“The Young and the Restless” was named the year’s outstanding drama series and “Jeopardy,” “The Ellen DeGeneres” and “The View” also won awards at the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, which were handed out in a virtual ceremony that aired on CBS on Friday evening.

The win is the 11th in the category for “The Young and the Restless,” placing it two behind the all-time leader, “General Hospital.”

The broadcast was hosted by Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Carrie Ann Inaba and Marie Osmond from “The Talk.” Their show lost to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in the Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show category, while “The View” won the Emmy for Outstanding Informative Talk Show. The award for Outstanding Entertainment News Show went to “Entertainment Tonight.”

The Outstanding Game Show Emmy was given to “Jeopardy!” for the record 17th time. (“The $20,000 Pyramid” and its successor, “The $25,000 Pyramid,” are second with nine total wins.)

NBC’s “Today Show” was named the outstanding morning show. “The Bay the Series” won in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series category, the fifth time in the last six years it has done so.

Winning hosts included Alex Trebek for “Jeopardy!” and Kelly Clarkson for “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”

In the daytime drama lead acting categories, the Emmys went to Jason Thompson for “The Young and the Restless” and Heather Tom for “The Bold and the Beautiful.” Thompson is the third different actor to win a Daytime Emmy for playing the role of Billy Abbott on “The Young and the Restless,” making that role the one that has produced the largest number of winning actors. Tom has now won six times, tying her for the most among daytime actresses.

Tamara Braun and Bryton James won the supporting actress and actor awards in a daytime drama for “General Hospital” and “The Young and the Restless,” respectively. Olivia Rose Keegan from “Days of Our Lives” won the award for young performer.
