Home Television Daytime Emmy Award Nominations Are Here: Valerie Bertinelli, Alex Trebek, Susan Seaforth...

The Daytime Emmy Award nomination were announced today, the day after CBS said they’d carry a virtual version of the Emmys on June 26th. What a coincidence. Among the most buzzed about nominees: Alex Trebek, who has to win because he’s made it this far with grace and elegance; Valerie Bertinelli, because she’s a breath of fresh air in those stale kitchens; and Susan Seaforth Hayes, who has waited 50 years in soap operas and was better than ever this season on that zany “Days of Our Lives.” Other should-wins in bold face.
