(LAS VEGAS) -- The 38th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards was as much about honoring the past as it was about celebrating the present.
The ceremony, held in Las Vegas on Sunday night, saluted Oprah Winfrey with performances by Gladys Knight and Celine Dion, as well as taped remarks from the likes of Ellen DeGeneres and John Travolta. Winfrey accepted the Crystal Pillar Award via a recorded message from her Chicago studios.
Host Wayne Brady opened the CBS broadcast by acknowledging the retirements of Winfrey, Regis Philbin and Today host Meredith Vieira, in addition to the cancellations of ABC soap operas All My Children and One Life to Live -- the latter statements greeted by boos from the understandably displeased crowd.
Philbin shared best talk show host honors with co-host Kelly Ripa and Dr. Oz, while the CBS soap The Bold and the Beautiful won the top prize, outstanding drama series.
