The Daytime Emmy Award nominations were announced today, and the Ellen Degeneres Show received 8 nominations, including Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment. Ellen will be up against last year’s winner Rachael Ray and Live with Regis and Kelly.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show garnered the most nominations in the talk show category–more than The View (5) and The Oprah Winfrey Show.
Although her show is nominated again, Ellen didn’t submit herself for nomination as Best Talk Show Host. She tweeted this morning, “I feel my steroid use gives me an unfair advantage.” Ha!
The Ellen DeGeneres Show is going for its fifth award for Outstanding Talk Show in seven years.
