Ina Wins Daytime Emmy

My wonderful reader, Marla, alerted me that the flawless Ina won the Outstanding Lifestyle/Culinary Host Daytime Emmy Award yesterday.

The awards were so low key this year that I didn’t even know they were on (on the CW network). And it wasn't easy to find anything about the non-soap opera and talk show winners. (RR’s talk show beat out Ellen’s.) Anyway, Ina won as best Lifestyle/Culinary Host. She beat out RR, Bobby for Grill It!, Peter Ishkhans for Peter Perfect and Ming Tsai on PBS.

Grill it! With Bobby Flay won for Outstanding Culinary program. The other nominees were the Food Network’s Barefoot Contessa and Giada at Home (I LOVE Giada, but not on this series*) and from PBS, Gourmet’s Diary Of A Foodie andSimply Ming.

Congratulations, Ina. Now you’re not only the hostess with the mostess, but you have an Emmy, as well.

* Giada At Home did win for Outstanding Directing In A Culinary Program. So we have Anne Fox to “thank” for all the cleavage shots (once again) of Giada?

Hi, Sue ...

It's even more complicated than trying to find the award show on CW. Ina's award was ANNOUNCED on Saturday night, apparently in a secret location. Lots of celebrating in East Hampton or Paris, I'm sure. Ina deserves the recognition.

Yaaaay Ina! That makes me very happy. I wonder if the show has woman previous awards? Surely it has.

Hi Marla,
Yes, I should have mentioned that the "Creative Arts" awards weren't even part of the hard to find "real" awards.

Oh, I hope they are in Paris, clinking champagne glasses.

Me too! She's the best.

This is what Wikipedia says: "The show was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in 2005. In 2007, it was nominated in the category of Outstanding Lifestyle Program."

Congratulations to Ina! I'm so happy she won- she's my favorite. I so look fwd to her new seasons and am let down when her next show is a repeat/one I've seen before. Of course I watch anyway!!
