Ellen DeGeneres stole the show at last night's Daytime Emmys, winning the Best Talk Show Host award for the third year running.

After picking up her first prize--the comedienne's show also won the Best Talk Show award--DeGeneres praised presenter Rosie O'Donnell, who quit talk show The View after a bust-up with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

She said, "I liked what she did. This was the year she should have won. I wanted to acknowledge Rosie because she has done a lot."

Other winners included the newly retired Bob Barker for Best Game Show Host.

The Best Soap Award was split between two nominees for the first time ever--after judges couldn't decide a winner from Guiding Light and The Young and the Restless.

The Best Performer in a Children's Series category was also split--between Sesame Street's Oscar the Grouch and Elmo, played by Caroll Spinney and Kevin Clash.

Last night's ceremony took place at Hollywood's Kodak Theatre--the home of the Academy Awards.
