Daytime Emmys 2016: 'General Hospital' Is Best Drama, 'Live!' Is Among Other Winners

Following announcement of his departure from 'Live! with Kelly and Michael', Michael Strahan and his co-host Kelly Ripa won the Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host Award.

AceShowbiz - Following Saturday's Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards, the winners in the main categories of the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were unveiled on Sunday, April 26. "General Hospital" won that night's the top prize, taking home the Outstanding Drama Series.

The ABC show also left with multiple other awards including Outstanding Lead Actor for Tyler Christopher, Outstanding Supporting Actor for Shawn Blakemore and Outstanding Younger Actor for Bryan Craig. It also claimed the Outstanding Drama Series Directing Team trophy.

Amid drama surrounding his departure from "Live! with Kelly and Michael", Michael Strahan nabbed the Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host prize. He would be sharing the award with his co-host Kelly Ripa. None of the two hosts was there when they're announced as the winners, so Dr. Oz accepted the trophy on their behalf. "Will accept on their behalf - and Kelly and Michael will share it!" he quipped.

Held in Los Angeles, the 2016 Daytime Emmy Awards wasn't televised due to the high cost of production. "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "Days of Our Lives" were among other titles that earned multiple awards that night.

The former was named a winner in Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team category as well as Outstanding Guest Performer for Obba Babatunde. The latter, meanwhile, has its stars Mary Beth Evans and True O'Brien named the Outstanding Lead Actress and Outstanding Younger Actress respectively.
