Well it's about time, no nomination for Susan Lucci. She's never really deserved one, she's only gotten them because of her popularity as her acting isn't at all natural. The one time she did win was a pity win, thought they'd give her one so she and people could shut up about her streak of nominations without ever getting a win. There, end of rant. :)

Lucci hasn't been nominated since I believe 2002. Lack of a nom this year is not a snub and also not a surprise, given the trend. She has an Emmy from 1999, a richly deserved one. Maybe someday she'll add another, but she hasn't had the right story in recent years.

It's really quite simple, Susan Lucci is a bad actress.

Susan Lucci is well-liked, but her acting is atrocious (especially when she goes "off-site" to be in Lifetime movies and such), which is why her constant nominations were so cruel, in a way. If it weren't for the fact that All My Children is now a shade of what it once was, I might actually be concerned. But I'm not.

As for The View, the ladies on the panel have long said that they will never win Daytime Emmy awards because there is at least one person on the show that people will hate. I guess the nomination committee finally got that memo, and didn't even bother this time. Interesting, especially given all the press time the show got during the election cycle. Ah, well.

The Daytime Emmys finally got it right, they could teach the primetime Emmy people something.

I don't think the View deserves a nomination, the "ladies" have big mouths and constantly talk over one another. Joy seems to be in a terminal bad mood. Barbara is constantly stating that she doesn't give her political view, who does she think she's kidding? I can hardly stand to watch the show and often don't. In my opinion, no Emmy is deserved, two thumbs up to the committee that decides this!!!

I agree. The View deserving some sort of accolades is just as ridiculous as the idea that Sarah Michelle Gellar was "snubbed" for not getting acting awards.
