Daytime Emmy Award Winners: Complete List

Emmy Emmys Awards Placeholder

The 44th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were held Sunday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, hosted by “Extra’s” Mario Lopez and “The Talk’s” Sheryl Underwood. “The Talk” won for outstanding talk show hosts, a surprise win which was reflected in their emotional acceptance speech. Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan had won the last two years, as part of “Live with Kelly and Michael”; Ripa is slated to announce her new co-host tomorrow.

ABC’s “Good Morning America” claimed the Emmy for best morning program, one of the night’s top prizes. Ellen DeGeneres won for best entertainment talk show, a win made more poignant because it came on the 20th anniversary of her coming-out episode.

Steve Harvey won trophies for his hosting duties on his talk show as well as “Family Feud,” although he wasn’t there to accept in person.

“Entertainment Tonight” hosts Nancy O’Dell and Kevin Frazier dedicated their win for entertainment news program (their third in the category) to producer Bonnie Tiegel, who died earlier this year. Longtime “Entertainment Tonight” host Mary Hart accepted the lifetime achievement award, paying tribute to her mother, who’d passed away recently.

Scott Clifton, who won for lead actor for “The Bold and the Beautiful,” became the first to win what presenter Jane Pauley dubbed “the trifecta”: lead, supporting, and younger actor.

CBS topped the night with seven trophies, while ABC went home with five. “General Hospital” triumphed with four overall, followed by “The Young and the Restless” with three and “The Bold and the Beautiful” with two. At the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Friday, the top winners included Netflix’s animated comedy “Trollhunters” and NBC’s “Days of Our Lives.”

The show was streamed live on Facebook, where it was watched by 29,000 people at the start of the show, and by 150,000 people by the event’s end.

  1. Bette L. McGinnis says:

    I miss watching them on tv

  2. Sandra Westbrook says:

    I don’t und erstand how the view didn’t win for informative talk show when the cover so many issues and have the most informative guests.

  3. Oma Sinches says:

    Tamar Braxton should have been given a chance on “The Real.” She was a part of their success
    Shame! Shame@

  4. moax429 says:

    Thank the Lord Harry Connick Jr.’s show *didn’t* win *anything!*

    That show is nothing but an overproduced waste of time; even worse, NBC Universal announced Connick’s show has been renewed for another year (I wonder how much he bribed NBC Universal with into keeping it on?).

    On the other hand, it was gratifying to see “Jeopardy” won the Emmy for for Outstanding Game Show. Now *that* deserved it.

  5. ACT says:

    This is NOT a complete list. I would expect Variety of all outlets to be aware of this. There are awards given beyond best actor/actress and programs.

  6. Way to go Steve Burton! Congrats! The writing for character sucked, but your Emmy reel was outstanding! We miss you!

  7. Carol Erlicker says:

    My husband and I watch Kelly every day. She is great at what she does on the show and also is a great wife and mom. We tape it if we are not home. Love you Kelly keep up the good work. I have neighbors that love you also. 🙏🌹🌹💜

  8. Kelly has a new co host now-get rid of Kelly and maybe you’ll have a decent show. She is such a phony and so silly. I haven’t watched since right after Regis left and I was an everyday watcher. She just changed so much and became a jerk. I don’t see anyone staying with her very long but then money talks and they pay their hosts very well but when it came to Regis they they couldn’t find a way to make him happy after all the years he hosted that show. So so sad.

  9. Billy Knowles says:

    It said, “COMPLETE LIST”…….where’s the rest ?

  10. Kathleen LoMonaco says:

    Days of Our Lives is on NBC not CBS. I wish I would have known this was on. I always watched it. It’s a shame how this award show is not being televised for people to watch.

  11. Kaye says:

    When did Days move to CBS?

    • tdspringer says:

      “Days” has not moved to CBS except in the totally unprofessional world of Variety. Considering this was noted yesterday, and they have been doing “live” updates, they have had plenty of time to correct this. They just don’t care.

  12. Peter says:

    Wow another everyone gets a trophy
    Give me a break,how many times do these out of touch snowflakes need to
    Give themselfs a trophy

  13. Under the culinary Emmy, I can assure you that Ree Drummond of the PIONEER WOMAN should have been the winner. I like Eneril, but no one even watches him anymore. Ree Drummond is hands down the best.

  14. i will say there were a few surprises about who won for the daytime Emmys but it is what it is. The Emmys are voted by a blue ribbon panel. If everybody could cast a vote, it would be People’s choice Award which is different. I remember when the soap Opera Digests award were around and the ballots could be found in issues of the magazine. Those used to be fun to watch.

  15. I wish this was on tv. I would’ve watched.
    If GH is the best daytime drama, I shudder to think how bad the others are. (25+ yr viewer, mob/Sonny hater for 20+ yrs)

  16. Mary Ann Dunwoody says:

    You Variety people must be total morons! For every category where “Days of Our Lives” was nominated or won, you listed the show as being on CBS! Days of Our Lives is and has been on NBC for over 50 years. And you’re supposed to be the leading entertainment publication? Not likely.

  17. Danny Jude says:

    It was watched by 29,000 people on Facebook. It used to be aired on major broadcast network TV to millions. Boy, have things changed.

  18. khrish67 says:

    You gotta be kidding! I’m unhappy that The View didn’t win. I love that show……Ahhhhh!

    • Maria says:

      The worst show ever, now that Barbara left. Not all of us are haters of the new administration. Shame on you Whoopy for calling our new president by all the names, but his given name.
      Be happy to live here in the USA.

  19. Chloe says:

    Days of Our Lives is on NBC, not CBS.

  20. Artell Watson says:

    I really don’t understand how they choose the winners. I sure the voting doesn’t show the winners. I think CBS is one of the top networks and have to believe they should have won more. We seldom watch any other channel. I can count one one hand of often we watch other channels.

    • Ruth Deutsch says:

      The people who work in TV get to vote. Each program submits the best sample of that show or performer. You vote in categories that are the ones you don’t work in, to make it fair. I used to work on “Jeopardy!” and I recall voting for TV specials (this was the prime time Emmys). Yes, we did watch the shows in question first. I hope this helps. It’s never about the network, only the qualify of what was presented. Happy to report that “Jeopardy!” has won again.

  21. And John Aniston, Vince Izzairy, Billy Flynn all NBC

  22. Days is NBC – Kate Mansi worked for NBC.

  23. Michael says:

    Umm.. 1st paragraph. Extra host Mario Lopez.

  24. Millie says:

    Days of Our Lives is NOT on CBS. It’s on NBC.

  25. MD says:

    Wow Variety… Maybe you should fact check what network Days Of Our Lives airs on!?!? Hint: You’ve got it wrong in every category they’re nominated in.

  26. tdspringer says:

    LOL…wow….just a hint: Days of Our Lives is on NBC, not CBS….seems you are a tad confused.

  27. Alberta says:

    Extremely happy for Michael, Robin, George, Lara, Amy and the entire Good Morning America team. You all make it happen not just one person. Remember that. It takes a team! Onward and upward! Keep perusing your individual endeavors in addition to the morning show.
