Daytime Emmys Creative Arts Awards: ‘Young And The Restless’, ‘Sesame Street’ Among Winners

CBS and The Young and the Restless were the top winners Friday at the Daytime Emmy Creative Arts Awards, which were handed out at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, the site of tomorrow’s 46th annual Daytime Emmys.

The Young and the Restless scored five nods at the ceremony, which honored the year’s best in children’s and animated programming along with crafts. Baobab Studios’ animated Crow: The Legend and Amazon Prime’s soap After Forever scored four wins apiece.

The syndicated The Ellen DeGeneres Show was one of four shows with three wins apiece, among them for directing and writing. Others with three included HBO’s Sesame Street, which was named Outstanding Preschool Children’s Series; NBC’s Days of Our Lives, which leads all programs this year with 27 total noms; and CBS’ The Talk.

Other marquee children’s programming winners included PBS’ Odd Squad, which won the Outstanding Children’s or Family Viewing Series, and Nickelodeon’s The Loud House, named Outstanding Children’s Animated Series.

Among the networks, CBS had a leading 12 wins Friday, followed by Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and PBS with 10 apiece, the only outlets with double-digit victories on the night. CBS leads all nominees this year across both nights with 61.

Also during the ceremony presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, chef Jacques Pepin was awarded a Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award. Judge Judy Sheindlin will receive the same honor Sunday, when Mario Lopez and Sheryl Underwood host the show.
