When it comes to longevity in the television industry, no one does it better than daytime. Soaps and talk shows have been a staple in our living rooms for more than 60 years, and some of them (Days of our Live, The Young and the Restless and General Hospital, to name a few) have been on air consistently for decades. The 51st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, which took place June 7th and 8th in downtown Los Angeles, celebrated the accomplishments of both those in front of and behind the camera. While there were plenty of winners to be had, and beautiful Emmys statuettes to be held, Abbott Elementary star Sheryl Lee Ralph said it best, stating “getting a nod from the academy is winning in and of itself.” The sentiment on the red carpet and inside the ceremony echoed Ralph’s statement. With the buzz among the crowd and the energy in the air it was obvious everyone was excited to be in attendance and thrilled to be celebrating their craft and one another.

The 51st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony was held June 7 and televised on CBS, with the 51st Annual Daytime Emmy Creative Arts & Lifestyle Awards held on June 8 and live-streamed on the Emmys app. Both nights featured fabulous frocks on the red carpet, heartfelt speeches from winners and lots of cheering from colleagues. The team from the Kelly Clarkson Show may take top prize for cheering, when they nabbed an Emmy for best Daytime Talk Series, as their hoots and hollers could be heard throughout the Westin Bonaventure, where the event was held.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner hosted the televised ceremony, which featured a musical performance by The Talk’s Jerry O’Connell and Amanda Kloots.  Lauralee Bell and Eric Braeden from The Young and the Restless presented Melody Thomas Scott of The Young and the Restless and her husband, Edward J. Scott, supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, with the Lifetime Achievement Award. The most notable attendee of the night, who received not one but two standing ovations, was the legend himself, Dick Van Dyke. At 98 years old, Van Dyke won his 6th Emmy and danced his was across the red carpet to talk with reporters afterward. His smile was infectious, and his gratitude warmly felt. When asked about whether he thinks his next trophy will be an Oscar, he joked he might only receive it posthumously. The entertainment world is praying that’s not the case as his talent is worthy of all accolades. Presenters for the evening included  Derrick Campana (Wizard of Paws), Kelly Clarkson (The Kelly Clarkson Show), Stefan Dennis (Neighbours), Zooey Deschanel (What Am I Eating with Zooey Deschanel) Scott Evans (Access Hollywood), Jackée Harry (Days of Our Lives), Amelia Heinle (The Young and the Restless), Star Jones (Divorce Court), Annie Jones (Neighbours), Christel Khalil (The Young and the Restless), Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (The Bold and the Beautiful), Eric Martsolf (Days of Our Lives), Kiara Liz (The Bay), Danielle Pinnock (Ghosts), Melvin Robert (Extra), Lawrence Saint-Victor (The Bold and the Beautiful), Jonathan Scott (Backed by the Bros.), Laura Wright (General Hospital).
