THE NATIONAL TELEVISION ACADEMY PRESENTS
THE 33rd ANNUAL DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS
IN A THREE-HOUR TELECAST ON ABC

For the First Time, The Daytime Emmy Awards
Were Held in Hollywood at the Famed Kodak Theatre

NEW YORK, NY – April 28, 2006 – The 33rd Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards were presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre tonight and telecast live on the ABC Television Network (8-11 PM, ET; tape delay to the West Coast). The black-tie gala ceremony, which marked the first time in its 33-year history that the Daytime Emmy Awards were presented in Hollywood, was hosted by Tom Bergeron (“Dancing with the Stars,” “America’s Funniest Home Videos”) and Kelly Monaco (“General Hospital”). The three-hour star-studded telecast opened with Award-winning actor and musician Rick Springfield (“General Hospital’s” Dr. Noah Drake) performing a mix of his best music – including his worldwide megahit, “Jesse’s Girl.”

Daytime Emmy Awards were presented for performances and programs in 15 categories, including Outstanding Lead Actor/Actress in a Drama Series, Outstanding Game Show Host, Outstanding Talk Show, Outstanding Pre-School Children’s Series and Outstanding Drama Series. Presenters included Chandra Wilson, Kate Walsh and James Pickens, Jr. (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Rachel Ray (“The Rachel Ray Show”), Tyra Banks (“The Tyra Banks Show”), Judge Judy Sheindlin (“Judge Judy”); Lisa Rinna and Ty Treadway (“Soap Talk”); Barbara Walters, Meredith Vieira, Star Jones Reynolds, Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck (“The View”), and dozen of stars from all the Emmy-nominated daytime dramas.

On April 22, Daytime Emmy Awards were presented primarily in the creative arts categories at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City and at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland in Los Angeles. At the New York ceremony, Caroll Spinney, the puppeteer who plays the roles of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street, was honored with this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Spinney was chosen for his work entertaining and educating children for nearly four decades, since the series debut in 1969.
