Longrunning U.S. soap The Bold And The Beautiful, comedienne Ellen Degeneres and movie mogul George Lucas were among the big winners at the 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday (16Jun13), each taking home top honours. The Bold and the Beautiful's Heather Tom was named Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for the second consecutive year, while her co-star Scott Clifton was jointly awarded Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series alongside The Young and the Restless' Billy Miller. The creative talent behind The Bold and the Beautiful scored both the writing and directing accolades in the Outstanding Drama Series team categories, but the coveted Outstanding Drama Series award went to Days of Our Lives. Lucas celebrated his first Emmy win for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which was named Outstanding Special Class Animated Program, and accepted the award from Princess Leia, actress Carrie Fisher. There were no surprises in the Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment category - that accolade went to The Ellen DeGeneres Show for the seventh time, beating Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters' The View and rival panel show The Talk, which features Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler and Sara Gilbert. The Young and the Restless icon Jeanne Cooper, who died last month (May13), was gone but not forgotten at the 40th annual ceremony - she was remembered during the In Memoriam segment, which was introduced by her son, actor Corbin Bernsen. The Los Angeles event, which celebrates the best in daytime programming as voted for by members of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, was not the smoothest of ceremonies - Aisha Tyler was given the wrong envelope as she presented the best informative talk show award and had to stall as the correct one was located, while a pre-taped tribute reel for Lifetime Achievement honouree Monty Hall had to be cut off after the beloved game show veteran was called to the stage early. The main list of winners at the 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards is as follows: Outstanding Drama Series: Days of Our Lives Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series: Heather Tom (The Bold and the Beautiful) Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series: Doug Davidson (The Young and the Restless) Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series: Julie Marie Berman (General Hospital) Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series: Scott Clifton (The Bold and the Beautiful) & Billy Miller (The Young and the Restless) Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series: Kristen Alderson (General Hospital) Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series: Chandler Massey (Days of Our Lives) Outstanding Morning Program: CBS Sunday Morning Outstanding Culinary Program: Best Thing I Ever Made & Trisha's Southern Kitchen Outstanding Game Show: The Price Is Right Outstanding Game Show Host: Ben Bailey - Cash Cab Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment: The Ellen DeGeneres Show Outstanding Talk Show/Informative: The Dr. Oz Show Outstanding Talk Show Host: Ricki Lake, The Ricki Lake Show Outstanding Original Song: Good Afternoon by Little Big Town, from Good Afternoon America Lifetime Achievement: Monty Hall & Bob Stewart.
