Going into Sunday’s Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards telecast, the Disney/ABC Television Group was the most honored television group with 50 nominations covering all genres including talk shows ("The View," "Katie" and "Live with Kelly and Michael"), game shows ("Who Wants to Be A Millionaire"), soap operas ("General Hospital" and "One Life to Live"), amongst many others.
