As in previous years, "The Young And The Restless" leads the pack.

CBS' long-running soap opera picked up the most nominations for the Daytime Emmy Awards, earning 23 nods. Its nearest competitor and closest rival, ABC's "General Hospital," picked up 19 nods.

Children's program "Sesame Street" earned 17 nominations, including four for controversial puppeteer Kevin Clash, who resigned last year after allegations of sexual abuse of young boys. This is Clash's last nomination after playing the lovable Elmo for 28 years. He already has 23 Daytime Emmys under his belt.

Other notable nominations include Kelly Ripa, who's nominated after her first year without her former co-host, Regis Philbin, and Steve Harvey, who received two nominations, one for his talk show duties on "Steve Harvey," and the other for his hosting on "Family Feud."

You can also expect a lengthy tribute to one of daytime's most famous faces, Jeanne Cooper, who passed away last month. (Though nothing has been confirmed outright.)

The 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be held on June 16 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Emmy telecast will air Sunday, June 16, on 8:00 p.m. ET on HLN.
