Once again Sesame Street receives multiple Daytime Emmy nominations. This year Sesame Street tied with daytime soap opera, The Young and the Restless, for the second most Emmy nominations. General Hospital, another daytime soap opera, was number one with 23 nominations. Sesame Street and the Young and the Restless each received 16 Emmy nominations. Sesame Street received nominations in the categories: Outstanding Preschool Children’s Series ; 3 nominations for Outstanding Performer in a Children’s Series for Kevin Clash as Elmo, Carroll Spinney as Big Bird, and Leslie Carrara-Rudolph as Abby Cadabby; Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction/Set Decoration/Scenic Design; Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design/Styling; Outstanding Directing in a Children’s Series; Outstanding Achievement in Lighting Direction; Outstanding Achievement in Multiple Camera Editing; Outstanding Original Song Children/Animation; Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing –Live Action; Outstanding Special Class Directing; Outstanding Special Class Writing; Outstanding Achievement in Technical Direction/Electronic Camera/Video Control; Outstanding Writing in a Children’s Series.
With some the nominations it is pretty easy to decipher there meaning; but others have such complex titles that you have to be in the entertainment industry to really get a grasp on what it all really means. Either way, it is a huge congratulation to the folks at Sesame Street for another season of great work. Just like last year, the show received 16 Daytime Emmy nomination, but they ended taking home 8 awards. Let’s see if they are just as fortunate this year when the awards are given out in June 23rd.
