Hit U.S. soap opera The Young And The Restless looks set to dominate the 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards after landing a whopping 23 nominations. The show will compete against The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital and One Life to Live for the title of Outstanding Drama Series, and it also received nods for Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress in a Drama Series thanks to Michelle Stafford, Peter Bergman, Doug Davidson, and Michael Muhney.
The remainder of the mentions were for prizes in supporting acting and technical achievement, such as directing and editing, as well as for outstanding work completed by a young star.
Meanwhile, country singers Little Big Town landed a nomination for Outstanding Original Song for their recording Good Afternoon (Good Afternoon America), as did Sheryl Crow for her contribution to U.S. journalist Katie Couric's talk show, This Day (Katie).
In the category of Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment, comedian Ellen DeGeneres (The Ellen DeGeneres Show) will go head-to-head with the hosts of The Talk, which stars Sharon Osbourne and Sara Gilbert, and The View, which includes Whoopi Goldberg.
Other nominees included singer Trisha Yearwood for Outstanding Culinary Program (Trisha's Southern Kitchen), actor Wayne Brady for Outstanding Game Show Host (Let's Make a Deal), and embattled former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash for Outstanding Children's Program Performer (Sesame Street).

Ellen DeGeneres will get the chance to defend her title as America's favorite TV personality after scooping two nominations for this year's Daytime Emmy Awards.
Last year, the comedian took home the title of Outstanding Talk Show Host, but her star-studded program The Ellen DeGeneres Show lost out for the first time in the Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment category since its first nomination in 2004.
This time around, she'll face competition for the hosting award from Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa (Live with Regis and Kelly), TV chef Rachael Ray, and The View talk-show hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sherri Shepherd and Joy Behar.
Meanwhile, DeGeneres and her show's producers will face off against Live with Regis and Kelly and Rachael Ray to take back the Best Show title.
However, veteran actress Susan Lucci has been snubbed from the list of nominees, after missing out in the Lead Dramatic Actress category in favor of All My Children co-star Debbie Morgan. Morgan will go up against Maura West (As the World Turns), Susan Haskell (One Life to Live), Susan Flannery (The Bold and the Beautiful) and Jeanne Cooper (The Young and the Restless).
In the male category, nominees for Outstanding Lead Actors in a Drama include Thorsten Kaye (All My Children), Peter Reckell (Days of Our Lives), Anthony Geary (General Hospital), Daniel Cosgrove (Guiding Light) and Christian LeBlanc (The Young and the Restless).
Supermodel-turned-talk-show host Tyra Banks will also have a chance to follow up her 2008 Daytime Emmy with another prize: The Tyra Banks Show is nominated alongside Dr. Phil and new program The Doctors in the Outstanding Talk Show/Informative category.
PBS' Sesame Street will receive the lifetime achievement award.
The 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, hosted by actress/singer Vanessa Williams, will air on Aug. 30.

At the 29th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony at Madison Square Garden Friday night, it was a Rosie evening.
A humbled Rosie O'Donnell won her sixth--and last--Daytime Emmy for best talk show host just days before the last taping of The Rosie O'Donnell Show, which also won best talk show for the fifth time.
Associated Press reported she told the reporters backstage, "I don't feel sad at all. I have had the most amazing six years of my life creatively. I didn't want to continue doing it just because I could."
The effervescent host has won the award every year she has been nominated, sharing the award with Oprah Winfrey in 1998 and Regis Philbin in 2001. But Rosie has decided to leave the talk show business to spend time with her family and pursue other interests.
"I have enough money and when you have enough money and you miss out on your family, then you're missing the whole point of life," she said.
Other winners of the evening included ABC's One Life To Live, which won for best daytime drama for the first time, Susan Flannery of The Bold and the Beautiful for best actress and Peter Bergman of The Young and the Restless for best actor.
Sesame Street won the award for outstanding preschool children's series, which has taken home the Daytime Emmy a whopping 79 times. Jeopardy! was named best game show for the eighth time, while Bob Barker, the emcee for the Daytime Emmy award ceremony, won the best game show host for the 12th time.
The Emmys are awarded by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
In a special ceremony broadcast from the Rainbow Room on NBC News' Today Show, the 28th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards nominations were announced. Maury Povich of the Maury Povich Show and John Cannon, president of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences hosted the ceremony.
The list of nominees for Outstanding Drama Series includes ABC's All My Children and General Hospital and CBS' As the World Turns and The Young and the Restless.
Susan Lucci once again makes an appearance on the list of nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her work as Erica Kane on ABC's All My Children. Joining her are Julia Barr from All My Children, Marcy Walker from All My Children, Martha Byrne from As The World Turns and Susan Flannery from The Bold and the Beautiful.
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series nominees include David Canary from All My Children, Tom Eplin from As the World Turns, Jon Hensley from As the World Turns, John McCook from The Bold and the Beautiful and Peter Bergman from The Young and the Restless.
The Osmonds really have something to smile about now after today. The syndicated talk show Donny and Marie is nominated for Outstanding Talk Show, as well as a nomination for Outstanding Talk Show Host(s). Joining the family duo on the list are the syndicated Live With Regis, with Regis Philbin receiving an nod for talk show host, The Montel Williams Show, The Rosie O'Donnell Show (O'Donnell also got a nomination for host) and ABC's The View, whose co-hosts Barbara Walters, Meredith Viera, Star Jones, Joy Behar and Lisa Ling all received nods as well.
The Outstanding Children's Series nominees encompass a wide spectrum in children's programming including PBS' Between the Lion, The Disney Channel's Even Stevens, PBS' Reading Rainbow, The Discovery Channel's Real Kids, Real Adventures and PBS' Zoom.
The awards presentation will be broadcast on NBC, live from the Radio City Music Hall on Friday, May 18 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
Daytime Emmys voters apparently feel they've paid their debt to Susan Lucci. The soap opera diva, who broke America's most infamous losing streak last year when she finally claimed the best drama actress trophy, got zippo today as nominations were announced in New York for the 2000 edition of the Daytime Emmys.
Moving into the unlucky Lucci spotlight this year is none other than Regis Philbin. Up for two Emmys, including a curious daytime nod as host of a nighttime game show (for -- what else? -- "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire"), Philbin has never, ever won. Not even a combat-pay trophy for doing time with Kathie Lee Gifford all these years.
For the record, Kathie Lee Gifford has never won a Daytime Emmy for "Live! With Regis & Kathie Lee," either, but no one really seems to get choked up over Kathie Lee, so let's move on.
"Live!" is up again for best talk show. They'll compete against "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" (syndicated), "The View" (ABC), "Donny & Marie" (syndicated) and the soon-to-be-late "Martin Short Show" (syndicated). (Note: Oprah removed herself from the competition last year, figuring there were only so many shiny paperweights her mantle could hold.) Regis and Kathie Lee, meanwhile, are also jointly nominated for best talk-show host.
The Daytime Emmys -- as opposed to the Primetime Emmys -- honors shows (cartoons, talk shows, soap operas, etc.) that traditionally air during, yes, the day. Don't ask us about the "Millionaire" thing. Regis doesn't understand it, either. Said so himself: "I don't know why a primetime game show ends up on the Daytime Emmys," Philbin told The Associated Press today.
In the battle of the soap opera drama queens, Finola Hughes ("All My Children, ABC), Susan Flannery ("The Bold and the Beautiful," CBS), Hillary B. Smith ("One Life to Live," ABC), Jeanne Cooper ("The Young and the Restless," CBS) and Jess Walton ("The Young and the Restless," CBS) will compete where Lucci won't. (Translation: They're all up for best lead drama actress.)
Nominated for best lead drama actor: David Canary ("All My Children," ABC), Anthony Geary ("General Hospital," ABC), Robert Woods ("One Life to Live, ABC), Peter Bergman ("The Young and the Restless," CBS) and Eric Braeden ("The Young and the Restless," CBS).
