The nominees were announced on Wednesday’s episode of “The Talk.” Both of this year’s shows for the Daytime Emmy Awards (including Creative Arts) will be led by executive producers David Michaels, senior vice president of daytime at NATAS, and David Parks of Ignition Entertainment.

“The incredible level of talent and craft reflected in our nominees continues to show the growing impact of Daytime television and the incredible diversity of programming the viewing audience has to choose from,” said executive director, daytime, Brent Stanton. “With the help of some outstanding new additions to our staff, Rachel Schwartz and Lisa Armstrong, and the continued support of Luke Smith and Christine Chin, we have handled another record-breaking number of entries this year. Many thanks to our hundreds of great judges, who through their hard work and dedication, have come up with a stellar list of nominees that exemplify the best in daytime!”
