ABC’s Good Morning America took home a Daytime Emmy award for Outstanding Morning Show at last night’s Daytime Emmy Awards. Dr. Oz, who won for Outstanding Informative Talk Show, announced the GMA win, double checking the envelope: “I don’t want any mixups here. I am a surgeon afterall,” said Dr. Oz before announcing the GMA win.

Los Angeles bureau chief for GMA David Herndon accepted the Emmy during a ceremony which was not televised but did stream on as well as on Facebook Live and Twitter’s Periscope.

The Emmy win follows a People’s Choice Award earlier this year for the nation’s most-watched morning show.

CBS’s The Talk won for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show. Here’s the full list of winners.

At the technical awards given Friday night, the Today show won for Outstanding Directing in a morning program and the show also won for Outstanding On-Camera Musical Performance for a performance by the Cast of The Color Purple.
