"The View" Finally Wins Daytime Emmy, No One There To Receive It

Posted: Updated:

The ladies of "The View" finally won the Daytime Emmy for Best Talk Show host, but none of them was on hand to receive it.

The chat show's co-hosts — Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Sherri Shepherd — were perhaps so used to losing out to Ellen that they skipped this year's ceremony.

"In hot Ft Lauderdale FL checking out the Daytime Emmys - maybe a win next year ;o(," Sherri — who co-hosted last year's Daytime Emmys — tweeted shortly before the announcement.

She then followed it up with, "OHMYGOSH we won!" "Jesus! We won!" and "The one time I decided not to go we win!"

According to Sherri's Twitter, Whoopi didn't know they'd won:

"Just spoke w/Whoopi. She didn't know we'd won & Joy was out to dinner."
