TV favorite Ellen Degenres took home her fourth straight Daytime Emmy award Friday night at the 35th annual awards in Hollywood -- and has no plans to stop competing for the coveted prize.

Oprah Winfrey -- who's taken home numerous Emmy awards for her daytime talk show -- hasn't submitted her name for consideration for the past few years.

"I'm not going to take my name out. Oprah has made so many bad choices. Look at her career," DeGeneres said jokingly.

Fellow talk show host Tyra Banks also took home an Emmy nod for best informative talk show -- and gave praise to Winfrey during her acceptance speech.

"I want to thank Oprah Winfrey for her inspiration," Banks said. "She is the queen and will always be the queen."

Congrats, Ellen!
