Ellen DeGeneres and 'General Hospital' Top Daytime Emmy Noms

The nominations for excellence in daytime television are announced, with big names and beloved soaps earning multiple nods

Nominations for the 37th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced this morning, and ABC's General Hospital pretty much left everyone in the dust with a mind-blowing 18 nominations (James Franco, unfortunately, got snubbed as the crazy artist-killer). And Ellen DeGeneres really has something to dance about: The Ellen DeGeneres Show received eight nominations, including one for outstanding talk show. ABC's The View trailed with five, including a nod in the outstanding talk-show host category, and The Oprah Winfrey Show garnered four nominations.
