CBS' "The Young and the Restless" earned a leading 18 Daytime Emmy nominations on Wednesday, including best soap opera, although no one from its cast was nominated in the lead acting categories.

Ellen DeGeneres, whose hit daytime series won best talk show for the last two years and who also was named best talk show host last year, has a chance to repeat in both categories. Her show earned 11 nominations overall.

After many years of being held in New York, the Daytime Emmys are moving west. The 33rd annual awards ceremony will be held at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on April 28, televised by ABC.

ABC's "General Hospital," which has won eight Daytime Emmys as best soap opera, was nominated for that award again. It will vie with "The Young and the Restless," CBS' "Guiding Light" and CBS' "As the World Turns."

Along with DeGeneres' series, nominees for best talk show were "The View," "Live With Regis & Kelly" and "Dr. Phil."
