LOS ANGELES – "The Bold and the Beautiful" won drama series honors at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday, the CBS soap opera's first such victory in 22 years on the air.
It was a poignant victory for executive producer Bradley Bell, whose late father William J. Bell co-created "The Young and the Restless," a show that was honored seven times in the same category.
The live telecast on the CW went off the air just as the cast and crew was assembling on the stage to accept its trophy.
Drama series lead acting honors went to Christian LeBlanc of "The Young and the Restless," and Susan Haskell of ABC's "One Life to Live."
