Daytime Emmys: B&B and Y&R Dominate, GH's Ex-Lulu Wins, Days Is Named Best Drama

The 40th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were held Sunday night in Beverly Hills, hosted by Sam Champion (Good Morning America) and HLN personalities Robin Meade and A.J. Hammer.

CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful boasted the biggest haul, translating its 15 nominations into nine total Emmys, including for Writing, lead actress Heather Tom and five Creative Arts trophies collected on Saturday.

Sister sudser The Young and the Restless — which went into this year’s awards with the most nominations, 23 — wound up with seven wins, including for Lead Actor/first-time gold-grabber Doug Davidson.

Days of Our Lives was named best drama. One Life to Live earned one Emmy, tying General Hospital for Multiple Camera Editing on Saturday night.

On the “interesting” side, GH‘s former Lulu, Julie Marie Berman, nonetheless won for Supporting Actress, while Kristen Alderson earned her first Emmy, in the Younger Actress race, for playing Starr — a character that has since been yanked away from her by the One Life to Live reboot/legal flapdoodle.

Among the telecast’s highlights, and there were so few: Corbin Bernsen dropping the S-word and an F-bomb while imagining what his late mother, Y&R legend Jeanne Cooper, must be thinking about this year’s ceremony (namely, her being a part of the In Memoriam tribute); and Carrie Fisher dropping acid… jokes before getting to hand an Emmy to her onetime Star Wars boss, George Lucas (accepting for The Clone Wars).
