Steve Harvey wins big at 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards

Steve Harvey thought it best to sit out the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards (that’s a photo, above, of him presenting at the 2013 ceremony, back in the olden times when the event was televised) this weekend, and so the livestream did not have the chance to reward him in person — although Harvey did win both for Outstanding Game Show Host (Family Feud) and for Outstanding Talk Show/Information (Steve Harvey).

Thinking like a man?

Or just thinking like a champ?

His producers and others said Harvey didn’t attend because he was vacationing in Bali.

Either way, ’twas a big weekend for Harvey — along with his two Emmy wins, he also saw Think Like A Man Too, the sequel to the film based on his advice book, debut at #1 at the U.S. box-office.

Here is Steve Harvey on Ellen talking about his many gigs.

Comedians continue to reign in daytime, too, with Ellen DeGeneres and her show picking up the other top talk-show honor. Neither DeGeneres nor Harvey were nominated as talk-show host, however — and in that category, Dr. Oz and Katie Couric shared the win.  Jeopardy, meanwhile, took home the top game-show award.
