Washington [US], July 19 (ANI): The 2021 Daytime Emmy Awards celebrated winners in the fiction and lifestyle categories with posthumous honours for Alex Trebek and Larry King, as well various other accolades going to Zac Efron, Karrueche Tran, Diego Luna, Andy Serkin among others.

As per Variety, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced its remaining crop of Daytime Emmys winners, in the "fiction and lifestyle" fields on Sunday.

The 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards for children's and animation categories were announced on Saturday, while other major awards were revealed via the Daytime Emmys telecast on CBS last month.

Trebek, who lost his battle against pancreatic cancer in November, won in the Outstanding Game Show Host category beating out Steve Harvey, Pat Sajak, Wayne Brady, and Alfonso Ribeiro.

King was recognised as the winner in the Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host category nearly six months after his death due to sepsis, end-stage renal failure, and acute hypoxemic respiratory failure.

He competed against Tamron Hall; Red Table Talk hosts Jada Pinkett-Smith, Willow Smith, and Adrienne Banfield-Norris; Red Table Talk: The Estefans hosts Gloria Estefan, Emily Estefan, and Lili Estefan; and GMA 3 hosts Amy Robach, Dr. Jennifer Ashton, and TJ Holmes.

Efron won daytime program host for his Netflix series 'Down to Earth with Zac Efron', while 'This Old House' was named best instructional and how-to program, Food Network's 'Barefoot Contessa: Cook Like a Pro' was named outstanding culinary series. Tran won for lead actor female in a daytime fiction program, for 'The Bay'. Serkis won as guest performer in a daytime fiction program, for Netflix's 'The Letter for the King'.

The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences celebrated the nominees at the 48th annual event hosted by Loni Love. Presenters included Laila Ali, Francisco Hernandez Caceres, and Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs.
