It’s the second biggest day of the year for the people who make TV in the daytime, and I had a front-row seat – in The View break room – to watch this year’s live announcements of the 35th annual Daytime Emmy Awards on the show.

After the broadcast, I learned that Sherri Shepherd, the newest host to join The View team, is willing to do just about anything to help her co-hosts finally bring home an Outstanding Talk Show Host statue. “Maybe we got to strip or pose naked or something, go sell drugs on some island, be in some prison, do something like a movie-of-the-week drama, I don’t know what, what else do you need?” she joked.

Sherri is honored to be part of the team that also scored a nod in the Outstanding Talk Show, Entertainment category. “Coming from where I came from, being in the break room with all my girlfriends and looking at this stuff on TV and dreaming about, 'Wow, what if,' it seemed like such a big, unattainable dream,” she shared with me. “To be a part of that dream right now, it’s indescribable.”

Tyra Banks made a guest appearance on The View to discuss her chances of getting a nod in the category of Talk Show, Informative. “So many people told me my show wouldn’t last for a month,” Tyra told The View co-hosts, adding her show was airing its 500th episode today.


Obviously, she’s done something right. The Tyra Banks Show will go head-to-head in the category against A Place of Our Own/Los Ninos en Su Casa on PBS and the syndicated Dr Phil series.
