(Newser) – Ellen DeGeneres took home her fourth consecutive Daytime Emmy for best talk show host yesterday—but the award for the top show itself went to foodie Rachael Ray, E! Online reports. Meanwhile, Tyra Banks scored in the new category of Informative Talk Show. “I never take this for granted,” DeGeneres said. “It's not what we do it for, but it feels so good.”
