Flash! Our underwater heroes succeed at this year’s Daytime Emmys! I’m Realistic Fish Head. As we celebrate our independence this week, we celebrate an historic win for both SpongeBob and the Penguins of Madagascar at the 2010 Daytime Emmy Awards. Our on-the-spot reporter Perch Perkins is live at the scene with Daytime Emmy highlights.
Perch Perkins: Dick Clark, CBS’ As the World Turns, and ABC’s All My Children were honored at the Daytime Emmys.
By the end of the night, the big winner of the night would be CBS, with ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ winning the Outstanding Daytime Drama for the second year in a row.
Outstanding Informative Talk Show was won by ‘The Doctors,’ a first for that show, while ‘Ellen DeGeneres’ was the winner for Entertainment Talk Show. DeGeneres herself wasn’t there, and another no-show was the surprise victor for Outstanding Talk Show Host, Dr. Oz.
Discovery’s unconventional game show, ‘Cash Cab,’ won its third consecutive Emmy as Outstanding Game Show, and Ben Bailey was his fourth Emmy as Game Show Host.
CBS had much to celebrate in addition to ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ s’ big win. Even though ‘As the World Turns’ is ending in September, that soap picked up three major acting awards.
Julie Pinson won her first Emmy as Outstanding Supporting Actress for ‘As the World Turns.’ Her co-star, Michael Park, also earned his first Emmy honor for Outstanding Lead Actor. Meanwhile, the Outstanding Lead Actress trophy went to their cast mate Maura West for her second win.
Another CBS winner was Billy Miller, who took the Emmy as Supporting Actor for ‘The Young and the Restless.’ He thanked his current show, as well as his former show ‘All My Children.’ The Younger Actor award went to ‘B&B’s’ Drew Tyler Bell, while ‘General Hospital’ (ABC) actress Julie Berman won a second Emmy as Younger Actress.
‘General Hospital’ won the Emmy for directing, while Bradley Bell collected the Emmy for ‘B&B’s’ writing team, thanking his late father Bill Bell in his speech.
On the toon side, both The Penguins and SpongeBob each won their daytime Emmy for Outstanding TV show. Plus we give kudos to Fanboy and Chum Chum for their win for directing, as well as Fairly Odd Parents for sound and storyboard, and Back at the Barnyard for creative writing.
With the battle between Bikini Bottom’s hero and King Neptune’s son just hours away, SpongeBob desperately needs a way to make Triton happy. After all, it’s his party!
And speaking of parties, the Clash of Triton premieres this week as Neptune’s son wreaks havoc in our city. And with his best friend Patrick, they’ll need to act quickly to make Triton’s party the best ever.
And as we say happy 4th of July, this is Realistic Fish Head as our coverage of Nick’s summer highlights continues on Bikini Bottom News!
