ABC soap operas lead the 2011 Daytime Emmy nominations
The 2011 Daytime Emmy nominations are in! Did your favorite soaps make the cut?
The nominations are in for the 38th Daytime Emmy Awards! This year's nominations are bittersweet, mostly because two shows that are constant Daytime Emmy contenders -- All My Children and One Life to Live -- are ending after 40-plus years on ABC.
All My Children pulled in 13 total nominations for the 2011 Daytime Emmys and One Life to Live received 12. All My Children was even nominated for the biggest award of them all: Outstanding Drama Series.
Two AMC actresses were nominated for Best Actress in a Daytime Drama: Alicia Minshew and Debbi Morgan. All My Children's Ricky Paull Goldin also received a nod for Best Actor in a Daytime Drama.
Maybe ABC wants to rethink the cancelation of both shows? Even more so now that the only remaining ABC soap opera, General Hospital, scored the most nominations: 21. Was it because James Franco appeared on the show?
Retiring Live With Regis and Kelly host Regis Philbin is hoping to nab his first Daytime Emmy with the show's nomination in the Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment category.
The 2011 Daytime Emmy Awards will air Sunday, June 19. Comedian Wayne Brady will host the show live from the Las Vegas Hilton.
