The Ellen DeGeneres Show has received its eighth Daytime Emmy award for outstanding entertainment talk show.

CBS soap The Young and the Restless picked up best drama series, while its star Billy Miller won for best lead actor in a drama series.

Good Morning America won best morning programme.

The Steve Harvey Show was named outstanding informative talk show, while Harvey also won the best game show award for Family Feud.

For the first time this year, the Daytime Emmys offered awards for Spanish language shows - winners included Telemundo's Un Nuevo Dia as best morning programme.

Joint winners

The ceremony, which aired on TV until last year, was only streamed online this year. The move reflects dwindling audiences for daytime television.

Other winners included Jeopardy! which won best game show and The Mind of a Chef, which won best culinary programme.

There was a tie for best talk show host between Mehmet Oz for the Dr Oz Show and Katie Couric for Katie.

Couric's win came the day after she married New York financier in a small ceremony at her East Hampton home, which was first reported in People magazine.

Her first husband, Jay Monahan, died in 1998 from colon cancer.

Kathy Griffin hosted Sunday's ceremony, with Billy Bush and Mario Lopez among the presenters.
