Rachael took home the Emmy for "Best Talk Show (Entertainment)" for the second year in a row, again beating the hugely popular "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" as well as "Live With Regis and Kelly." However, her second nominated category "Best Talk Show Host" didn't score as well with the critics, since they awarded that category to the ladies of "The View" -- Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Barbara Walters.

Winning the category of "Outstanding Lifestyle/Culinary Host" is Ina Garten of Food Network's "Barefoot Contessa,"  who surpassed Rachael, Bobby Flay, Peter Ishkhans, and Ming Tsai.  However, Bobby Flay was awarded a different Emmy award for his well-known series "Grill It! With Bobby Flay."

Food Network director Anne Fox also picked up an award for her work on "Giada At Home," beating out "The Martha Stewart Show," "This Old House," and "Guy's Big Bite."

In total, the Food Network received three Emmy Awards this evening.  So to Rachael Ray and the FN winners, we say: Congratulations!
