Food Network Cooks Up Two Daytime Emmys

Nickelodeon, Hub Win Big At Creative Arts Emmy Awards

Food Network was cable TV’s big winner at the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards Sunday night.

Food’s The Best Thing I Ever Made and Trisha’s Southern Kitchen tied for the award in the Outstanding Culinary category, according to The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: Clone Wars won for Outstanding Special Class Animated Program, while Ben Bailey of Discovery Channel’s Cash Cab won for Outstanding Game Show Host.

Overall CBS won the most Daytime Emmys with eight during the telecast, which aired live last night on HLN.

Last night's awards telecast comes on the heels of Friday night's non-televised Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony in which Nickelodeon and The Hub garnered the lion's share of cable wins. Both kids-targeted networks won seven awards, while Disney Channel and Cartoon Network also garnered multiple Awards during the evening event.
