The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards honouring the daytime soaps and series go live on Sunday evening.

The show will be hosted by Kathy Griffin who is expected to light up the star studded evening with her jokes and witty remarks.

"I can only hope that at the end of the evening, critics and fans alike will compare it to the experience they once had watching Neil Armstrong take man's first step on the moon," Griffin said in a statement after she was announced as the show host.

"My only regret is knowing that this epic evening will distract millions of viewers from enjoying this year's World Cup. I apologize to FIFA," she added.

Contrary to the low rating reports, fans tweeted their excitement for the upcoming event.
