For the first time ever, two soaps tied the Outstanding Drama Series category!

 

Emmy statuesLos Angeles, CA. – June 15, 2007 – The 34th Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards were presented at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre tonight and telecast live on the CBS Television Network (9-11 PM, ET; tape delay to the West Coast).  The two-hour star-studded telecast featured Dr. Phil McGraw presenting a tribute to legendary game show host Bob Barker, who is retiring from "The Price is Right" after 35 years as host, and over 50 years in show business and whose final episode was telecast that day.

Excited fans were seated on the stage as the Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards were presented.  Throughout the telecast, daytime celebrities were interviewed backstage in the Kmart Studio Blue by daytime stars, including Soapnet’s Lisa Rinna.

Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards were presented for performances and programs in 13 categories, including Outstanding Lead Actor/Actress in a Drama Series, Outstanding Game Show Host, Outstanding Talk Show, Outstanding Performer in a Children’s Series and Outstanding Drama Series.  Presenters included Phil Donahue, Vivica A. Fox, Mario Lopez, Ellen DeGeneres (“The Ellen  DeGeneres Show”), Tyra Banks (“The Tyra Banks Show’), Jerry Springer ("The Jerry Springer Show"), Alex Trebek ("Jeopardy!") and Barbara Walters, Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck ("The View") plus the stars of all the Emmy-nominated daytime dramas.  

Peter Bergman ("The Young and the Restless") and John McCook ("The Bold and the Beautiful") presented the Lee Phillip Bell Tribute Package, honoring television pioneer Lee Phillip Bell, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award. She is the co-creator, along with her late husband, William J. Bell, of CBS's long-running daytime dramas "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful." 

Guiding Light and the Young and the Restless both took home honors for Outstanding Drama Series this year. This is the first time in the history of the Daytime Emmys that there was a tie in this category.  Back stage, both executive producers couldn't have been more delighted not only for their win, but for the win of their fellow soap.  Ellen Wheeler (Guiding Light) and Lynn Marie Latham (Young and the Restless) concured -- after all, both shows were on CBS!

On June 14, Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards were presented primarily in the creative arts categories at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland in Hollywood.  At that ceremony, James Lipton, creator, executive-producer, writer and host of the 12-time Emmy-nominated Bravo series, “Inside the Actors Studio,” was presented a Lifetime Achievement Award.  Lee Phillip Bell received her Lifetime Achievement Award and a special honor to Mike Douglas was presented.

The 34th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards was a presentation of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS). The Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards ceremony was sponsored by American Airlines, Kmart, PURPOSE® and Soapnet.com.  Charles Fazzino was the Official Artist of the 34th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, and created the commemorative program cover.

The 34th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards was produced by White Cherry Entertainment for the second consecutive year.  Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss were the executive producers.  Glenn Weiss directed the special, written by Dave Boone.

The Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards are presented to daytime television programs broadcast between the hours of 2:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M. The eligibility period for all awards was January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2006.

Below is the list of winners in the drama series categories only. Soapdom was there on the red carpet and back stage during the awards show. Stay tuned for all the dish, drama, and our "dressed to the nines" reviews.  Meantime, here's who won!

Past Blast

Arianne Zucker Is Honored To Be Called The 'B' Word

When Arianne Zucker (Nicole) of Days of our Lives meets people on the street and they tell her what a b---- she is, her response is "I thank you very much."

Zucker said, "You mean I'm bubbly? No, I know what they are referring to," she jokingly said. "You know...when I hear that, I feel as an actress I am doing a great job."

Zucker has been on the Days canvas playing Nicole for 14 years. A character that she plays with great depth and to which she adds great color, Nicole is the character that always adds conflict in other people's lives. One never knows to trust or not to trust her.

She personifies mystic and intrigue.
