CBS, Y&R Lead Daytime Emmy Nods; Ceremony Won't Be Televised

Daytime TV’s best and brightest got bittersweet news on Thursday afternoon.

While CBS and The Young and the Restless led the list of networks and programs up for 2016 Daytime Emmy awards — with 77 and 27 nods respectively — the announcement was tempered by the news that the ceremony will not be televised.

“After last year’s critically successful Daytime [Emmys] telecast [on Pop], it is with great disappointment that The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announces that there will not be a broadcast of the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards,” said Bob Mauro, NATAS president, in a release. “After months of negotiations to find show sponsorship, the NATAS Executive Board has decided that the current climate for awards shows prohibits the possibility of a telecast this year. With that said, we will be putting on a world-class awards celebration honoring the best and brightest of daytime television and look forward to an exciting show. All efforts regarding returning the annual gala to television in 2017 are underway.”

Following CBS with total nominations were PBS (with 56 nods), ABC (with 37) and Netflix (with 33); syndicated programs accounted for 59 nods, as well.

In addition to Y&R, shows that managed nominations in the double digits included ABC’s General Hospital (24 nods); CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (23); NBC’s Days of Our Lives (16); and PBS’ Sesame Street, Amazons’ Annedroids and the syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show (with 10 each);
