The 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards took place on Sunday, and the winners ranged from Days of Our Lives to Dr. Oz to Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The Daytime Emmys recognize network and syndicated programming. There were classy moments, like when game show icons Monty Hall and producer Bob Stewart were given Lifetime Achievement Awards. There were also some surprises, like when the ladies of The Talk were given the wrong envelope and when Carrie Fisher talked about dropping acid when presenting George Lucas with a golden statue.

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.

More prestigious than a Soapie, but a little less prestigious than a Primetime Emmy, the Daytime Emmys will hold its 40th annual ceremony this year. The nominations for the 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards were announced on Wednesday morning and perennial favorite The Young and the Restless leads the pack with 23 nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series (helping CBS become the most-nominated network this year, with 50 nods total), while The Ellen DeGeneres Show has the most of any talk show with 10 nominations, including Outstanding Talk Show. (Ellen will dance off against The View, The Talk, and Live! With Michael and Kelly).
Outstanding Talk Show Host nominees include Anderson Cooper (for his since departed show Anderson Live), Steve Harvey, Ricki Lake, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Rachael Ray, while Billy Eichner will have something to shout about: the Billy on the Street host is nominated for Outstanding Game Show Host. He'll face off against Ben Bailey (Cash Cab), Wayne Brady (Let's Make a Deal), Steve Harvey (Family Feud), and Alex Trebek (Jeopardy).
The morning talk show wars will continue in the Outstanding Morning Program, as rivals Today (which includes both Ann Curry and Matt Lauer as nominees, so maybe it should also be in the Outstanding Drama Series category) and Good Morning America will face off against CBS Sunday Morning. Speaking of headline-grabbing nominees, an underage sex scandal controversy didn't stop Sesame Street puppeteer Kevin Clash from being nominated in the Outstanding Performer in a Children's Series for his work as Elmo. (Clash resigned from the iconic PBS program — which is nominated in the Outstanding Pre-School Children's Series category — back in November in the wake of the allegations).
For the full list of nominees, including categories like Outstanding Culinary Program and Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program, here. The 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards will be held on June 16 at the Beverly Hilton and broadcast by HLN.
