Will 13th Time Be the Charm for Lucci? : Television: The 'All My Children' star has lost 12 times at the Daytime Emmy Awards. CBS garners 68 nominations, followed by PBS with 41.

From the Associated Press

It's deja vu all over again for Susan Lucci. The perennial runner-up was nominated Thursday for the 13th time for an Emmy Award--an honor she's already lost out on a dozen times.

Lucci was again nominated for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for her role as Erica Kane, the manipulative star of "All My Children," as nominations for the 19th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced.

Garnering the most nominations overall was CBS, which collected 68. PBS followed with 41, while ABC had 25 and NBC got 24. Syndicated programs collected 33 nominations in the 43 categories. Fox was nominated twice; HBO, Lifetime and CNN picked up single nominations.

"Guiding Light," on CBS, was the single most recognized show, with 16 nominations, followed by "The Young and the Restless," CBS, 15; "Another World," NBC, 10; and "As the World Turns," CBS, nine. Lucci's "All My Children" had eight.

Joining Lucci as best actress nominees are Elizabeth Hubbard as Lucinda Walsh on "As the World Turns"; Erika Slezak as Victoria Buchanan on "One Life to Live"; Jessica Tuck as Megan Gordon on "One Life to Live," and Jeanne Cooper as Katherine Chancellor Sterling on "The Young and the Restless."

In children's programming, another annual nominee led the pack: "Sesame Street" was nominated for nine awards. The Disney Channel had 17 nominations, while Nickelodeon received four.

Winners will be announced during an NBC telecast June 23, with Phil Donahue and Lucci as co-hosts. The show will be aired in prime time for the second straight year.

Donahue is nominated for outstanding talk-service show host, as was Oprah Winfrey, last year's winner. The "Donahue" show collected two other nominations.

Tops among the talk show crowd was "The Joan Rivers Show," which garnered six nominations. Top choice among game shows was "The Price Is Right," which had six nominations.
