Daytime Emmy Nominations: GH Leads Soap Opera Pack (by Slim Margin!)

Daytime Emmy Nominations

Nominations for the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced on Wednesday on CBS’ The Talk, and ABC’s General Hospital juuuuust barely led the soap opera pack with 26 total nominations.

NBC’s Days of Our Lives and CBS’ The Young and the Restless followed very closely with 25 nods each, while CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful racked up 18. Not far behind B&B was the online serial The Bay The Series, with 15 noms.

This year’s Daytime Emmys will be held Sunday, April 29 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Southern California, and live-streamed via Facebook, Twitter and the Daytime Emmys website; the Creative Arts ceremony takes place the Friday prior. Veteran actors Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes, as well as producers Sid and Marty Krofft, will be honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards this year.
