Ellen DeGeneres, Chandler Massey are Daytime Emmy Awards winners
Ellen DeGeneres captured another Emmy for best entertainment talk show at the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and Chandler Massey took home his third consecutive Emmy for his portrayal of a gay character on a daytime soap opera.
“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” received its eighth trophy as outstanding entertainment talk show at the awards ceremony Sunday in Beverly Hills.
Massey, best known for his portrayal of Will Horton on “Days of our Lives,” but who left the show in December, won the award for Younger actor in a drama series, his third consecutive win in that category.
The “Steve Harvey” show was honored as outstanding informative talk show, while Harvey won as best game show host for “Family Feud.”
CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” captured six awards, including honors for best drama series and best lead actor for star Billy Miller. Eileen Davidson of NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” was named best drama series actress.
ABC’s “Good Morning America” won the best morning program Emmy.
The Daytime Emmys introduced new awards for Spanish-language shows. Trophies went to Telemundo’s “Un Nuevo Dia” as best morning program, to CNNE’s “Clix” as best entertainment show and to Rodner Figueroa of Univision’s “El Gordo y la Flaca” as best daytime talent in Spanish.
CBS, which received eight creative arts Daytime Emmys for technical achievements at a ceremony last week, emerged as the network leader with a total of 14 awards after Sunday’s ceremony.
PBS received a combined 13 awards, with six for HUB Network; five for TOLN.com; four for ABC and three for NBC.
The ceremony, which aired on the cable news channel HLN last year and in 2012 after losing its longtime home on the broadcast networks, this year settled for streaming the proceedings online. The change in fortune reflects the dwindling daytime audience and programming shifts.
Kathy Griffin hosted Sunday’s ceremony, with Billy Bush and Mario Lopez among the presenters.
