Daytime Emmy Winners: Full List

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.
