The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) has unveiled the nominees for The 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Entertainment Awards. PBS is the most recognized network, with 56 nominations. Other multiple nominated networks are ABC, with 50, followed by syndicated programming (49), CBS (30), NBC (20), Nickelodeon (13), and Disney Channel and Food Network, tied with 10 each. ABC’s All My Children leads the pack of individual show nominations, with a whopping 19. Next is PBS’s veteran Sesame Street at 15, followed by NBC’s Days of Our Lives (13), syndicated The Ellen DeGeneres Show (12), ABC’s One Life to Live (11) and CBS’ The Young and the Restless (10).
Freshman syndicated product recognized includes Family Court with Judge Penny from Program Partners for Outstanding Legal Courtroom Program, The Doctors from CBS Television Distribution in the category of Outstanding Talk Show / Informative and Howie Mandel as host of NBC Universal’s daytime version of Deal or No Deal. Notably missing was ABC’s The View for Outstanding Talk Show / Entertainment despite a hosting nod for the five women. And considering Sony Pictures Television’s Judge Hatchett ended production last year, competing in the category of Legal Courtshow Program is just plain odd.
Hosted by Ugly Betty star Vanessa Williams, The 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be telecast live from the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, Aug. 30. Here is a sampling of the top categories. For a full listing of the nominations, click here.
