Daytime stars will compete for The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ highest honor next month. Recognizing all TV programming broadcast between 2:00 AM and 6:00 PM in the 2016 calendar year, the 44th Daytime Emmy Awards announced their nominees March 22 on CBS’ “The Talk.” 

CBS amassed 71 nominations across all categories, more than any other network. Receiving an impressive 25 nods was the network’s longtime hit drama “The Young and the Restless.” Trailing not far behind were ABC’s “General Hospital” and CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful,” both with 23 nominations, and NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” with 22. Amazon netted 50 total nods, while PBS earned 40.

David Michaels, senior vice president of the awards show, said, “After receiving a record number of submissions, we are thrilled by this talented and gifted list of nominees that will be honored at this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards.”

The 44th Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony will take place on April 30 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Los Angeles. The Academy will also be holding the Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards there April 28. For a partial list of nominees, see below. Visit emmyonline.com for more information.
