Daytime Emmy Nominations: ‘General Hospital’ Leads Field & ‘Kelly Clarkson’ Tops Talkers

UPDATED with full list, 9 AM: Nominations for the 50th Daytime Emmy Awards began trickling in Tuesday night, but now we have the full list. ABC’s General Hospital leads the way with 19 noms, followed by fellow long-running soaps CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (14) and The Young and the Restless (13) and NBC/Peacock’s Days of Our Lives (11). All also are vying for the marquee Daytime Drama Series prize.

The Kelly Clarkson Show leads the talk field with 11 noms, with fellow syndies The Drew Barrymore Show and freshman The Jennifer Hudson Show next with seven and six, respectively, all including Daytime Talk Series. Hudson didn’t make the cut for Daytime Program Host, though Wendy Williams’ successor Sherri Shepherd did, though her rookie show Sherri didn’t get a Daytime Talk Series nom.

See the full list below.

The golden anniversary ceremony is set for Friday, June 16. CBS will air the show and Paramount+ will stream it live at 9 p.m. ET and delayed in the West at 9 p.m. PT. The Daytime Creative Arts & Lifestyle Emmys will be presented the next day.
