By Kaylee Hultgren
The Daytime Emmy noms were announced today, with Nickelodeon garnering the most of the cable networks with 36, followed by The Hub with 17 and Cartoon Net with 11. The top 3 nets were broadcast, with CBS leading the pack with 50 noms, PBS getting 44 and ABC landing 38.
Cable shows with multiple nominations were led by R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour on The Hub (9), Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness (7) on Nick and Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network (7).
YouTube is in the running for two shows in the Outstanding Lifestyle Program, with Capture w/Mark Seliger and Hooked Up w/ Tom Colicchio. Additionally, YouTube and Facebook share a nomination for Outstanding New Approaches—Original Daytime Program or Series for The Beauty Inside.
While broadcasters have soaps, cable’s strength is in animation. It’s sure to win the Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program—zero broadcasters are represented. The Hub, Cartoon Net (3), Nick and Disney XD are in the running. The same networks (minus Disney XD) are up for the Outstanding Directing in an Animated Program. The 6 winners of the Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation category are from cable toons, and the animation sound editing and sound mixing categories are also dominated by cable nets.
The gala event will take place at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in LA on June 14 and be broadcast live on HLN.
