Now that the nominations have been announced, nominees are weighing in on their good fortune. 

Jill Farren Phelps, Executive Producer of General Hospital with 18 nominations states, "Needless to say, we're all very thrilled about our nominations.  It's gratifying to be nominated and especially so this year when so many of our brilliant behind the scenes people were recognized by their peers.  It was a great day for General Hospital."

Bold and the Beautiful, winner of last year's Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series, was awarded 11 nominations this year, including Outstanding Drama Series once again, and everyone over at B&B couldn't be more delighted.

Meantime -- and as you can imagine, Days of our Lives stars are likewise as pleased about their nominations.

“I am a bit surprised to be honest… It's an incredible honor to be included amongst actors of such great caliber." – James Scott (EJ DiMera, Days of our Lives)

“I got an email and thought it was a joke. I was thinking, ‘Wow, this is a REALLY mean prank’ but then the DAYS publicist called and told me it was true…I am beyond honored!” – Shelley Hennig (Stephanie Johnson, Days of our Lives)

“After being on the show for eleven years, being nominated for the very first time feels absolutely amazing!” – Arianne Zucker (Nicole Walker, Days of our Lives)

“I’m so proud of everybody; our show is beautifully represented with the talent nominees this year!” – Molly Burnett (Melanie Layton, Days of our Lives)

"This came as quite a shock. One of my mom's friends called to tell her because she saw it online and my mom called me and I was speechless.  I am really very, very honored and humbled to be nominated along side all these amazing actors. I am also looking forward to seeing some of my ex-castmates at the awards.” – Dylan Michael Patton (Ex-Will Horton, Days of our Lives).
