Keke Palmer Becomes First Woman In 15 Years To Win The Emmy For Best Game Show

Keke Palmer is the first woman in 15 years to win the Emmy for Best Game Show Host.

Palmer won the Emmy for Outstanding Host for a Game Show for NBC's Password, marking the first time the category has moved from daytime to primetime.

She defeated Jeopardy! presenters Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik, Family Feud's Steve Harvey, and Wheel of Fortune's Pat Sajak.

Palmer is the first woman to win the prize since 2009, when Meredith Vieira won for the syndicated version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

Harvey won last year, and Alex Trebek won the three years before that.

"Wow. That is fantastic, thank you very much. I am practically dumbfounded with gratitude. "I want to thank everyone who made this possible, including Jimmy Fallon and NBC," she stated.

Palmer also took to Instagram to express her joy and appreciation for earning the honor.
