    Big Bird, The View and Tyra Banks Win Big at Daytime Emmys

    The 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards was an event of firsts, lasts and one very Big Bird.

    The Bold and the Beautiful won Outstanding Drama Series, ending the CBS soap's 22-year streak without an Emmy win.

    The awards show, held at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles Sunday night, also marked an end for Guiding Light, which was canceled after a 72-year run. Although the show is going dark, it didn't leave empty-handed. Jeff Branson tied for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series with All My Children's Vincent Irizarry.

    Host Vanessa Williams kicked off the night with a song-and-dance number to a parody-filled "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You," and strutted along the stage in a slinky white gown.

    But not even the Ugly Betty star could upstage the loveable Muppets of Sesame Street, who joined onetime Street guest star Sandra Oh onstage after they received the Lifetime Achievement Award for educating and entertaining children for 40 years. The Street's biggest stars, like Big Bird, Elmo and Cookie Monster, hit the stage for a rendition of their theme song.

    Rachael Ray and Tyra Banks also won big, taking home Emmys for Outstanding Entertainment and Informative Talk Shows, respectively.

    The ladies of The View were among the talk show divas garnering Emmy accolades. The chatty cohosts weren't in attendance at the ceremony, but won Best Talk Show Host, shutting down Ellen DeGeneres' four-year winning streak.
