Daytime Emmy Awards 2022: Full List of Winners is Here

The Daytime Emmy Awards 2022 was quite a star-studded affair as all celebs came together under one roof to celebrate and recognize the talent in American daytime television programming. Continue reading further to see whether your favorite celeb took the trophy home or not.

More details about Daytime Emmy Awards 2022

This year, the Daytime Emmy Awards took place on Friday night, June 24, 2022. The first lot of awards was handed over on June 18 at the 49th Annual Creative Arts & Lifestyle Emmy Awards. The ceremony aired live on the East Coast on CBS.

The 49th annual Daytime Emmys returned for an in-person event at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium just a day after the Supreme Court ruling overturned Roe v. Wade. The awards ceremony was hosted by Entertainment Tonight anchors Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner for the first time.

The hosts of the Daytime Emmy Awards subtly talked about the Supreme Court’s decision of overturning of Roe v. Wade and the assault on women’s rights. Soon afterward Kevin stated that his co-host Nischelle Turner looked stunning as ever in her blue gown and she responded by saying, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.” The comment received a big applause from the audience.

Who was the big winner of the night?

When we talk about the big winner at the Daytime Emmy Awards 2022, it was none other than the soap opera General Hospital. The show bagged a total of five awards in various categories including Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Outstanding Directing Team for a Drama Series, Outstanding Supporting Performance, Actor, in a Daytime Drama, and Outstanding Supporting Performance, Actress, in a Daytime Drama.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that ABC’s General Hospital lead the list of winners from the front. The Kelly Clarkson Show won the award for Outstanding Talk Show and Clarkson took home the prize for Outstanding Talk Show host. Entertainment Tonight was named the Outstanding News Program Winner.

Mishael Morgan made history by becoming the first black woman to win in the lead actress category in a Daytime Drama for her work on The Young and the Restless. In her award-winning speech, Morgan said, “We are breaking glass ceilings left, right and center. We can and we will do this thing called equality and unity together.”

On the other hand, The Bold and the Beautiful’s John McCook secured the award of Outstanding Lead Actor in a Daytime Drama. It was his first Emmy and firsts are always special. He offered thanks to CBS and how it’s keeping the Daytime Emmys on the air.  He said, “It means so much to us.”

Longtime daytime star John Aniston was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by Suzanne Rogers of Days of Our Lives. The veteran actor was not present at the award show to pick up his award. The presentation included a video clip from his daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who talked about her dad’s acting career.

Jeopardy! won the award for Outstanding Game Show

The game show Jeopardy! continued its winning streak as the best game show winner, despite the fact that the show had a tumultuous last year. For those of you who are unaware, let us tell you last year the executive producer of the quiz show, Mike Richards, who had been called out as the host of the show as Alex Trebek’s successor, got fired nearly a week after because of his controversial actions and previous comments.

While backstage, Michael Davies said, “The scandal was, as we call it at ‘Jeopardy!,’ ‘the awkward months. But it showed the power of our audience and how passionately our fans care about the program, which is just so important. ”

Davies went on to say, “What’s happened over the course of the season — Matt Amodio, and Amy Schneider and Mattea [Roach] and Ryan [Long] — really made us just remember how incredible the game is. The stars of our show and Mayim [Bialik] and Ken [Jennings] have done incredible job hosting.”

He continued, ‘”we hope to have a hosting announcement very, very soon. But with all of our plans for ‘Jeopardy!’ — which is more ‘Jeopardy!,’ not less, more versions —we’re going to need multiple hosts to represent the entire audience, to represent the entire country, in order to take this franchise forward.”
