Daytime Emmy Nominations: Days Tops Soaps, Julie Chen Nommed for Talk

Daytime Emmy Nominations

Nominations for the 46th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced on Wednesday on CBS’ The Talk, and NBC’s Days of Our Lives led the soapy pack with 27 total nods, edging out General Hospital’s 25. The Young and the Restless followed with 20, while CBS sister series The Bold and the Beautiful netted 12.

Despite exiting The Talk in September, Julie Chen appeared in enough episodes to qualify for a co-host nod.

By outlet, CBS amassed 61 total nods across all categories, while syndicated programs accounted for 55. Amazon and Netflix racked up 49 each.

This year’s Daytime Emmys will be held Sunday, May 5 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Southern California, with the Creative Arts ceremony landing on the Friday prior.
