The 51st annual Daytime Emmy Award winners

Jun 10, 2024

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced the winners of the 51st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, held tonight at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in historic downtown Los Angeles. The ceremony was broadcast live on CBS at 8:00 PM ET/PT and streamed on Paramount+. This year marked the 18th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards, more than any other network.

“Entertainment Tonight’s” Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner hosted the ceremony, which featured a special performance by Jerry O’Connell and Amanda Kloots of The Talk. 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.

Additional highlights of the evening included Dick Van Dyke becoming the oldest-ever winner of a Daytime Emmy for Guest Performance In A Daytime Drama Series for Days of our Lives; Be My Guest with Ina Garten received its first Emmy for Culinary Series. The Kelly Clarkson Show won the Daytime Talk Series category for the fourth consecutive time, while Entertainment Tonight took the Entertainment News Series trophy for the fifth consecutive time.

“Tonight, we celebrated the remarkable achievements of daytime television’s finest. Our broadcast was filled with unforgettable moments, including the recognition of Melody Thomas Scott and Edward J. Scott, shining examples of the enduring legacy and exceptional contributions within our industry,” exclaimed Adam Sharp, President & CEO of NATAS.

A star-studded lineup of presenters from the world of daytime included Kristos Andrews, Lidia Bastianich , Steve Burton, Derrick Campana, Kelly Clarkson, Stefan Dennis, Zooey Deschanel, Scott Evans, Jackée Harry, Amelia Heinle, Star Jones, Annie Jones, Christel Khalil, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, Eric Martsolf, Kiara Liz, Danielle Pinnock, Melvin Robert, Lawrence Saint-Victor, Jonathan Scott, Laura Wright and Dr. Rae Wynn-Grant. In addition, an In Memoriam segment paid tribute to the stars and contributors that were lost this year.

The Daytime Emmy Awards have recognised outstanding achievement in television programming and crafts since 1974, honoring work in a variety of categories, including daytime dramas, talk shows, instructional programming, hosting, and legal/courtroom programs. In 2021, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and the Television Academy jointly announced plans to realign the Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards to be organised by content genre, as opposed to program airtime. In addition, in recognition of the marked increase in content and entries for children’s programming, 2022 was the first annual Children’s & Family Emmy Awards, with relevant categories separating from the Daytime Emmys into their own competition and ceremony.

The 51st Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards is produced by NATAS and Associated Television International (ATI), which produced Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies on The CW in 2009 and on CBS in 2010, 2011, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023. Adam Sharp and Lisa Armstrong are executive producers from NATAS, while David McKenzie is executive producer from ATI.

All awards are judged by a pool of more than 1,000 peer professionals from across the television industry, whose confidential ballots were then tabulated by the independent accounting firm of Lutz & Carr, LLP.
