LOS ANGELES (AP) – “Guiding Light” has won the first trophy at the Daytime Emmys.

Gina Tognoni, who plays Dinah Marler on CBS’ “Guiding Light,” won the award for outstanding supporting actress at the beginning of ABC’s live broadcast of 35th annual awards show. Tognoni beat out actresses from “As the World Turns,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Young and the Restless” and “Days of Our Lives.”

ABC is shaking up this year’s ceremony with new categories, new interactive elements and a new Golden Globes-style seating arrangement at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre. Honoring everything from soaps to talk shows to game shows, the live broadcast is being co-hosted by Sherri Shepherd from “The View” and Cameron Mathison from “All My Children.”
