WATCH: Joan Rivers Wins The Daytime Emmy (VIDEO)

Publish date:


The world is still in shock over the passing of comedy legend Joan Rivers. While younger fans may have only known Rivers for the acerbic, self-deprecating wit she displayed on shows like E!'s Fashion Police, and reality shows like Joan Knows Best, she once gave Oprah Winfrey a run for her title of Queen of Daytime.

From 1989 to 1993, Rivers hosted The Joan Rivers Show in daytime syndication. She even beat out Winfrey in 1990 to win the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk/Service Show Host. Take a look at Rivers giving a funny and emotional acceptance speech below.
