It’s the Daytime Emmys! That magical sprawling field of golden-award dreams that honors TV When Sun Is Up. It’s a diverse land where CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful, Hub Network’s The Aquabats! Super Show!, Nickelodeon’s Bubble Guppies, the syndicated Wheel of Fortune and NBC’s Today Show all manage to get a little love.
This year’s nominees include four nods for Cartoon Network’s final on-air season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, including Outstanding Achievement in Animation. The most-honored shows are once again the surviving soaps — CBS’ The Young and the Restless (26 nominees), The Bold and the Beautiful (18), ABC’s General Hospital (16). They’re followed by PBS’ Sesame Street (15), NBC’s Days of Our Lives (14) and the syndie The Ellen DeGeneres Show (9).
CBS led the nominations with 61 nods. And this year, Netflix got into the game with two nods (for Turbo Fast). The 41st Daytime Emmy Awards will take place on June 22 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Here’s the full list of nominees.
