There were some ties. "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune" both won for best game show. The other tie happened between the hosts for those shows, Alex Trebek and Pat Sajak. They both took home Lifetime Achievement awards.
Sajak said he was thrilled.
"First of all, I am delighted and excited that we each get one of these. I thought it was like the Stanley Cup and we had to share one. So I am awfully glad about that," said Sajak.
Trebek also gave a special thank you.
"When you look good, you feel good and you perform better, so to hair and makeup, Renee and Sandy, without them I look a lot like Moammar Gadhafi," Trebek.
The award show was bittersweet for many in daytime TV. The ABC shows, "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," are leaving the air after more than 40 years.
Brittany Allen of "All My Children" earned the show's final Daytime Emmy on Sunday night, for younger actress in a drama series. She is no longer playing the role of Marisa Chandler.
Also leaving daytime TV are talk show host Regis Philbin, TV personality Meredith Vieira, and daytime queen Oprah Winfrey, who wasn't present for a tribute to her recently concluded 25 years on the air.
