Susan Haskell wins Lead Actress. (Soaps.com)
9:14: Sandra Oh from "Grey's Anatomy" presents the 40th Anniversary of "Sesame Street."
9:17: As the "Sesame Street" clip goes on, who do you want to see win Outstanding Actor and Actress? I'd like to see Thorsten Kaye or Peter Reckell win for Actor and just to shake things up a bit, Debbie Morgan win for Actress. I'm thinking Jeanne Cooper or Susan Haskell will win the latter though.
9:19: "Sesame Street" gets a standing ovation as the cast sings and the crowd joins in.
9:20: "Sesame Street" certainly deserves their Lifetime Achievement Award, but I'm looking forward to the Guiding Light tribute!
9:28: Vanessa Williams sings again. Not entirely sure why.
9:30: Now Gilles Marini is dancing with Vanessa. Why isn't he dancing with Kelly Monaco or Susan Lucci?
9:31: Not sure what the point of that was, if no one from Daytime was going to be involved. Bradford Anderson could have sung.
9:32: Outstanding Talk Show Host goes to The View. No hosts were in attendance. I wonder why?
9:33: General Hospital just won for Outstanding Writing.
9:35: GL tribute is coming up next! I hope they do it justice and have someone who is connected to the show or at least Daytime present it.
9:37: So far Kristen Alderson has stuck out for me as looking the best. How about you? I just love her blonde hair!
9:39: Cameron Matheson and Melissa Egan present Game Show Host. Why didn't he dance with Vanessa? Meredith Vieira wins, but is not there.
9:40: Betty White comes out to honor Guiding Light. She makes self deprecating jokes about her age, but also talks up GL's history. At least Betty is a TV icon and has been on B&B. Glad Dr. Phil isn't presenting this.
9:42: Reva's in the fountain in the clip package!
9:43: The clip package should have been longer, but now the cast is on stage and getting a standing O.
9:48: Patrick Duffy presents Lead Actress. Susan Haskell from OLTL wins.
9:49: She gives Thorsten Kaye a shout out. Sweet!
9:50: I can't believe that's all GL got. They should have axed Vanessa's song and given a longer tribute.
9:51: Susan Lucci just announced Christian LeBlanc for Lead Actor. He's crying. Awww...
9:55: Dr. Phil and his wife again to present B&B's clip package.
9:56: It's funny how much you forget from the past year. Donna drenched in honey was definitely a hilarious highlight.
9:57: B&B wins their first Outstanding Drama Series Emmy!
9:58: Sadly, we will not hear what Brad Bell has to say about winning as the credits are rolling and music is playing. Wow! How sad.
9:59: So basically Vanessa Williams who has nothing to do with Daytime got more acknowledgement than the Outstanding Daytime Drama or the show that's going off the air after 72 years. Nice.
10:02: What did you think of the show? Let us know your thoughts on who won and on the production as a whole below!
Thanks for following the Daytime Emmys with Soaps.com! I had fun recapping the night and adding my two cents. I hope you did too!
Congrats to all the winners!
