This year's Daytime Emmy Award ceremony was co-hosted by Mario Lopez and Sheryl Underwood. Judy Sheindlin ("Judge Judy") and chef Jacques P├ępin earned their "Lifetime Achievement Awards."
They saved the category for "Outstanding Drama Series" for last, and The Young and The Restless on CBS was named the winner. They have been No. 1 in the ratings for well over 30 years.
Ironically enough, The Young and The Restless alum Shemar Moore presented this category, and in his opening remarks, he honored his late friend and mentor, Kristoff St. John.
