Griffin to be host of Daytime Emmys

LOS ANGELES — Kathy Griffin is taking her comedy online as host of the Daytime Emmy awards as the event heads to a new home on the Internet.

The 41st annual awards will be presented June 22 from the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills.

Griffin joked that her only regret is that the epic evening will distract millions of viewers from enjoying this year’s World Cup.

The awards were televised on the HLN cable network the past two years. But when the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and various cable outlets couldn’t strike a deal, the academy decided to move the show online.

Awards will be handed out in 25 categories, including several new ones, during the live stream.

The academy hopes to attract more worldwide fans through social media sites such as YouTube, Facebook, Google Hangout, Twitter, Vine and Instagram.
