Ellen DeGeneres just got eight more reasons to dance.
While CBS' The Young and the Restless scored a commanding 17 nominations for the 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards this morning, DeGeneres took the lead among her chatty peers, racking up the most nods among her talk-show brethren.
In addition to getting singled out with an Outstanding Talk Show Host nomination, The Ellen DeGeneres Show is also up for Outstanding Talk Show (Entertainment), vying against Rachael Ray and The View.
Notably absent from the category, however, is perpetual favorite Live With Regis & Kelly, which this year once again entered itself into the Talk Show race after last year's ill-fated foray into the Outstanding Morning Program category. While it earned a nomination last year, it ended up the biggest loser, after the two other shows in the field tied for the Emmy.
