Jennifer Aniston is paying tribute to her dad, John Aniston.

On Friday night (June 24), the 53-year-old Friends actress made a surprise appearance during the 2022 Daytime Emmy Awards to help honor the 88-year-old actor, who for nearly 40 years played the role of Victor Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives.

While Jen didn’t attend the awards show in-person, she did appear remotely to honor her dad with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

“This is truly a special moment for me,” Jen started. “It’s an opportunity to not only pay tribute to a true icon in the daytime television world, but it’s also a chance to recognize the lifelong achievements of a great and well-respected actor, who also happens to be my dad.”

She continued, “For over 30 years, his dedication to that show has gained him respect and admiration of his fellow actors, deep friendships and thrilled millions of fans around the world. His career is literally the definition of lifetime achievement.”

A video montage then played John‘s TV highlights throughout his career before the audience gave him a standing ovation.

John also wasn’t able to attend the ceremony, so his longtime co-star Suzanne Rogers accepted the award on his behalf.
