ABC tops Emmy noms

'Rosie,' 'Y&R,' Lucci highlight daytime races

ABC led the webs, Rosie O’Donnell paced the yak pack and “The Young & the Restless” emerged as the show to beat after Wednesday’s unveiling of the nominees for the 25th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

And yes, perennial Emmy bridesmaid Susan Lucci of ABC’s “All My Children” will get her 18th try at bagging the trophy for lead actress in a drama series when the awards are handed out May 15 at Radio City Music Hall in a ceremony televised by NBC.

But no, talkshow phenom “Jerry Springer” was not recognized by Emmy voters in any category, in spite of his unique contributions to the daytime TV landscape. “Springer” exec producer Richard Dominick maintained a sense of humor about the snub: “We should’ve been nominated …. If somebody throws a chair at Oprah or Rosie (during the awards ceremony), we would’ve been there to help.”

In the web-by-web derby, ABC weighed in with 52 Emmy bids, more than any other network or distributor outside of the overall syndication category, which received a total of 53 noms. CBS came in a close second with 49, followed by PBS (48), NBC (26), the WB Network (10) and cabler American Movie Classics (7). Fox and cablers Nickelodeon, Showtime and the Disney Channel each received five nominations.

CBS’ top-rated sudser “The Young & the Restless” led the list of programs with multiple nods with 18, including the top-dog category of best drama series and two bids for lead actor in a drama series, for stars Eric Braeden and Peter Bergman. Rounding out the contenders for best drama series were NBC’s “Days of Our Lives,” ABC’s “All My Children,” which nabbed its 23rd consecutive nod, and “General Hospital,” which has taken home the prize for the past three years.

In addition to the leading men of “Y&R,” drama actor nods went to “All My Children’s” David Canary; “General Hospital’s” Anthony Geary and Kin Shriner of ABC’s new soap “Port Charles.” Joining Lucci in the list of drama actress nominees were Eileen Davidson of “Days of Our Lives,” Jacklyn Zeman of “General Hospital” and Cynthia Watros and Kim Zimmer of CBS’ “Guiding Light.”

Warner Bros.’ “Rosie O’Donnell” — last year’s winner in the talkshow host category — again ruled the chatshows with 13 bids, compared to eight for King World’s “Oprah Winfrey” (last year’s winner for best show) and ABC’s “The View” and six for NBC/Paramount’s “Leeza Gibbons.”

The five nominees in the key categories of talkshow and talkshow host were identical: “Rosie O’Donnell,” “Oprah Winfrey,” Buena Vista TV’s “Live With Regis & Kathie Lee,” “Leeza” and “The View,” whose nod in the hosting category was shared by co-hosts Barbara Walters, Star Jones, Meredith Viera, Joy Behar and Debbie Matenopoulos.

Contestants in the gameshow category included two freshman series, the syndie “Pictionary” and Comedy Central’s “Win Ben Stein’s Money,” along with perennial nominees “Wheel of Fortune,” “Jeopardy!” and CBS’ “The Price Is Right.” Vying for gameshow host bragging rights are “Jeopardy!’s” Alex Trebek, “The Price Is Right’s” Bob Barker and Pat Sajak of “Wheel of Fortune.”

In the kidvid arena, PBS’ “Sesame Street” took the lion’s share of nominations with 11. In the running for best children’s series are the syndie “Disney Presents Bill Nye the Science Guy,” PBS’ “Reading Rainbow” and “Where in Time Is Carmen Sandiego?,” and Nickelodeon’s “Nick News.” Contenders in the animated series category are PBS’ “Arthur” and “The Magic School Bus,” ABC’s “Disney’s 101 Dalmatians,” and the WB Network’s “Animaniacs” and “Pinky and the Brain.”

In all, the Gotham-based National Academy of TV Arts & Sciences handed out nominations in 59 categories for programs airing between 2 a.m. and 6 p.m. Eligibility period for this year’s daytime Emmy derby was Feb. 6-Dec. 31, 1997. Winners in the non-televised creative arts categories will be unveiled May 9 in simultaneous ceremonies in New York and Los Angeles.
