The Daytime Emmys showered "General Hospital" with five trophies, including best drama, while giving Regis Philbin a fond farewell as a departing talk-show host.
"Live with Regis and Kelly" was saluted as best entertainment talk show (its first-ever nod in that category) and for best talk-show hosts. Philbin ended his long run as its co-host last November, with a replacement yet to be named to join Kelly Ripa as the syndicated series continues.
The syndicated "Dr. Oz" was named best informative talk show.
"There's not a lot of glamour and glory in daytime," Geddie said during his acceptance speech. "But when you think about it, we're all here with the best of intentions: We just love making TV!"
