Daytime Emmy nominations: Where's the love for 'The Young and the Restless'?

Posted on

Jeannecooper_lThe 2009 Daytime Emmy nominations were announced today, and, surprisingly, daytime’s highest rated soap The Young and the Restless, didn’t get a nod for Best Drama series. Rather, All My Children, Days of Our Lives, and The Bold and The Beautiful made the short list. Y&R did get two lead actor/actress nods: Christian LeBlanc and Jeanne Cooper (pictured), who memorably won her first lead actress award last year.

The CBS soap wasn’t the only show feeling the cold shoulder from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The View didn’t pick up an Outstanding Talk Show nomination, though all five women (Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sherri Shepherd, and Barbara Walters) were nominated in the host division. Even colder: The canceled Guiding Light didn’t get the critical boost it could have used to help score a move to another network. General Hospital, which has won the most best drama awards, is also out of the running this year, but its actors were well represented. Not only were veterans (Anthony Geary for lead actor) nominated, but so were newer cast members like Bradford Anderson (Supporting Actor), Kirsten Storm, and Julie Berman (both in the outstanding younger actress division). Berman was “floating on cloud nine” after the announcement, as was her costar Anderson. “[My character, Spinelli,] was supposed to die in a car bomb, I think,” says Anderson. “So getting to staybeyond that was wonderful, and now…to have this, I feel very fortunate and lucky tohave a job.”

A partial list of the nominations is after the jump. For a full rundown go to the Daytime Emmys site.
