34th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards


'Guiding Light' leads with 17 Daytime Emmy nominations

CBS and "Guiding Light" led the field of Daytime Emmy Award contenders with television's longest-running soap opera clinching 17 of the network's 57 nominations. "As The World Turns," another veteran CBS daytime drama, received the second-highest number of bids for a single show with 16 nominations.

CBS dominated the overall network tally, followed by PBS with 38 nominations and ABC with 36. Syndicated programs garnered 53 nominations in all. The winners of the 34th annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards will be announced on Friday, June 15 on CBS in a live television broadcast in Hollywood.

Comedian Ellen DeGeneres, who has swept the talk show awards at the Daytime Emmys for the last two years, was the top contender in that category for "Ellen: The Ellen DeGeneres Show." Her weekday syndicated program clinched 12 nominations, including bids for best talk show host and best talk show.

Competing with DeGeneres for best talk show host are TV chef Rachael Ray, Dr. Phil McGraw, model and actress Tyra Banks and all four co-hosts of "The View," which received 10 nominations in all.

Last year, "The View" executive producer and co-host Barbara Walters used the occasion of the Daytime Emmys broadcast to announce that comedian Rosie O'Donnell was joining the ABC show's regular line-up, which also includes Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

CBS scored three out of four nominations in the best drama category this year for "The Bold and the Beautiful, "The Young and the Restless" and "Guiding Light."

Kim Zimmer, who won the best actress award last year for her turn on "Guiding Light," was again nominated along with Crystal Chappell, who also stars in the same show. "Guiding Light" aired its 15,000th televised episode last September. It began as a radio serial before it moved to CBS and premiered on television in 1952.

Bob Barker Up for 18th Daytime Emmy


'The Price Is Right' Host Bob Barker

Soon-to-retire game show host Bob Barker has a chance to win his 18th Daytime Emmy. He received a nomination, while the CBS soap opera, "Guiding Light" captured a leading 17 nominations. Another CBS soap, "As the World Turns," got 16 nominations. The Daytime Emmys ceremony will be telecast on Friday, June 15 on CBS at 9 p.m.

New "Today" show host Meredith Vieira was nominated for hosting the syndicated "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and may be recognized in another category: A new award for morning shows such as NBC's "Today" is being established. Those nominations will be announced later in April.

"There's so much talk and feature material on the morning shows that has never been recognized," said Peter Price, National Television Academy President. "It's not a judgment that the network morning shows are no longer news programs," Price said. "They still will be able to submit material for the News and Documentary Emmys."

Barker, 83, will step down as host of CBS' "The Price is Right" in June. Besides Vieira, the sentimental favorite will be competing for the best game show host trophy against Alex Trebek of "Jeopardy!," Pat Sajak of "Wheel of Fortune" and Ben Bailey of Discovery's "Cash Cab."

Barker's 17 previous honors include a Lifetime Achievement Award. It may not be his last chance to win, either; since the awards work on a calendar year basis, he would be eligible again in 2008 for his partial year as host in 2007.

Two "Guiding Light" cast members, Crystal Chappell and Kim Zimmer, will compete for Best Actress in a Daytime Drama. Other nominees include Jeanne Cooper and Michelle Stafford, both of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" and Maura West of "As the World Turns."

With Peter Bergman and Christian LeBlanc, "The Young and the Restless" also had two nominees for Best Actor. Also in the running are Michael Park of "As the World Turns," Anthony Geary of ABC's "General Hospital" and Ricky Paull Goldin of "Guiding Light."

Rosie O'Donnell, who won six straight Daytime Emmys for Best Talk Show Host on her old program, has the chance to return to the winner's circle again. She'd have to break a jinx to do it, though. The women of ABC's "The View" have been nominated for Best Talk Show Host nine times without a win.

Other Best Talk Show Host nominees include Dr. Phil McGraw, Ellen DeGeneres, Rachael Ray, Tyra Banks and "Soap Talk" Co-Hosts Lisa Rinna and Ty Treadway. "Sesame Street," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Young and the Restless" each got 12 nominations.

The Daytime Emmys were held for 32 years in New York before shifting to the West Coast last year. Price said both cities were considered this year, but Los Angeles was the only place the academy could find a suitable venue with available dates. It will be held in the Kodak Theatre.
