The 44th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were held on April 30th at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, hosted by The Talk’s very own Sheryl Underwood and Extra’s Mario Lopez. It was a big night for Global daytime shows The Young and the Restless, Days of Our Lives, and The Talk, which all took home at least one award.
