"Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host/Outstanding Talk Show Host"
1990: The Joan Rivers Show}}}}}}
"Joan Alexandra Molinsky" , known as "Joan Rivers", was an American actress, comedian, writer, producer, and television host noted for her often controversial comedic persona — where she was alternately self-deprecating or sharply acerbic, especially toward celebrities and politicians.
Rivers came to prominence in 1965 as a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson/The Tonight Show. Hosted by her mentor, Johnny Carson, the show established Rivers' comedic style. In 1986, with her own rival program, The Late Show (1986 TV series)/The Late Show with Joan Rivers, Rivers became the first woman to host a late night network television talk show. She subsequently hosted The Joan Rivers Show (1989-1993), winning a Daytime Emmy Award/Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host.
As the author of 12 best-selling memoir and humor books and numerous comedy albums, Rivers was nominated in 1984 for a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album/Grammy Award for her album What Becomes a Semi-Legend Most? and was nominated in 1994 for the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for her performance of the title role in Sally Marr...and her escorts.If you enjoy these quotes, be sure to check out other famous comedians!
