The Jeopardy! host was memorialized with a nomination in the Game Show Host category.

Alex Trebek earned a posthumous Daytime Emmy nomination while Drew Barrymore received her first nod in the Talk Show Host category, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the soon-to-be-shuttered The Ellen DeGeneres Show snagged a nom in the Best Talk Show category. Ellen DeGeneres, in contrast, hasn't submitted herself for years.

Nominees are selected by industry expert panels; not the general membership. Winners have already been selected (but remain secret) since they are the ones who collect the highest score during the nomination process. That's why you never see For Your Consideration ads for the Daytime Emmys.

Emmys in more than 40 daytime categories will be given out June 25 on CBS. Here are some of the more prominent nominees:
