The majority of daytime talk's biggest names (Ellen DeGeneres and Kelly Ripa to name a few!) have skipped out on the Daytime Emmy Awards in recent years. Could that be changing this year? TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan posed the question to Scot Safon, executive vice-president and general manager of HLN, which will air the kudocast on June 16. Said Safon:
"We are outreaching as aggressively as possible to all the nominees," Safon says. "We want them to know this year is important. The themes that will rock this show are themes they will be proud to be associated with. To be in that room as part of the daytime community will be an incredible opportunity. The show is not just an announcement of winners. It's a celebration people are going to remember for a long time to come." READ MORE

Additionally, one contestant will be able to play "3 Strikes" for a brand new Ferrari! READ MORE
