Kelly Ripa And Michael Strahan Celebrate “Live” Daytime Emmys Win (VIDEO)
As Gossip Cop reported, Ripa and Strahan won Outstanding Talk Show Entertainment Co-Hosts at the 2016 Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday, but were not there to accept the honor. It was actually the second year in a row they had won, and they didn’t attend last year’s ceremony either. But this time, the victory came as Strahan is spending his final days on the show, after blindsiding Ripa with the news that he’s leaving to join “GMA.”
On Monday’s broadcast, just hours after the new win, Ripa and Strahan were announced as new Emmy winners, and walked out holding hands and trophies. “So, what’d y’all do yesterday?” Ripa deadpanned. “We won an Emmy!” The two then thanked each other and the audience, before Ripa revealed she didn’t know they had won until people texted congratulations.
It was the Halloween show that led to their victory, prompting Ripa to thank the producer behind it, as Strahan gave shout-outs to the entire crew. “It’s about a team, and that’s what we have here,” he said. After a little more Emmys chatter, Ripa segued into talking about her weekend. Check out the video below.
