• The first Emmy Awards for daytime were given out at the primetime ceremony in 1972, when The Doctors won the first "Best Show Daytime" Emmy.
• Actress Susan Lucci was famous for her iconic role as Erica Kane in All My Children, due in part for being nominated 19 times and never winning. In an emotion-filled ceremony, Lucci finally won for Best Actress in 1999.
• Talk show host Ellen Degeneres holds the record for most Daytime Emmy Awards with 29.
• Actress Erika Slezak has received the most wins (six) for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Victoria Lord on One Life to Live.
• For Best Actor in a Drama Series, Anthony Geary has won a record eight times for his role as Luke Spencer on General Hospital.
• The most awarded game show ever at the Daytime Emmys? That would be Jeopardy! with 15 wins.
