You know, we just had a thought.
While looking over the nominees for this years Daytime Emmy awards, it occurred to us that this might be the last time they even have the Daytime Emmys! Think about it - most of the shows nominated have be CANCELED!
All My Children, One Life to Live, The Oprah Winfrey Show - all of them will be gone this time next year! Granted, there will still be a lot of competition in the talk show category, but if AMC is seeing its last days, how much longer will The Bold and The Beautiful last. Or The Young and the Restless. The time of daytime soaps maybe finally coming to close.
So, here's our point: if you are fan of daytime television, you should really enjoy the telecast this year and applaud the nominees. If things keep going the way they are, there won't be that much daytime T.V. to celebrate. Sad, but true.
Anyway, check out the full list of nominess this year after the jump. General Hospital took the lead with 21 Emmy nominations, followed closely by The Young and the Restless with 20. AMC and OLTL got 13 and 12 nods respectfully, but alas, Susan Lucci didn't get nominated this year.
Damn! Now she won't get to go out like a diva! Boo!
Thoughts on the nominations?
