Kevin Clash

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced the nominees for the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards earlier today.

This year’s event will be telecast on the Turner Broadcast Networks, HLN on Sunday, June 16.

The full list of all nominees in all categories (it's really, really long) can be downloaded at www.emmyonline.tv.

Worth noting, Steve Harvey received 2 nominations: Outstanding Talk Show Host (The Steve Harvey Show) and Outstanding Game Show Host (Family Feud); Wayne Brady received a nomination for Outstanding Game Show Host (Let's Make A Deal); and finally, Kevin Clash received 2 nominations: Outstanding Performer In A Children's Series (as Elmo on Sesame Street) and he was also included in the overall Sesame Street nomination (listed as Executive Producer) for Outstanding Preschool Children’s Series.

I'm sure that last pair of nominations will raise a few eyebrows in light of several allegations against Kevin Clash last year, that he had sexual relationships with minors, forcing him to resign from Sesame Street.

In a statement to the New York Times, Clash’s lawyer, Michael Berger, said about the nominations: “We’re delighted Kevin’s talents and contributions continue to be recognized by the entertainment industry,” adding that Clash “wants to return to work in the industry he’s committed his entire life to.

Clash denied all the allegations, stating that any relationships that occurred were between consenting adults.

Also worth noting, on the heels of my post this morning about investors flocking to YouTube to invest in, or buy content channels, shows that air exclusively on YouTube are also nominated for Daytime Emmys! I think this might be the first time that this has happened; at least, I couldn't find any evidence to prove otherwise. 

YouTube received 3 Daytime Emmy Award nominations.

So YouTube channels are being recognized as TV channels, and the content within them worthy of competing for industry awards alongside *regular* TV shows.

And, by the way, Facebook received 1 nomination.

Interesting... times and definitions are a-changing. 

I wonder if House Of Cards (Netflix's original hit series) will be recognized by the Primetime Emmys later this year...
