While most televised award shows are held on Sunday nights, the 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards celebrated the best of the best on Friday. Sherri Shepherd (The View) and Cameron Mathison (All My Children) hosted the 2-hour show at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood where attendees sat dinner style at tables rather than just chairs Golden Globe style.
