40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. "I have been one of the judges for the Daytime Emmys for many years now," Christopher says, "and it is always an honor to be chosen to judge them every year. When you realize that the Academy trusts your opinion on such important categories, it is very flattering and it's always great to see the reactions of the winners every year when they hear their name called. They've put in a lot of hard work to get to that point and they deserve that recognition."

The name "Emmy" is a feminization of “Immy”, a term commonly used for the early image orthicon camera tube. The statue was designed by Louis McManus, an engineer at Culver City's Cascade Pictures. He used his wife, Dorothy, as his model. McManus's design was the last of 48 entries in an Emmy design competition. His prize was a plaque of appreciation, not an Emmy.
