PBS topped all networks with 13 kudos Sunday at the Creative Arts portion of the Daytime Emmys.

Nickelodeson was second with 10 awards, followed by ABC with eight in the ceremony held at the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles. The remainder of the Daytime Emmys will be handed out Saturday at the Beverly Hilton.

”Sesame Street” led PBS with five Daytime Emmys: preschool children’s series, multicam editing, live-action sound editing and direction and writing for a children’s series. That total was matched by ABC soap ”General Hospital,” which brought home awards for drama casting director, costume design, original song, technical direction and episodic promotional announcement.

Nick’s ”Kung Fu Panda” won four Emmys in animation categories: casting, sound editing, sound mixing and individual achievement.

Other directing awards went to Nick’s ”Penguins of Madagascar” for animation, PBS’ ”America’s Test Kitchen” for lifestyle/culinary, NBC’s ”Today” for talkshow/morning and NBC’s presentation of the ”85th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade” for special class.

”Penguins” also won for original song, while PBS’ ”The Electric Company” won for single-cam editing and shared the Daytime Emmy for children’s series with syndicated skein ”Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild.”

More writing honors went to PBS’ ”WordGirl” for animation and syndie talker ”The Ellen Degeneres Show” for special class writing.

Departed ABC soap ”All My Children” went away with an Emmy for multicam editing in a drama series and shared one for drama sound mixing with CBS’ ”The Young and the Restless.”

OWN’s ”Super Soul Sunday” earned the Emmy for special class series, while ”Transformers: Prime” (The Hub) won for special class animated program and ”Style Exposed: Baring it All” (Style) did the same for special class special. June Foray took the honor for animated performer for Cartoon Network’s ”The Garfield Show.”
