Sandra Lee Wins Two Daytime Emmy Awards
The proof is in the pudding. For the first time, Sandra Lee, acclaimed lifestyle expert, television star, national best-selling author and host of “Semi-Homemade Cooking” and “Money Saving Meals” on Food Network has been presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) with two Daytime Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Lifestyle/Culinary Host (Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee) and Outstanding Achievement in Makeup (Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee).
“I am honored to be acknowledged by the Academy and by the viewers,” said Sandra Lee. “Semi-Homemade is a labor of love, born out of my respect and deep admiration for American homemakers who work tirelessly to provide their families with meals and special moments that create a lifetime of memories. I am grateful for the support I’ve received from my family, Food Network and my team, including key make-up artists Mark Payne and Alx Galasinao. This is a moment that I won’t ever forget.”
The double Emmy win comes on the heels of the launch of the new Sandra by Sandra Lee collection of home products exclusively available at Sears and Kmart. The Sandra by Sandra Lee collection consists of cookware, utensils, gadgets, bakeware, small kitchen appliances, tabletop items and storage solutions.
Recently, Sandra Lee was included as a “natural beauty” in People Magazine’s “Most Beautiful” issue, an annual special that spotlights the entertainment industry’s most stunning stars.
