General Hospital'General Hospital' leads all soaps with 21 total Daytime Emmy nominations. PBS leads ABC in total nominations (57), but the net's 'General Hospital' -- its last remaining soap come January 2012, unless Katie Couric moves in -- leads the pack with 21 total nominations. Besides the Outstanding Drama Series nomination, stars Jonathan Jackson, Laura Wright, Maurice Benard, Nancy Lee Grahn, Jason Thompson, Chad Duell and Lexi Ainsworth all received nods from the Academy.

'The Young and the Restless' received 20 nominations, 'Sesame Street' grabbed 16, 'All My Children' got 13 and 'One Life to Live' trailed with 12. With the sting of cancellation still present, 'All My Children' has picked up a Daytime Emmy nomination, but no such luck for its star Susan Lucci.
