HomeTV36th Annual Daytime Emmy AwardsBarbara Walters Gives Belated Emmy Acceptance Speech Luke Kerr September 9, 2009 1 Comment The 13th season of The View kicked off yesterday, without co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and the ladies brought their "bundles of joy"–their Daytime Emmys–with them. Barbara made a little acceptance speech, thanking her co-hosts, but made the point that she didn’t understand how they could win as best hosts and not be nominated for best show saying "I guess the academy thinks we are the best hosts of a not so terrific show." I wonder what Rosie O’Donnell thinks of their win? Meghan McCain is today’s first guest co-host of the season. One Response jetty September 10, 2009 Barbara, you and your cohorts only got the Best Host awards because people were tired of seeing your names there and decided to be generous. And yes, The View is a horrible, horrible show which definitely didn’t deserve a nomination. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
