Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards Winners: CBS, PBS Pummel Competition
The networks tie for most wins with 17 each, while ABC and NBC only score 3 each
CBS and PBS were the big winners at the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ 42nd annual Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Friday.
Each network claimed 17 trophies, while the closest competitor was Nickelodeon, which had six wins during the ceremony hosted by Florence Henderson (“The Brady Bunch”) and Alex Trebek (“Jeopardy”). ABC and NBC only managed to score three awards each, and were bested by Netflix, which won four.
The most interesting winners of the night, however, were Ray Wise, Donna Mills and Fred Willard, who were locked in the gala event’s first-ever three-way tie in the Outstanding Special Guest Performer in a Drama Series category.
Wise won for his role as Ian Ward on CBS’ “The Young and the Restless,” Mills won for her role as Madeline Reeves on ABC’s “General Hospital,” and Willard won for his role as John Forrester on CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful.”
