Daytime Emmy Awards nominations: Netflix, Amazon muscle in

Daytime Emmy Awards give shout-outs to Ellen DeGeneres, "General Hospital," more

The Daytime Emmy Award nominations landed Tuesday, with usual suspects such as Ellen DeGeneres and "General Hospital" getting plenty of attention.

But there were also quite a few nods for Amazon and Netflix, in yet another sign of the growing clout of digital purveyors of programming.

The most-nominated programs were soaps: ABC's "General Hospital" (28) and CBS' "The Young and the Restless" (25) and "The Bold and the Beautiful" (19). They will face off in the outstanding drama series category.

In the entertainment talk show category, "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" (10 nominations total) will compete against CBS' "The Talk" (seven).

Especially in the kids' categories, Amazon and Netflix are beginning to make a real impact.

Amazon netted five nominations for its stop-motion animated series "Tumble Leaf," which premiered last May.

Netflix also drew five nods for "All Hail King Julien," the spinoff of the "Madagascar" feature film franchise.
