Cameron Mathison and Sherri Shepherd to Host Daytime Emmys Tonight
The 35th annual Daytime Emmy Awards are scheduled to air tonight at 8pm on ABC. Daytime regulars Cameron Mathison (All My Children) and Sherri Shepherd (The View) will act as master and mistress of ceremonies.

Mathison will be wearing a tuxedo by Arnold Brant, and Shepherd will sport gowns by Badgley Mishka and Angela Dean and jewelry by Chopard.

The list of nominations was announced on Wednesday, April 30 with CBS, in particular The Young and the Restless, nabbed the most noms: 56 and 17, respectively.
Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.



Among the other daytime dramas besides The Young and the Restless, Guiding Light and One Life to Live are tied with 13 nominations apiece.

Daytime television, of course, is not all about soap operas. There are talk shows, this year split between informative talk shows and entertainment talk shows, there are game shows, and now, for the first time in Daytime Emmy history, there are legal/courtroom shows. Oprah, of The Oprah Winfrey Show bowed out of the Daytime Emmys eight years ago to give other talk shows a chance to shine, which explains how The Tyra Banks Show made it on this year's list.

Here is a look at some important awards to look for that are up for grabs tonight.
