Two Food Network series tie for culinary Daytime Emmy
Authentic Entertainment’s Best Thing I Ever Made continued its awards run over the weekend, picking up a prize in a tie for outstanding culinary program at the Sunday presentation of the Daytime Emmy Awards, and a mere 12 days after being named best food program at the Realscreen Awards in Santa Monica.
The program shared the honor with Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, starring Trisha Yearwood and produced by Ellen Rakieten Entertainment and RelativityREAL.
Both series air on Scripps Networks Interactive’s Food Network.
Other Daytime Emmy winners included Cash Cab host Ben Bailey, who took the outstanding game show host award for his work on the now-canceled Discovery Channel series from Lion Television.
The MTV reality series Made, in which young people transform their lives under expert guidance of mentors, took the award for outstanding special class series. That honor was presented during the Creative Arts awards on Friday.
Here’s a wrap-up of assorted winners from the Friday and Sunday events, with credits from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
