The 33rd Annual Creative Craft Daytime Emmy Awards were presented Saturday at dual ceremonies in New York and Los Angeles, with PBS taking home the most wins with 12.

The series with the most wins was PBS’s “Sesame Street,” with seven awards, followed by Warner Bros.’ syndicated talk strip “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and CBS’s soap “The Young and the Restless,” which each scored four statuettes. CBS’s “As The World Turns” received three awards.

Aside from “Sesame,” PBS garnered wins with kids shows “Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks” and “Zoom,” plus veteran gardening show “The Victory Garden.”

Caroll Spinney, the “Sesame Street” puppeteer who plays the roles of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, was given a lifetime achievement award.

The first-ever Emmy for outstanding achievement in video content for nontraditional delivery platforms-or content delivered via Internet, cellphones or PDA’s-went to AOL’s “Live 8 on AOL.”
