But it wasn't all bad for DeGeneres -- her daily talk show pulled back by picking up four awards during the night.

Fellow talk-show hosts Rachael Ray and Tyra Banks also walked away with prizes, winning Best Entertainment and Best Informative program for their respective TV shows.

Soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful took Best Drama, while Best Actor went to The Young and the RestlessChristian LeBlanc and Susan Haskell, from One Life to Live, was named Best Actress.

Haskell was also celebrating after her show scooped the most awards of the night, tied with All My Children -- winning five Emmys in total.

PBS' Sesame Street received the lifetime achievement award in recognition of its 40-year run.

The ceremony was hosted by Ugly Betty star Vanessa Williams at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles.
