Hosted by Tyra Banks, the ceremony also recognized Betty White, who was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and featured a tribute to the late Joan Rivers.

"The daytime television community saved her," Rivers' daughter Melissa told the audience. "With their support and encouragement, she created her daytime talk show. It ran for five years, and brought her the only Emmy she would ever win. This strong foundation reinvigorated her career. My mother felt loved and valued by the daytime community. For that, I will always be grateful."
