Ellen DeGeneres Steals the Show at Daytime Emmys

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.
