'General Hospital' has 18 Daytime Emmy nominations

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — The soap opera "General Hospital" leads the way with 18 Daytime Emmy nominations.

It was also announced Wednesday that "As the World Turns," which has been canceled by CBS, has 13 nominations. CBS is airing the annual awards show from Las Vegas on June 27.

"The Young and the Restless" has 16 nominations, "Sesame Street" has 14 and "One Life to Live" has 13.

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will give a lifetime achievement award to Agnes Nixon, a creative force behind many soap operas. One was "All My Children," whose star Susan Lucci said Nixon helped create the very fabric of daytime TV.

The ladies of "The View" have a chance to repeat last year's win as best talk show hosts.
