  • PASADENA, Calif.
  • --

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) unveiled the winners of the 46th Annual Daytime Creative Arts Emmy® Awards during a gala ceremony on Friday (5/3) held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. Leading the way with five wins was The Young and the Restless, followed by After Forever and Crown: The Legend with four apiece, and Days of Our Lives, Sesame Street, The Ellen Degeneres Show and The Talk scoring three each.

Topping the network tally was CBS with a dozen, followed by Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and PBS with 10 apiece.

Terry O’Reilly, chairman of NATAS, said the awards ceremony is “an example of the extraordinary depth and breadth of daytime television. It is with great pleasure that we honor these talented nominees and a special honor to be recognizing Jacques Pepin’s culinary career with our Lifetime Achievement Award.”

The Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards recognize outstanding achievement in all fields of daytime television and are presented to individuals and programs broadcast from 2 a.m.-6 p.m. during the 2018 calendar year.
