Among the other sudsers, CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful and ABC’s General Hospital amassed four total wins apiece. NBC’s Days of Our Lives claimed a pair of prizes, while The Bay The Series was named Outstanding Digital Drama Series.
Of note, B&B‘s Heather Tom, with her Lead Actress win, tied One Life to Live vet Erika Slezak’s record for the most career Daytime Emmy wins (six).
Jeopardy! led all game shows with three total wins, while The Kelly Clarkson Show topped all talkers by grabbing gold in three categories — and marking Clarkson’s first Emmy win.

Friday’s presentation — hosted by the ladies of The Talk and broadcast on CBS — marked the first time the annual kudoscast had aired on a major television network since 2015, with recipients and special guests appearing from their homes.
