Sonia Manzano and Mario Lopez bagged awards at yesterday’s 2016 Daytime Emmy Awards. Despite the fact that the annual event was not broadcast on television, lots of stars atended the ceremony after walking down the red carpet at L.A.'s Westin Bonaventure.

Manzano, the beloved “Sesame Street” actress, took a Lifetime Achievement accolade. “My children and just about every child in America has grown up learning their ABC’s from the iconic character of “Maria,” on Sesame Street played by Sonia Manzano,” said Bob Mauro, National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences President. “Sonia not only brought the life events of marriage, having a baby, and being a mother to viewers young and old, she also brought a seldom-seen diversity, a Latin role-model, unlike anything on television at the time.”

Former “Saved by the Bell” star Lopez took home the Outstanding Entertainment News Program Award for his show “Extra.” Lope is rumored to be a likely candidate to take over Michael Strahan’s hosting spot on “Live! With Kelly and Michael”.
