CBS, ‘The Young and the Restless’ lead 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Nominations

CBS leads with 50 nominations for the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Award Nominations and The Young and the Restless scored 23 nominations while General Hospital came in second with 19.

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) today announced the nominees for the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Awards, which recognize outstanding achievement in all fields of daytime television production and are presented to individuals and programs broadcast from 2:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. during the 2012 calendar year. This year’s gala will be held at the prestigious Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, June 18 in Beverly Hills, CA and will be broadcast live on HLN.

The Daytime Creative Arts Emmy® Awards gala, which honors the crafts behind the many shows that grace the Daytime genre will return to the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles on Friday, June 14.

This year’s Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Award for Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to two Game Show genre icons, Monty Hall and Bob Stewart.

“Aside from all of the excitement around our 40th anniversary,” said Malachy Wienges, Chairman, NATAS in a press statement, “we are honoring two giants in Game Show history. So many of us grew up watching Monty Hall excite us with what was behind Door # 1, #2 or #3 and found ourselves addicted to the challenge and imagination of Bob Stewart’s classic “To Tell the Truth,” “Password” “Pyramid” and others.  The high-water mark these two pioneers have made in Daytime television is unparalleled and the entire Emmy® Award community stands in appreciation for the immeasurable contribution they have made to the Game Show genre.”
