ABC’s “General Hospital” dominated last night’s Daytime Emmy Awards winning its 12th Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series.
“General Hospital” bested CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful,” NBC’s “Days of Our Lives,” and CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.”
“General Hospital” actor Tyler Christopher earned his first Emmy for his performance as Nikolas Cassadine in the lead actor category. Meanwhile Christopher’s co-star Sean Blakemore also picked up his first Emmy in the supporting actor category for his role as Shawn Butler.
