‘Days Of Our Lives’ Star John Aniston Wins Daytime Emmys Award
The Daytime Emmys has become known for honoring the best of daytime TV shows. And for “Days Of Our Lives” star John Aniston, the 2022 event turned into a ceremony to remember for two reasons. First, John won a very special award. And second, his daughter Jennifer Aniston showed her love in a moving speech.
But organizers succeeded in turning the actress’ appearance into a surprise that highlighted the awards, noted EW. As a result of his years on “Days Of Our Lives,” John took home the 2022 Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award. And his co-star Suzanne Rogers (Maggie Kiriakis) introduced the actor who had portrayed Victor Kiriakis for decades.
But the real highlight came when John’s daughter Jennifer Aniston made a virtual appearance. “This is truly a special moment for me,” gushed Jennifer. And she reflected on why she felt the moment seemed so memorable. “It’s an opportunity to not only pay tribute to a true icon in the daytime television world, but it’s also a chance to recognize the lifelong achievements of a great and well-respected actor.” And she showed her humor in adding, “He who also happens to be my dad.”
As CBS pointed out on Twitter, “The only thing better than winning the #DaytimeEmmys Lifetime Achievement Award is having it presented to you by your daughter, Jennifer Aniston.❤️ Congratulations John Aniston!”
