Is Your Favorite Daytime TV Obsession Nominated for a Daytime Emmy?

Daytime Emmy Award Nominations Are Revealed

Originally posted 05/01/2014 11:30AM

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.

This year's outstanding talk-show host nominees include Dr. Mehmet Oz, Katie Couric, Rachael Ray, the hosts of The Talk (Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood) and the hosts of The View (Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shepherd and a retiring Barbara Walters).

Notable hosts who were not included are Queen Latifah and Wendy Williams.

In addition to DeGeneres's show, nominees in the outstanding talk show/entertainment category include Live! with Kelly and Michael, Rachael Ray, The Talk and The View.
