days of our lives daytime emmys upset best drama series

"Days of Our Lives" was the surprise winner at the Daytime Emmys, winning two awards during the HLN telecast, which broadcast live from Beverly Hills, California. It won Best Drama Series for the first time in 35 years, and won Best Younger Actor for Chandler Massey for the second year in a row. Combined with the two awards it won during the Creative Arts ceremony on Friday night, it won a total of four awards.

But "The Bold and the Beautiful" won the most awards during the telecast: Best Writing Team, Best Directing Team, Best Actress (Heather Tom), and Best Supporting Actor (Scott Clifton). Combined with the five awards it won during the Creative Arts ceremony on Friday night, it won a total of nine awards this year.

"General Hospital" won a pair of acting prizes: Best Supporting Actress (Julie Marie Berman) and Best Younger Actress (Kristen Alderson). Alderson's nomination and win are her first after 15 years of playing Starr Manning on "One Life to Live" and then "GH." Combined with the award it won during the Creative Arts ceremony on Friday night, it won a total of three awards.

"The Young and the Restless," the year's most nominated program with 23 bids, also won a pair of acting awards: Best Actor for Doug Davidson, a first-time winner after 35 years on the show, and Billy Miller, who won Best Supporting Actor for the second time, but had to share the prize in a tie with "B&B's" Clifton. It won five Creative Arts Awards, for a total of seven.

"One Life to Live" won its only nomination at the Creative Arts Awards, but lost both off its bids -- Best Drama and Best Writing Team -- on the telecast.

"The Dr. Oz Show" won Best Informative Talk Show for the third year in a row despite a strong challenge from freshman series "Katie." However, host Mehmet Oz lost Best Talk Show Host in an upset to Ricki Lake ("The Ricki Lake Show").

"The Ellen DeGeneres Show" won Best Entertainment Talk Show for the third time; before that, "Ellen" had won the combined Best Talk Show category four times. It won six awards at the Creative Arts ceremony on Friday night, bringing its total this year to seven.

"The Price is Right" was the surprise winner of Best Game Show, beating frontrunner "Jeopardy." This was its first win since Drew Carey took over as host in 2007 and its sixth win overall.

Best Game Show Host was also awarded to a repeat winner: "Cash Cab's" Ben Bailey, who previously won in 2010 and 2011. It's his final chance to be honored for the series, which was cancelled by the Discovery Channel last year.

2012's winner for Best Culinary Show, "Bobby Flay's Barbecue Addiction," was back in the running this year, but it was bested by two first-time nominees that tied for the victory: "Best Thing I Ever Made" and "Trisha's Southern Kitchen." A first-time winner also prevailed in the newly created Best Culinary Host category: Lidia Bastianich for "Lidia's Italy."

Best Special Class Animated Program was awarded to "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," which won Best Performer in an Animated Program (David Tennant) at the Creative Arts event. This was the first career Emmy for executive producer and "Star Wars" mastermind George Lucas.

First-time nominee "CBS Sunday Morning" won Best Morning Show, defeating a pair of previous winners: "Good Morning America" and "Today."

"Good Afternoon," written for "Good Afternoon America," won the award for Best Original Song.
