Funnywoman Ellen DeGeneres has walked away a big winner from the 2008 Daytime Emmy Awards, where she nabbed the title of Outstanding Talk-Show host for the fourth consecutive year. Ellen thanked her partner Portia de Rossi, her fans and her staff. "I never take this for granted," said DeGeneres.

The 35th Annual Awards ceremony, co-hosted by "Extra" special correspondent Cameron Mathison, also had new winners -- and new categories. Supermodel Tyra Banks took home the statuette in the new category of Outstanding Informative Program, for the "Tyra Banks Show."

Banks thanked her idol when accepting the award, saying, "I want to thank Oprah Winfrey for her inspiration. She is the queen and will always be the queen."
