8:12 PM: Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis "GH,") Katie Couric and other celebs joking about what they do with their Emmy's in a pre-taped segment after the first win of the night. NLG uses it as a whisk!
8:15 PM: Todd Newton comes onstage to present the award for outstanding game show. Newton was last year's winner for host.
8:16 PM: "The Price is Right" wins! This is the 6th win for the show in this category. It has been on the air since 1956.
8:18 PM: Newton goes on to present the winner for best game show host. And the Emmy goes to ...
8:19 PM: Ben Bailey for Discovery Channel's "Cash Cab" - his third win for this category for the now-cancelled show.
8:21 PM: Bailey gets snagged for his interview. He had wanted to be a comedian and talks about how you never know where life takes you. Not that the show is over he is doing stand-up, hosting a new show on GSN and enjoying life.
8:27 PM: The hosts of "The Talk" take the stage to present the award for informative talk show.
8:29 PM: The award goes to - oh no! The envelope she has is wrong! Yet another blunder in this awkward show.
8:31 PM: Finally, the winner is "The Dr. Oz Show." What a catch from Aisha Tyler.
8:32 PM: Don Diamont (Bill, "B&B") and Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis, "GH") present the award for best supporting actor - NLG jokes it took all of them to stuff her into her dress, a showstopping gold number. Hot!
Best Supporting Actor!
8:34 PM: A tie! "B&B's" Scott Clifton (Liam) and "Y&R's" Billy Miller (Billy)! The more the merrier in my opinion.
8:35: Clifton thanks CBS, Brad Bell and everyone at "B&B," whom he considers his family for life. And of course his wife for running lines with him. He wraps it up so Billy can talk - it seems he was unaware that he would have to share his time onstage with Billy and took up all his time.
8:36 PM: Billy takes his turn as Clifton hits the couch. Billy tells Jeanne (Katherine, "Y&R) he misses her. Now they both hit what fans are now referring to on Twitter as 'the dreaded interview couch' to answer questions from Giada De Laurentiis. It seems unclear if Giada was prepped for this role - these interviews are not good and fans are not happy and taking to Twitter.
8:42 PM: A montage of dramatic diva moments right before Kathy Griffin is brought to the stage.
8:43 PM: Her first nod is to Giada's boobs. Totally. Then her reading of the best lines from daytime. Hilarious! The winner for outstanding drama writing team goes to ...
Outstanding Writing Team!
8:44 PM: "B&B!"
8:46 PM: Time for the Lifetime Achievement awards. First up is Wayne Brady to present to Monty Hall.
8:50 PM: Another glitch as Wayne brings Monty out too early and his video clip is not shown. We anticipate the show running late ...
8:52 PM: The show cuts to the glam squad backstage as Karla Mosley, (Maya, "B&B") and Linsey Godfrey (Caroline, "B&B) try out new hair and makeup products.
8:54 PM: Show seems to be having even more technical difficulties as Sam Champion speaks to the crowd but no sound is heard. This goes on for a while before the show cuts to commercial. Yikes!
8:56: Robin Meade comes out to perform Little Big Town's theme song for "Good Afternoon America," one of only two nominees for Best Original song tonight. Seems a little out of place.
Best Supporting Actress!
8:58 PM: "GH's" Kelly Monaco (Sam) and Jason Thompson (Patrick) come out to present for best supporting actress. She looks smoky good. And the winner is ... Julie Marie Berman as Lulu on "GH". Her first win!
9:01 PM: Julie thanks her husband Mike, as well as co-star Tony Geary (Luke, "GH"). She loves him and will miss working with him with all of her heart. She thanks "GH" for a wonderful ride and joins Giada for her interview.
