Behind an outstanding slate of animation, young children’s programming, and special activations, Nickelodeon locked in 18 nominations for the 2017 Daytime Emmy Awards, a rousing affirmation of the net’s broad impact and influence on the television landscape. MTV’s Transformation, which documents the struggles of young transgender individuals, grabbed an additional nomination, bringing Viacom’s total to 19.
Nick’s Peter Rabbit earned a trio of nominations, while Pig Goat Banana Cricket, Dino Dan: Trek’s Adventures, Mutt & Stuff, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, and Bubble Guppies each snagged two. Harvey Beaks and Wallykazam! also grabbed one nod apiece, while nominations for the 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards (one nomination), Kids Pick the President (two), and the Ultimate Hallowen Haunted House 360 Challenge (one) underscore the strength of the network’s special programs and initiatives.
Congratulations to all of the nominees. The National Academy of Arts & Sciences will announce the winners of the 44th Annual Daytime Emmys on April 30.
