  1. Must have been an awkward moment for Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan to accept the award together.

      • They didn’t show up last year I believe. Also, they are shooting “Live” this morning and the awards ceremony was in LA. Correct?

  2. The lack of daytime dramas makes “General Hospital” winning in a category of four a big joke. Then, there’s the fact that “General Hospital” isn’t even pulling in three million viewers. Unbelievable.
