2022 Daytime Emmy Awards Winners List – Deadline

General Hospital — already the winningest sudser in daytime history – was named Outstanding Daytime Drama Friday while The Kelly Clarkson Show took home the prize for Outstanding Talk Show at the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards. The ceremony aired live on the East Coast on CBS.

Jeopardy! won Best Game Show with new hosts Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings, while Mishael Morgan made history by becoming the first Black woman to win Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama for her work on The Young and the Restless.

The in-person ceremony at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium opened with a not-so-subtle reference to Friday’s Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. wade. After host Kevin Frazier referenced how well his co-host Nischelle Turner looked in her blue gown, she replied, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.” The comment was met with huge applause.

Later, Drew Carey paid tribute to 50 years of The Price is Right. And Susan Lucci received a standing ovation after she took the stage to remember her late husband/manager Helmet Huber and introduce the In Memoriam segment. It included a performance by Michael Bolton, who sang his 1983 hit “How Am I Supposed To Live Without You.”

Suzanne Rogersof Days of Our Lives presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to longtime daytime star John Aniston. The presentation included a video clip from his daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who talked about how her dad started acting in TV in 1962 before joining Days of Our Lives in 1985. He’s played Victor Kiriakis ever since.

The veteran actor was not present. “We are like a family to him,” said Rogers, who accepted the Daytime Emmy on Aniston’s behalf.

Longtime daytime actor John McCook finally won his first Emmy for starring in The Bold and the Beautiful. He had special thanks for CBS and how its keeping the Daytime Emmys on the air. “It means so much to us,” he said.
