“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Sesame Street” landed a half-dozen wins apiece on Friday night as the Daytime Emmy Creative Arts Awards were handed out in Los Angeles.

DeGeneres’ syndie yakker, a perennial Daytime Emmy darling, won a craft and technical awards as well as a nod for directing a talkshow or morning program, in a tie with NBC’s “Today.”

Sesame Street” took the statuette for preschool program as well as writing and directing for a children’s program. Kevin Clash, the puppeteer who left the show last November after more than 20 years as the beloved Elmo character amid revelations about his sexual relations, won for performer in a children’s program. He also shared in the directing award for “Sesame Street” with three others: Ken Diego, Joey Mazzarino and Matt Vogel.

Cabler the Hub prevailed in the children’s program category with its “R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour” series. »
