Well, well, well. It looks as if ABC Daytime is putting their super hero cross promotional abilities to good use once again. TV Guide is reporting that the nominations for the 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be announced on The View on Wednesday, April 30th.
ABC has lined up several stars from all three networks to help announce the nominations live. They include All My Children's Rebecca Budig and Cameron Mathison, As the World Turns' Van Hansis, Alison Sweeney and Bryan Dattilo of Days of Our Lives, Marcy Rylan of Guiding Light, and Farah Fath and John-Paul Lavoiser of One Life to Live.
This isn't the first (and probably won't be the last) time that ABC has used its knack for cross promotion to announce the nominations on The View. And you know what, I'm glad. I always look forward to any promotion that the soaps can get and lets face it, CBS doesn't do the greatest job when it is the one airing the Daytime Emmy Awards.
As an aside. Does anyone else find it odd that no one from General Hospital is helping to announce the nominations? Of all the ABC soaps I would expect it to have at least one actor there.
