Award ceremony on June 26th
The list of awards and nominations by Kelly Clarkson (38, "Because Of You") is impressive. From the American Music Awards (won twice) to the MTV Awards (three wins) and the Women's World Award, the singer has had numerous successes. Another honor is added this year: Clarkson is nominated for two Daytime Emmys with her talk show "The Kelly Clarkson Show". In the categories “Best Entertainment Talk Show” and “Best Hostess”, however, she has a real Emmy heavyweight as a competitor: Ellen DeGeneres (62) has had a whopping 53 nominations and 31 with “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” since 2004 Victories.
The awards will be presented in a virtual ceremony on June 26th due to the corona pandemic. Then there is a third talk show host among the nominees: Ryan Seacrest (45) gained fame in the United States primarily as a moderator of the first “American Idol” shows in the early 2000s. Odd: Seacrest also hosted the competition in 2002 when Kelly Clarkson won, which started her career as a musician. With "Live with Kelly and Ryan" the two compete for the coveted title at the Emmy Awards 18 years later.
Also nominated are the news shows "GMA3" with Michael Strahan (48), Sara Haines (42) and Keke Palmer (26) as well as the discussion group "The Talk" with Sharon Osbourne (67), Sheryl Underwood (56), Eve (41) , Marie Osmond (60) and presenter Carrie Ann Inaba (52). "GMA3" is, like the "Kelly Clarkson Show", nominated for a Daytime Emmy for the first time, "The Talk" has already won four of them.
