The Daytime Emmy Awards: Ellen Won Again

June 21st, 2008 // 6 Comments

Surprising no one, Ellen DeGeneres took home her fourth Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host last night at the 35th Annual Emmy Awards. She beat out Regis & Kelly and Barbara Walters’ crew. As long as Elisabeth Hasselbeck went home empty-handed, we’re good.

“I never take this for granted…Every single year, I know people joke
about it…It’s not what we do it for but it feels so good,” DeGeneres
said. She had kind of a nutty year, what with working during the writer’s strike and that whole weird crying over the dog thing.

Tyra Banks won her first Emmy in a new category, Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host. So, hosts that will burn their bras and tell you to kiss their fat ass? Actually, yes! Read her acceptance speech:

“I just have a message for everybody out there: When you have a dream,
there are going to be so many people out there who tell you cannot do
it, that you are not good enough. And I want you to tell them to kiss
your dimply, flat, juicy, bootylicious, skinny, jiggly, saggy, fat ass!”

Oh Ty Ty.

In the soaps category, General Hospital (yay!) took the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series, One Life To Live won for Outstanding Writing, and Anthony Geary took Outstanding Lead Actor for his portrayal of Luke Spencer. And my heart was full when the ancient Jeanne Cooper finally took home the Emmy for playing millionaire drunk Katherine Chancellor on Y&R! Go oldie, go!

    congrats!!! However, this is not a surprise. The surprise is that she is a very hot member at a dating site. It called richromances.com or something. More pictures can be found under her profile.

    Do you guys know you’re showing black text on a black background in both Safari and Firefox?

    It’s still way better than the Chelsea Handler thing.

    Anne, I have Firefox and it shows black text on a white background. When the page is loading it flashes black on black, only for a second though. Weird?
