Daytime Emmy Award Nominations Are Revealed

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences released the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Award nominations Thursday, which included a few high-profile selections.

Ellen DeGeneres may not have a nomination in the outstanding talk-show host category – but The Ellen DeGeneres Show led the talk-show field in total nominations, with nine. The host, who won that category from 2003 (when her show premiered) until 2008, has not submitted herself for nominations since and so she is not eligible to be nominated.

Ellen DeGeneres Tops Daytime Emmys

Ellen DeGeneres proved the darling of Friday night’s 33rd annual Daytime Emmy ceremony, taking home the award for best talk-show host for the second time and the top prize for best talk show for the third year running.

“This means a lot of me,” DeGeneres said on the stage of Hollywood’s Kodak Theater (this year’s three-hour show marked the first time ever the event was held out West). She also addressed her partner, actress Portia de Rossi, sitting in the audience and said, “I love you.”

Martha Stewart’s new series Martha picked up nods in the categories of outstanding service show and best service-show host.
