LOS ANGELES – Ellen DeGeneres, Steve Harvey and the soap opera The Young and the Restless were among the 41st annual Daytime Emmy winners.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show received its eighth trophy as outstanding entertainment talk show at the awards ceremony Sunday in Beverly Hills.

The Steve Harvey show was honoured as outstanding informative talk show, while Harvey won as best game show host for Family Feud.

The Young and the Restless captured six awards, including honours for best drama series and best lead actor for star Billy Miller. Eileen Davidson of Days of Our Lives was named best drama series actress.

The ceremony this year settled for streaming the proceedings online. The change in fortune reflects the dwindling daytime audience and programming shifts.

Kathy Griffin hosted Sunday’s ceremony, with Billy Bush and Mario Lopez among the presenters.

Other winners included Dr. Oz, Katie Couric, Entertainment Tonight, and Jeopardy!
