article image'Young and the Restless' leads with 23 Daytime Emmy nominations

By Tim O'Brien     May 1, 2013 in Entertainment
It can be said that the heyday of soap operas are behind us. Those days when the shows were actually sponsored by soap companies, hence the name.
With the announcement of the nominations of the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards today (May 1), one could also notice that there are not that many still on the air. Thus, it would be hard not to get a nomination this time around. Or, for that many, quite a few of them.
On that note, for individual shows, "Young and the Restless" has 23; "General Hospital," 19; "Sesame Street" and "Days of Our Lives,' 17 each. For networks, CBS grabs 50 nominations; PBS, 44, ABC, 38 and NBC, 25.
The show will air on CNN's "Headline News," which may sound odd, and is, but it did help the channel last year, according to the release. “Last year, HLN’s first-ever presentation of the Daytime Emmy® Awards was the #1 most-watched, regularly-scheduled non-news broadcast in the network’s history, and received terrific viewer feedback both on-air and online. Our audiences thanked us for tapping into that vital part of American pop culture,” said Scot Safon, Executive Vice President & General Manager, "HLN." For more, head here.

When browsing the entire list, it all becomes very clear that there may be too many categories. With many award shows, this is the case. But, where to draw that line? That is for another story, but like the Grammys, there are a lot, to say the least.
Perhaps that is why the Oscars are king in the entertainment world. They only have so many and to add another category takes time. Winning an Oscar means more. Even adding up to 10 nominations in the Best Picture category took some guts. To add a stunt category would, too. But, they are still waiting.
Game Show legend Monty Hall and Producer Bob Stewart with be honored with this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
