EmptyJUDGES GET A NEW TRIAL
There's a new category this year: Legal/Courtroom program. The nominees are "Cristina's Court," "Judge David Young," "Judge Hatchett Show," "Judge Judy" and "The People's Court." It's been a tough fight in the Daytime Emmys for the courtroom shows, which have been a staple of daytime TV since the early '80s. But they haven't made their mark on the Daytime Emmy voters, who have continually snubbed pioneer "The People's Court" as well as "Judge Judy."
FAMILIAR emmy FACES
Best actor nominees Anthony Geary, David Canary and Peter Bergman have been down this road before. Geary and Canary each have five wins, and Bergman has won three times. Last year's winner, Christian LeBlanc, was nominated again this year. He has two wins.
REALLY FAMILIAR FACE
Susan Lucci (21 noms, 1 win) was not nominated this year.
