HollyWho-Knew that General Hospital was more of a smash hit than Oprah Winfrey’s talk show? Queen O got 4 nods while the soap opera scored 18!

The Daytime Emmy nominations were announced this morning, and we’re a little baffled as to why Oprah Winfrey got way less love than long-running soap opera General Hospital. Clearly the Academy of Arts & Sciences didn’t get the screener of her hot Twilight Saga: Eclipse episode!

Apart from Oprah & GH, comedienne extraordinaire Ellen DeGeneres topped the list with a whopping 8 nods, while the Today show, Rachael Ray, Regis & Kelly and Bonnie Hunt all received three nominations. And let’s not forget Martha Stewart, who received two nods for her domestic goddess efforts.

The Daytime Emmy Awards will take place in Sin City (Las Vegas) on CBS June 27. Will you be tuning in?
