2015 Daytime Emmy Winners

Updated on April 27, 2015


What makes The Daytime Emmys unique, you never know what's going to happen. Last night's ceremony was no exception. The night was filled with lots of surprise winners, while some fans were happy, others were left disappointed in the choice of winners.

Let’s take a look at the night’s big winners.


Drama Series

This is the biggest surprise of the night, The Young and the Restless along with Days of Our Lives shared the honor of Outstanding Drama Series. This is the second time in the award show’s history that two shows won the top honor. The Young and the Restless tied with Guiding Light to win Outstanding Drama Series in 2007, and eight years later they did it again with Days.

Both shows have been phenomenal this past year and they deserve the recognition.


Lead Actor

It was no surprise that Anthony Geary won; he was the frontrunner heading into the night and captured his eighth Daytime Emmy. Geary gave a touching speech in which he thanked the academy for not getting tired of him. With incredible acting like his, how can anybody get tired of him?

Lead Actress

Even though I predicted Alison Sweeney to win, I also said this was a wildcard race and any of the leading ladies stood a good chance of winning. Maura West picked up her third Daytime Emmy and her first for her role as Ava on General Hospital. West is one of the best actresses in the business and with her current storyline don’t be surprised if she earns more Emmys to put on her shelf.


Supporting Actor

This was Jacob Young’s award to lose and unfortunately he came up short. His biggest competition was Chad Duell, who ran up to the stage to accept the award after his name was called. Many felt that Young was robbed of the award, but I wouldn’t fret, with the work he’s put on he’ll be nominated again next year.


Supporting Actress

This was the first award given and the biggest surprise of the night. Y&R’s Amelia Heinle took home her second Emmy for Supporting Actress. In all honesty, I didn’t think she stood a chance given she was among the ranks of Linsey Godfrey and Finola Huges. Despite the shock, Heinle’s second win proves that she’s quickly becoming one of Y&R’s hottest leading ladies.


Younger Actor

General Hospital fans were fuming when Bryan Craig lost out to Days star Freddie Smith. As I said in my predictions post, I thought Craig was going to win and Smith’s reel was too short and it didn’t move me that much. But the academy thought otherwise and voted him as Outstanding Younger Actor. With rumors swirling that Smith is leaving the show, this was a good way to end his run as Sonny.


Younger Actress

Again another surprise of the night. Like her co-star Amelia Heinle, Hunter Haley King picked up her second Emmy in a row. King’s a good actress and she had a big storyline this year she should be proud of her wok. Yet, in my opinion her reel wasn't her best work and I believe the award should've gone to Camila Banus or Haley Pullos. Despite the criticism she's received, King's established herself as a keyplayer on The Young and the Restless. There's no doubt she'll be nominated again next year and will probably take home gold given her ongoing storyline.
