"Donahue" and "Jim Henson's Muppet Babies" were repeat winners in the first round of ceremonies honoring winners of the 13th annual Emmy Awards for daytime TV programs.
"Donahue" was named best talk/service show and "Muppet Babies" was selected as best animated program, the second year in a row they captured those honors.
But the program that walked away with the largest number of Emmys in the non-televised event was "Babies Having Babies," a "CBS Schoolbreak Special" for young people about a group of pregnant teen-age girls. It won four: for director Martin Sheen (in his first directing effort), for writers Kathryn Montgomery and Jeffrey Auerbach, for videotape editor Stuart Pappe and for sound technicians Mark Bovos, Tom Huth and Mike Mitchell.
Most of the 33 awards presented Sunday by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences were in the craft areas. Another 14 Emmys, mostly covering programs and performers, will be presented Thursday in ceremonies at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, to be broadcast nationally by NBC (2 p.m., Channels 4, 36 and 39).
