NEW YORK - Often snubbed for a Daytime Emmy in the past, Susan Lucci has been jilted as a nominee this year.

Missing along with the "All My Children" veteran is "The View," overlooked as a best talk nominee, though that ABC show's five panellists (Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters) are sharing a nomination for best host, competing against Ellen DeGeneres, Rachael Ray and "Live!" co-hosts Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa.

Nominations for the 36th Annual Daytime Emmys were announced Thursday by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, which administers them.

Overall, PBS led in nominations with 56, followed by ABC (50), syndicated programming (49), CBS (30) and NBC (20).

Vanessa Williams will host the awards broadcast, which will air live from Los Angeles on Aug. 30 on the CW network.

Debbi Morgan ("All My Children"), Maura West ("As the World Turns"), Susan Haskell ("One Life to Live"), Susan Flannery ("The Bold and the Beautiful") and Jeanne Cooper ("The Young and the Restless") are the nominees for lead actress in a drama series.

Thorsten Kaye ("All My Children"), Peter Reckell ("Days of Our Lives"), Anthony Geary ("General Hospital"), Christian LeBlanc ("The Young and the Restless") and Daniel Cosgrove (the soon-to-be ending "Guiding Light") are nominated in the lead dramatic actor category.

Public Broadcasting Service dominated the outstanding children's show category with "Fetch! With Ruff Ruffman," "From the Top at Carnegie Hall" and "Postcards From Buster," which also included Discovery Kids' "Adventure Camp."

The lifetime achievement award goes to PBS' "Sesame Street."
