Kelly Ripa & Michael Strahan Accept Their Daytime Emmy Award On LIVE! — And It’s Only A Little Awkward… Watch!

no title

After Kelly Ripa‘s tense return to LIVE! last week, it was starting to look like Michael Strahan‘s remaining days on the morning program would be like a leftover cup of coffee — cold and bitter.

But after the longtime cohosts scored a Daytime Emmy Award over the weekend, the ironic win could be just what the doctor ordered for Kelly and Michael to go out on a high note!

Just weeks before Strahan early exit, the daytime duo walked out with their trophies for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host on Monday’s show.

And probably because they were too distracted by other issues at hand, neither TV personality had any idea the award show was happening this weekend! Ripa told the audience:

“I didn’t realize we had even won an Emmy until I started getting text messages…from all of my friends.”

Strahan also admitted he wasn’t aware the Daytime Emmys happened over the weekend, but made sure to thank the show’s staff for their hard work. He said:

“It’s about a team and that’s what we have here.”

Hopefully, this award reminds Kelly and Michael of the good times they had over the past four years — and will prevent any more thinly-veiled jabs from happening before Strahan’s sendoff.

Ch-ch-check out their surprised reaction to winning (below)!
