Apr 30, 2008  •  Post A Comment

CBS led the way with 56 nominations for the 35th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, announced today. PBS was a close second with 50.
The nominees were announced live on ABC’s “The View.” The ceremony will air live on ABC June 20 from the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles.
Regis Philbin is slated to receive a lifetime achievement award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
Mr. Philbin also is nominated in the talk show host category with “Live With Regis and Kelly” co-host Kelly Ripa. Ellen DeGeneres and the ladies from “The View” also are nominated.
In his first year as host of “The Price Is Right,” Drew Carey was overlooked in the game show host category, won last year by the show’s longtime host Bob Barker. Instead, “Jeopardy’s” Alex Trebek, “Wheel of Fortune’s” Pat Sajak and Discovery Channel’s “Cash Cab” host Ben Bailey will battle for the top nod.
ABC’s “General Hospital” and “One Life to Live” will face off against CBS’ “Guiding Light” and “The Young and the Restless” in the drama series category.
“Restless” was the most-nominated show this year with 17 mentions.
“As the World Turns’” Maura West, “Guiding Light’s” Crystal Chappell and Nicole Forester and “The Young and the Restless’” Michelle Stafford and Jeanne Cooper are vying for the lead actress in a drama series Emmy.
Contenders for lead actor in a drama series are “All My Children’s” David Canary, “Days of Our Lives’” Thaao Penghlis, “General Hospital’s” Anthony Geary and “The Young and the Restless’” Peter Bergman and Christian Le Blanc.

  1. Daytime Emmys are a joke.
    They are not legit.
    CBS pads the ballots
    NBC always gets shafted because there is more programming on CBS.
    Even ABC gets gyped.
    CBS daytime actors -NO TALENT LOSERS- don’t even watch the tapes submitted and just vote for their friends.
    The process should be totally revamped because the same actors get nominated year after year as if NO OTHER ACTORS of show hosts or game shows exist.
    Get rid of the daytime emmy’s, they mean nothing!

  2. Thanks for highlighting all the nominations! This year’s Emmys sound like they’ll be sooo exciting!

  3. The significantly expected Glee Britney Spears event broadcast yesterday evening, aided by the consistently affected even so surprisingly recuperating performer generating a great physical appearance, really absolutely adore her for this, much better than that Lohan woman.

  4. Keep focusing on your blog. I love how we can all express our feelings. This is an extremely nice blog here 🙂

  5. Dreamin. I love blogging. You all express your feelings the right way, because they are your feeling, focus on your blog it is great.
