General Hospital earned 18 Daytime Emmy nominations today. And while I'm sure that's all fine and good for soap fans, I'm more preoccupied with the fact that my favorite talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, earned eight nominations -- including one for "Outstanding Talk Show"! Seriously, how could it not win?

And while we're on the subject of talk shows ... a couple of quick comments about the other nominees:

Anyone else annoyed to see The View bagging five nominations after the disgusting Elisabeth Hasselbeck scandal of late? (I think it's safe to say I'm Team Erin Andrews.)

And why is it that Oprah only got four nods? Say what you want about Oprah, but that show is GREAT! (And I'm absolutely not just saying that because I got to go last week and saw a sneak preview of Eat, Pray, Love.)

The Emmys will take place on June 27 in Las Vegas; for a complete list of nominees, click the link above.

Did any of the nominations surprise you? Which of your favorite shows were left out?
