Craig Ferguson Among Daytime Emmy Award Winners

Last night marked the return of the Daytime Emmy Awards to television with the live broadcast airing on Pop Network, formerly known as the TV Guide Network. Highlights from the 42nd edition of the annual awards ceremony included Days of Our Lives and The Young and The Restless tying for Outstanding Drama Series, Betty White honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award and Craig Ferguson winning his first Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host on Celebrity Name Game. Ferguson bested Steve Harvey, Todd Newton and Pat Sajak to win the award. 

For Outstanding Game Show, Jeopardy! took the title for the second consecutive year, beating Family Feud and The Price Is Right. With this win, Jeopardy! has now won a record 32 Daytime Emmys.  In other Daytime Emmy news, Director Lenn Goodside won a Daytime Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Directing in a Game Show for CBS’s Let’s Make A Deal and The Price is Right's Edward J. Greene, Brian Rushing, Nancy Perry, Jennifer M. Fah, Frankie Le Nguyen and Nicole M. Katz winning an award for Outstanding Live and Direct to Tape Sound Mixing. Family Feud host Steve Harvey may not have won an Emmy this year for the show, but his syndicated talk show’s award win for Outstanding Talk Show Informative for a second year in a row compensated for that. 

Congratulations to all of the Emmy Award winners and special congrats to Craig Ferguson for winning his first Emmy in his rookie year as a game show host.
