This was Trebek’s third straight win and sixth in the overall category. He has been nominated for records 32 times during his career.

Executive Producer Mike Richards dedicated the best Game Show trophy to Trebek, who had been hosting for 37 years.

“He wasn’t just a game show host, he was a legend and a towering figure,” Richards said in a pre-recorded statement. “He believed’Jeopardy!’. It was more than just a game show. He loved it because it represents a festival of fact, competition, and intelligence.”

The talk show, which bears the name of Kelly Clarkson, won two trophies. The singer was honored as a host, defeating daytime rookie Drew Barrymore and others, and the show won the entertainment talk category.

Trebek, along with Regis Philbin and King, was remembered in a special compliment segment. Philbin died last July at the age of 88. Among those who praised Trebek in the recorded comments were First Lady Jill Biden of the United States and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada.

“I started talking to him a few years ago, and he told me how proud he was to be Canadian,” Trudeau said. “I had to tell him that every Canadian was incredibly proud that he was one of us.”

King, who died in January at the age of 87, won as a host of informative talk shows on his eponymous show on OraTV. His sons, Chance and Cannon, accepted.
