NEW YORK — PBS led all nets with nine nods at the National Television Academy’s 32nd annual Creative Craft Daytime Emmy Awards, presented during simultaneous ceremonies Saturday in New York and Los Angeles.

ABC and CBS tied with seven awards each.

Of the PBS kudos, four went to “Reading Rainbow”: single camera photography, special class directing, single camera editing and writing in a children’s series.

Daytime Creative Craft Emmys were presented in 41 categories; all except those for individual achievement in animation recognize a group effort and are chosen by a panel of their peers.
