Days of Our Lives, George Lucas and Dr. Oz were among those honored at the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, broadcast live on Sunday from Los Angeles on HLN.
The Daytime Emmys recognize network and syndicated programming. Game show icons Monty Hall and producer Bob Stewart were also given Lifetime Achievement Awards during the telecast that included a few surprises (Days won the top prize for the first time since 1975, Ricki Lake won for her canceled talker) and some embarrassing flubs (the ladies of The Talk were given the wrong envelope). But presenter Carrie Fisher did talk about dropping acid when presenting Lucas with a golden statue.
