‘Santa Barbara’ Leads Daytime Emmy Parade

Times Staff Writer

NBC’s “Santa Barbara,” which won the Emmy last year as TV’s best daytime soap opera, led the field again Thursday as nominations for the 16th annual daytime awards were announced by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

“Santa Barbara” captured 13 nominations to nose out CBS’ “As the World Turns” with 12 and CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” with 10. ABC’s “All My Children” garnered seven nominations.

All four were nominated as outstanding drama series, along with CBS’ “Guiding Light” and ABC’s “General Hospital.” Winners will be announced during ceremonies that will be broadcast on NBC June 29 from New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Emmys in the creative arts categories will be presented June 24 in a non-televised ceremony.

Among the 178 nominations for programming between March 6, 1988, and March 5, 1989, CBS collected the most with 68, one fewer than last year. NBC came in second with 38, ABC got 26, PBS snared 25 and syndicated programs received 21. Among the cable-TV contenders, HBO led with three.


In the category of children’s programming, CBS’ “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” netted eight nominations for an episode entitled “To Tell the Tooth,” but the series was not nominated for outstanding children’s series, losing out to five PBS programs: “Reading Rainbow,” “Sesame Street,” “3-2-1 Contact,” “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” and “Newton’s Apple.”

Phil Donahue, who won his ninth Emmy last year as daytime’s best talk show host, was nominated again Thursday, along with Oprah Winfrey, who won the award in 1987, Sally Jessy Raphael, Larry King and the team of Linda Dano and Nancy Glass from Lifetime cable’s “Attitudes.”
