Sesame Street up for an Emmy

The nominations for the 32nd annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced in New York, and Sesame Street is up for the award. The Show is nominated several times for several awards. The Daytime Emmy Awards will be handed out at Radio City Music Hall in New York on May 20. The show will be hosted by talk show host Maury Povich and will air on CBS. This is not the first time Sesame Street has received Emmy nominations; and let's hope it's not the last. We'll see in May if the show can bring in another batch of Emmy Awards this year.
