Watch The Daytime Emmy Awards
The Daytime Emmy Awards are given to series and performers in recognition of their work in daytime programming. The awards show was first presented in 1974, when the separate awards show for daytime series was established after a few awards had been presented in the general ceremonies in years previous. The broadcast had been in the daytime until 1991, when it moved to primetime. The honor of hosting the broadcast of the awards rotates among NBC, CBS, and ABC, and The CW.

The Daytime Emmy Awards News
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."
It's been a really, really, really tough year for daytime TV. ABC cancelled "One Life to Live" and "All My Children," Oprah shuttered her doors, and the morning talk shows were seemingly one giant revolving game of musical chairs. The awards game must go on, though, and they will at The Daytime Emmy Awards on CBS this Sunday. Wayne Brady will host and Pat Sajak and Jeopardy's Alex Trebek will both be given Lifetime Achievement Awards.
