Judge Judy Sheindlin finally got the verdict she's been seeking for a long time at the Daytime Emmys. Her feisty courtroom show may dominate that TV genre, but it had never won the Emmy for Best Legal/Courtroom Program – until now.
"Judge Judy" was one of many surprising victors when the Creative Arts Emmys were doled out at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles on Friday night.
Another was the trophy won by Kevin Clash – Elmo on "Sesame Street" – who is facing his own real courtroom drama while being accused of sex with under-age males.
'The Office' won Best Comedy in 2006, but breakout star Steve Carell never won an Emmy for his role as hapless regional manager Michael Scott. Even in his final year, when he was considered a slam-dunk for his swan-song episode, 'Goodbye Michael,' Emmy voters looked the other way, instead honoring Jim Parsons ('The Big Bang Theory') for the second year in a row.
