UPDATING Daytime Emmys Go To Kelly Clarkson, Jada Pinkett Smith, Max Gail, Marla Adams, “General Hospital”



Kelly Clarkson has won Best Talk Show and Best Talk Show host.

Jada Pinkett Smith’s “Red Table Talk” won Best Informational Show, which is ridiculous because it’s on Facebook.  Tamron Hall was robbed.

Veteran actors Max Gail and Marla Adams each won Supporting Actor awards for respectively “General Hospital” and “The Young and the Restless.” They each played seniors who suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease, and eventually died. They also deserved their awards. Adams has been on CBS soaps for 30 or 40 years. Gail was famous from “Barney Miller.”

Cady McClain won Best Guest Performer on “Days of Our Lives.” This is her third Daytime Emmy Award. She replaced Melissa Reeves, who’d played part on and off for 35 years.

“General Hospital” won Best Directing for a soap.

“Jeopardy” won Best Game Show.

“The People’s Court” won Best Court show.

Kathie Lee Gifford gave a lovely tribute to Regis Philbin.

Justin Trudeau, PM of Canada no less, toasted Alex Trebek. So did First Lady Dr. Jill Biden.

Martha Stewart did the tribute to Larry King
