Ellen DeGeneres took home the Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host at the 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, reports E! News.
This is the fourth consecutive win for DeGeneres who beat out both Barbara Walters & Co. and Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa.
“I never take this for granted…Every single year, I know people joke about it…It’s not what we do it for but it feels so good,” DeGeneres said as she accepted her award. “We all know this has been a crazy year. On my show, we’ve done a lot of crying and a lot of laughing, and I’ve cried all by myself and people laugh, and then I cry some more.”
Although “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has also previously won Outstanding Talk Show, this year the show lost to the “Rachael Ray” show.
“It’s a huge honor just to be in the room,” said Ray.
Regis Philbin was also a big winner. The legendary talk-show and game-show host was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for his prolific career in broadcasting.
