The Daytime Emmys: The Bold, the Beautiful and the Cash Cab (See Who Won)

The Daytime Emmys: The Bold, the Beautiful and the Cash Cab (See Who Won) Fortune really does favor the Bold, apparently. And the Beautiful.

While "General Hospital" lead the pack with 21 award nominations at this year's edition of The Daytime Emmy Awards, followed by "The Young and the Restless" with 20, the star of the day was "The Bold and the Beautiful."

The soap opera picked up the Daytime Emmy for Best Drama Series, Best Supporting Actress (Heather Tom), Best Younger Actor (Scott Clifton), and tied with "The Young and the Restless" for Drama Series Directing Team. Michael Park of "As The World Turns" won Best Actor, despite the fact that ABC is axing the series (along with the suddenly-poorly-named "One Life to Live") to make way for a new daytime talk lineup.

In sort of a weird but cool moment, Best Game-show Host went to Ben Bailey of "Cash Cab." Best game show itself was a tie between "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune," and both Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek received honors at the ceremony for Lifetime Achievement.

Ellen picked up her sixth Daytime Emmy for Best Entertainment Talk Show for "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," and apparently Oprah really is taking some time off, as she was a no-show at the ceremony. Winfrey was honored with a special tribute to her 25 years as the Queen of dayime, but accepted the award via taped recording.

Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa tied with Dr. Oz for Best Talk-show Host recognition, which is certain to result in a warm and fuzzy, witty little bloodbath as the three duke it out for airwave supremacy this season.

Check out the list of winners below. Did your favorite show win? Did "General Hospital" get robbed? Let us know what you think in the comments or on the Yidio Facebook page.
