Gee, remember when the Daytime Emmys were presented before thousands of deliriously happy fans at Radio City Freakin' Music Hall in primetime during May sweeps and drew massive Nielsen ratings? Now they're on the Internet. Yep, the 41st Annual Daytime Emmys Awards — hosted by Kathy Griffin — will live stream on daytimeemmys.net on Sunday, June 22 (8 p.m./ET, 7 p.m./CT, 5 p.m./PT). What should we expect? Only two things are guaranteed: Griffin, working without censors, will shock the crap out of us (can't wait!) and most of my fearless predictions in the drama categories will, as usual, be laughably wrong. So, dear soap stars, don't be offended if I didn't pick you. It means there's a damn good chance you'll win! Here we go...
Here it is folks — that annual exercise in utter foolishness and certain humiliation known as my Daytime Emmy predictions! But, hey, don't take my word for anything. For the first time ever, you fans can watch the reels that each nominated show and star submitted to the blue-ribbon panels by going to HLNtv.com. And don't miss the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, airing live on HLN from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, June 16 (8/7c). Suds-sational!
CBS' The Young and the Restless leads the pack of Daytime Emmy Award nominees, which were announced on Wednesday morning.
The Young and the Restless scored 23 nominations, helping CBS to become the most-nominated network this year with 50 total nods. PBS, which broadcasts Sesame Street, was right behind with 44.
