On Friday, June 7, during CBS’ telecast “The 51st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards,” ABC’s “General Hospital” once again broke its record for the most wins in the Outstanding Daytime Drama Series category, taking home the award for the fourth consecutive year and 17th time overall.

In addition to winning the night’s top prize, “General Hospital” also received awards for Outstanding Directing and Outstanding Writing teams. Actor Robert Gossett won his second consecutive Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Performance in a Daytime Drama Series: Actor for his role as Marshall Ashford on the drama series.

The writing win for “General Hospital” marked the first time in 15 years the show has taken home the award and the show’s first win under the penmanship of former head writers Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor.

The legendary Dick Van Dyke won his second-ever Daytime Emmy Award, winning for his role as Mystery Man/Timothy Robicheaux on “Days of our Lives” in the Guest Performance category. Van Dyke previously won a Daytime Emmy Award in 1984 for Outstanding Performer in Children’s Programming in the series “CBS Library: The Wrong Way Kid.”

Michelle Stafford became a three-time Daytime Emmy Award winner when she was awarded the statue for Outstanding Lead Performance in a Daytime Drama Series: Actress for her portrayal of the always-plotting Phyllis Summers on “The Young and the Restless.” Stafford previously won a Daytime Emmy 20 years ago in the same category, and in 1997 won for Supporting Actress.

Courtney Hope won her first Daytime Emmy Award, winning Outstanding Supporting Performance in a Daytime Drama Series: Actress for portraying Sally Spectra on “The Young and the Restless.” She originated the role on “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

Speaking of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Thorsten Kaye won his second consecutive Daytime Emmy Award in the Outstanding Lead Performance in a Daytime Drama Series: Actor category for his portrayal of Ridge Forrester.

“The Young and the Restless” stars Lauralee Bell (Christine Blair) and Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) presented Melody Thomas Scott of “The Young and the Restless” and her husband, Edward J. Scott, supervising producer of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
