The 51st Daytime Emmys brought fashion and wins to the stage.

CBS hosted the event, allowing it to be televised live for viewers to revel in what their favorite soap stars were wearing and what they were doing.

The nominations this year were all over the board, and while we had our predictions, we weren’t sure who would actually take home the coveted awards.

In a year affected by writers’ strikes, scribes wrote some of the material the actors worked with and did a good job making it their own.

While there are varying opinions about who won each category, only one can take home the statue.

Here’s which soaps won each category tailored to the genre.

Daytime Emmy highlights

Dick Van Dyke winning as a guest actor made history. He is the oldest nominee and winner. At 98, he has been a part of viewers’ lives and generations of loyal fans.

When General Hospital won for best directing team, the first acknowledgment was to the family of Johnny Wactor. He lost his life last month after being shot by thieves trying to steal a part from his car. Johnny played Brando on the ABC show, and his death hit the cast and crew hard.

The Young and the Restless actress Melody Thomas Scott and her husband, Ed Scott, received the Lifetime Achievement Award. They have worked together between The Bold and the Beautiful and Y&R for decades.

Kelly Clarkson DID win again this year!
It’s a good thing that everyone that was afraid they wouldn’t win again, didn’t stay home, (poor losers) there would’ve been no show!
It’s a bit self centered to not show up because you were tired
of not winning! shame shame

My opinion is that they didn’t want to be in the audience should they lose. About two months ago she said on Live they were Number One. They were confident they were going to win. Something changed their mind (Kelly & Mark).

It looked poor for no one to show up….Even their Managers, etc.

I watched the entire Awards Show and there were several folks who looked disappointed and upset with the results. OtherTV Stars looked so sad when they did not win. (For this Category).
