The Bold and the Beautiful, View Ladies and Tyra Win at Daytime Emmys
It was a time for firsts at the 36th Daytime Emmy Awards: The Bold and the Beautiful won its first Outstanding Drama Series statuette in four tries, while the ladies of The View finally won talk show host after 12 nominations.
None of the ladies — Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd — made the trek to Los Angeles' Orpheum Theatre to collect their trophies. Their win prevented Ellen DeGeneres from achieving a five-peat in the category. DeGeneres also lost the talk show entertainment trophy for the second year in a row to Rachael Ray.
The Tyra Banks Show repeated as well in the talk show informative race.
Departing soap Guiding Light collected a supporting actor statuette for Jeff Branson, who tied in the category with All My Children's Vincent Irizarry. Light, which received a tribute during the show, will bid adieu Sept. 18 after 72 years on the air.
Lead acting honors went to Christian LeBlanc (The Young and the Restless) and Susan Haskell (One Life to Live).
The Lifetime Achievement Award went to Sesame Street.
