“General Hospital” led night one of the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, winning four prizes — including the outstanding daytime drama Emmy. “General Hospital” won the top daytime drama award for the fourth year in a row.

“GH” took an early lead as proceedings got underway, including writing, directing and supporting actor performance in a daytime drama series (Robert Gossett as Marshall Ashford). While accepting the honor for daytime drama directing, the show’s team paid tribute to Johnny Wactor, the former “GH” performer who was recently killed.

More from Variety

Besides Gossett from “GH,” daytime acting awards were spread out among several shows, with CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” winning two — for lead actress (Michelle Stafford as Phyllis Summers) and supporting actress (Courtney Hope as Sally Spectra). CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” won the drama actor for Thorsten Kaye as Ridge Forrester, who also won last year.

In the daytime talk race, the syndicated “The Kelly Clarkson Show” scored its fourth consecutive win. Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa from “Live with Kelly and Mark” won for talk host.

This is the second year in a two-year telecast deal that NATAS had set with CBS, which has broadcast the Daytime Emmys 18 times, more than any other network. The rest of the awards will be handed out on Saturday, June 8, at Daytime Creative Arts & Lifestyle Emmy Awards. That ceremony will be streamed on The Emmys apps and at watch.TheEmmys.tv.

“Entertainment Tonight” anchors Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were back to once again host the Daytime Emmys. Frazier and Turner previously hosted the Daytime Emmys in 2022 and 2023. The duo is also nominated this year in the outstanding daytime personality – daily category, while “Entertainment Tonight” is nominated in outstanding entertainment news series.

The telecast opened with more CBS hosts, “The Talk’s” Amanda Kloots and Jerry O’Connell, in a tongue-in-cheek song and dance number. Later, the In Memoriam segment kicked off with a nod to late KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin.

Friday’s show on on CBS took place at the Westin Bonaventure hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Major awards passed on Friday include daytime drama series, daytime talk series, entertainment news series, daytime talk series host and the major daytime acting categories.

Among other highlights, legendary star Dick Van Dyke, at age 98, is now the oldest actor to receive a Daytime Emmy win. Van Dyke was nominated as a guest performer in a daytime drama series for “Days of Our Lives.” And “The Young and the Restless” icon Melody Thomas Scott, veteran soap opera producer Edward J. Scott and public TV food host Lidia Bastianich are all set to receive Lifetime Achievement awards.

Effective this Daytime Emmys will no longer include a category devoted to younger performers in a daytime drama; they’ll now be required to enter lead, supporting or guest categories.

The eligibility period for the 2024 Daytime Emmys is Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2023. Here are this year’s winners:

Among this year’s category changes, eliminated is the category for outstanding promotional announcement. Meanwhile, the categories devoted to outstanding writing for a daytime non-fiction series and outstanding writing for daytime non-fiction special have been merged into a new category: Outstanding writing for a daytime non-fiction program. And the daytime program host category has been split into two categories: “daytime personality–daily,” and “daytime personality—non-daily.”

At the 2023 event, which awarded programs that aired through the 2022 calendar year, “General Hospital” dominated the competition, winning seven awards, while “The Kelly Clarkson Show” pulled off six wins.
