- Outstanding Daytime Talk Series
- Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, and Video

J-Hud will be going up against some stiff competition in each category with the likes of “The Kelly Clarkson Show” which led the talk shows Emmys with 11 nominations, followed by “The Drew Barrymore Show” (7), and “Sherri,” “Tamron Hall,” and “The View” with four nominations apiece.
The Daytime Emmy Awards airs June 16 at 9 p.m. EDT on CBS.
