEST ACTRESS for more reasons then one.
    I really think you should do a recount especially for her last two shows before her departure.

  4. angelia says:

    Lately I only watch GH when Chad Duell aka Michael Quartermaine is on screen He does such a great Job with his acting but the writting has gone down hill and i cannot stand the scenes with Sonny any longer it seems we go threw the same stuff over and over again you can predict whats coming next!

  5. Rynek pracy w Polsce jest bardzo trudny, a specjalistów z dziedziny prawa i administracji mamy aż za wielu.

  7. Rob Cowan says:

    There WAS a time when I cared about the daytime emmys and I only watched ONE soap, All My Children. I completely agree with an earlier comment. There are only 4 shows left and they couldn’t pick ONE winner? Please. There is virtually no more competition. There used to be five nominees, selected out of….what….a dozen or more shows. Under what circumstances does a daytime drama NOT get nominated now? The same nominees and pretty much the same winners, over and over again. I think it’s amazing that Anthony Geary has had the same job for 37 years. That’s impressive under any circumstances. It’s not surprising though, that he won for the 8th time. He was nominated and winning emmys before some of the other nominees were born. How can a show win for best talk show (Ellen DeGeneres) but the best talk show host(s) be from another show? When Ellen removes her name but not her show from contention, that’s how. People stopped watching this broadcast years ago. That’s why no network or real “cable” service will carry it. Expect it to go back to an internet streaming service again next year and that will only happen if the academy agrees to pick up the tab for mounting the show in the first place. Nobody cares except the nominees and in the categories of daytime dramas, that’s everybody.

  8. Anonymous person says:

    Twice when they were showing clips of scenes or actors, etc. who passed away in 2014, they kept showing the singer longer than the clips. I don’t want to see them singing, I want to see the clips. Glad I only wasted 5 minutes or so watching this.

  9. Kathy Murray says:

    Emmy Awards! Who, what where and when???!

  10. Timothy Palmer says:

    The last 2 years for “Day Time Emmys” have been a big disapointment for the fans of daytime TV.

    The right time and channel should be on a Friday afternoon on CBS, NBC or ABC. I am confident the emmys will have more viewers than they have had over the past 2 years.

  11. DB Riter says:

    I am disappointed that Blake Berris was not even nominated for his outstanding portrayal of Nick on Days of Our Lives. He was clearly the best actor and deserved the nomination and the win.

  12. Karen says:

    It wasn’t a “surprise twist”!!! This same thing happened around 2007 when Guiding Light tied w/another soap.

  13. lisa1969 says:

    If it was gping to be a tie, it should have been GH & Y&R. Like I said, watched dool, but gh drama has been way better. I think it was given to them cause somebody felt sorry for the show and if that was the case, Alison Sweeney should have gotten lead actress award for all her hard, dedicated work to the show, being that she is no longer there. Don’t get me wrong, I Absolutely adore Maura West from As The World Turn & GH, don’t know why dool didn’t pick her up, the ratings may or may not be as bad. Ali was up against some strong talent!

  14. lisa1969 says:

    Dont get me wrong, i’ve watched dool for years, but didnt/don’t think they deserved best drama. The show has been crappy for the past two years. The only good drama was Jennifer and eve on March 3, 2015.

  15. Teri says:

    WoW! I was just looking over the list of nominees and I couldn’t help but notice that “THE VIEW” wasn’t even nominated. Did I miss something, or has all the negative publicity finally hurt the show this year?

  16. Linda Johns says:

    Worst show ever. I think it has been awhile since they aired on a regular channel because this was the first one I have seen in years. You should be thankful you did not see them.

  17. Eddie says:

    It’s very disturbing Daytime Emmy Awards were NOT aired on network cable channel. Slap in the face to dedicated daytime viewers who do not receive reception via “dish” connection. Disrespectful slap in the face.

    • Reader says:

      They used to air them on networks…and the ratings were increasingly abysmal. The vast majority of North Americans simply doesn’t give a hoot. And daytime dramas have been a moribund “art form” for decades — it’s time for some serious format re-innovation/re-imagining. The fact that it is the same old 4 shows getting the same old prizes year after year after year is laughable. Same goes for game shows and talk shows. Daytime television: generally a wasteland of predictability.

    • theresea burke says:

      I TOTALLY agree with Eddie’s statement, it was like a slap in the face for sure that the programs that we the fans so deligently watch daily couldn’t even get to watch their special night!!!!!!!!!!! just awful and I am still upset after waiting with anticipation all week and ending it with such a let down!

    • Donna says:

      Yea! Eddie like you watch thewm..get over it!!!

  18. Hunter King? Really? Whose pocket is she in?

  19. Sharon says:

    Y&R story line strange. 2 Jacks! Sharon a murderer! Please writers get real

    • Paula says:

      Yes, i did not want her to win, i can not stand ger character, Summer Newman on Y&R

    • marilyn Hart says:

      Totally agree with you..have they changed writers recently ? Story lines too far fetched…the murders are stupid too !

      • Michelle says:

        Yes, Y&R has new writers! I agree, the story lines are getting way too off the wall! And way too much drama going on at once…one right after the other! If it wasn’t for Adam and Chelsea’s story line I would have quit watching it at this point! Too bad…I have been watching the Y&R since it’s inception. :(

  20. Linda says:

    Only 4 soaps on the air and two of them tied?? Really?? You couldn’t pick a winner out of four??

  21. evelyn says:

    No wonder the Y&R didn’t come in 1st. The story is so weird. Expecially 2 jack’s played by the same person. Getting fed up .

  22. Fran Michele Drozjock says:

    Congrats to all the winners of the day time shows. With out all of you, my day would be completely empty. Keep up the good work.


    Please do not have Ms. Banks hosting again. She seems only in tuned to hosting on the format of her show which had nothing in common with an award show. I am glad a taped the show so that I was able to fast forward over each appearance or monologue from her.

  24. born in 1955 says:

    I am SO ashamed of CBS, ABC & NBC for not ONE of your channels televising this event.
    These Daytime shows make you millions/billions of dollars a day and you can’t have a proper award show???
    I mean really it was nothing but a glorified comedy show.
    From having it on POP channe, that has a guide running across the bottom of their screens ALL of the time.
    The the Host, Tyra Banks—I am almost speechless that you would let someone SO trashy even be on the show much less host the show!!!
    Everything from the microphones not being tall enough, to a speechless (cheap) dining room or somewhere??
    Surely NOT what “THE DAYTIME EMMY AWARD SHOW” deserved !!!!

  25. sandmarc says:

    I’m glad to see Craig Ferguson win for host of Celebrity Name Game. He keeps things moving along, no lag time and with some humor.

    • Linda Johns says:

      I agree totally with born in 1955. Tyra Banks was the worst ever and her trashy outfits were endless.

      • Blackcurry says:

        That beige outfit she wore looked like she was wrapped in an Ace bandage. She is way too full of herself. Hope they do better next year. This year was an utter mess. Maybe they are incapable of doing better.

  26. Patsy Bryan says:

    I used to enjoy The Family Feud , Now they say anything to get a laugh . Most of the time its dirty . And the host jokes right along . I really hope the other game shows stays clean so family’s can watch .

  27. Every frigging award show is on local tv, but not the Daytime Emmy’s. Real shitty that a lot of us fans cant watch the Emmy’s when us fans are the reason these shows are so popular!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pissed!!!!!

  28. john gaskins says:

    jeopardy is trying to rewrite history not test about it. anyone that does not know manuela on the price is right is missing a world winning babe and the best game show in history.

  29. Bill RThompson says:

    who gives a damn about the 1%
