Daytime Emmy Nominations 2022: Beyoncé Earns First Nod, ‘The Young and the Restless’ Tops ‘General Hospital’

·12-min read

Beyoncé is among the first-time nominees at this year Daytime Emmys, as the National Academy of Arts & Sciences announced the ceremony’s 2022 nominations on Thursday.

The singer is nominated in the original song category for her theme song to Facebook Watch’s “Talks with Mama Tina.” Overall this year, CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” received the most Daytime Emmy nominations, with 18, followed closely by ABC’s “General Hospital,” with 17. Among outlets, syndicated fare earned the top tally, with 48 nods for various program distributors, followed by two broadcasters tied on top: ABC and CBS, both with 31. (Netflix was next, with 27.)

More from Variety

Among this year’s other key highlights: The Daytime Drama category — which has been shrinking since the broadcast networks reduced their serial output — has expanded back to five nominees for the first time since 2014.

That’s thanks to Peacock’s “Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem,” which will go up against stalwarts “The Bold and the Beautiful” (CBS), “Days of Our Lives” (NBC), “General Hospital” (ABC) and “The Young and the Restless” (CBS). That marks the first time a series and its spinoff will go head-to-head in the daytime drama category.

In terms of representation, NATAS reports that this is the first time since 2012 that there are African American nominees in both the lead performance: actor and lead performance: actress categories, and the org also notes that all of the nominees in the best informative talk show category feature people of color as hosts.

This reps the first year under the agreement between the two major TV academies in which several categories have been realigned to focus on genre, rather than dayparts, as a way to divide eligibility between the Primetime (administered by the L.A.-based TV Academy) and Daytime Emmys (handled by the NY-based NATAS). It’s also the first year that children’s and family programming categories have been removed from both shows and relocated to a new Children’s & Family Emmy Award competition and ceremony, the first new Emmy show since 1979. (That event will take place in December.)

As part of the new alignment, Pat Sajak is in the unique position of competing against himself in the game show host category — for both the daytime and primetime editions of his show. He’s up for the syndicated “Wheel of Fortune,” as well as ABC’s nighttime version, “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune.”

“This Old House,” which earned two more nominations this year, has now hit the 100-nomination threshold. The show was previously announced for one of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Awards. The show, which first premiered in 1979, is in its 43rd season. Also receiving a lifetime achievement this year is soap opera icon John Aniston (“Days of Our Lives”).

New networks receiving their first Daytime Emmy nominations include MasterClass, Discovery+ and IMDb TV (now renamed Amazon Freevee).

The 49th Annual Daytime Creative Arts & Lifestyle Emmy Awards takes place June 18 at the Pasadena Convention Center; the 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards follows on June 24 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. The event airs at 9 p.m. ET on CBS; it will be available on Paramount+ for subscribers whose premium accounts include local CBS channels. Otherwise, all Paramount+ users will be able to watch the show on demand starting the next day.
