“General Hospital” won its 15th Outstanding Drama Series Daytime Emmy Award at Friday night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards at the Pasadena Convention Center. The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences program has called Pasadena home since 2017.

The win for “General Hospital” extended his record, while “Jeopardy!” won the Outstanding Game Show award for the third consecutive year and 19th time overall, also extending its record.

Other nominees for Outstanding Drama Series were NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” and its offshoot, “Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem,” which airs on the NBC Peacock streaming service. Other nominees were CBS’s “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

Mishael Morgan of “The Young and the Restless” won for Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama beating out Marci Miller and Arianne Zucker of “Days of Our Lives” and Cynthia Watros and Laura Wright of “General Hospital.”

John McCook of “The Bold and the Beautiful” won Best Actor in a Daytime Drama. The other nominees were Peter Bergman and Jason Thompson from “The Young and the Restless” and Eric Martsolf and James Reynolds from “Days of Our Lives”.

Steve Harvey for “Family Feud” won Best Game Show Host. Pat Sajak has been nominated twice in the category, for his work on “Wheel of Fortune” and “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune”. Wayne Brady for “Let’s Make a Deal” and Leah Remini for “People Puzzler” were also nominated.

“Wheel of Fortune,” “Let’s Make a Deal,” “Family Feud” and “The Price is Right” were the other nominees for Outstanding Game Show.

Friday’s event at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium marked the return to an in-person ceremony after two years of hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner of “Entertainment Tonight” served as hosts.

During the show, John Aniston — father of Jennifer Aniston — received a lifetime achievement award in recognition of his nearly four-decade run on “Days of Our Lives.”

The bulk of the Daytime Emmy honors were presented last week at the Creative Arts & Lifestyle ceremony.

“The Kelly Clarkson Show” topped the winners of this event, taking home five statuettes. Netflix’s documentary series “Penguin Town” has won three awards.
