The 2022 Daytime Emmy Award nominations are in, and The Kelly Clarkson Show scored big with nine nods total, including Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show. Host Kelly Clarkson, of course, had the sweetest reaction to the news. See it for yourself, below: 

If the past is any indication, Clarkson could be in for another triumphant victory. At the 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in 2021, The Kelly Clarkson Show won Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host. During the virtual ceremony, Clarkson made a point to recognize everyone behind-the-scenes who made the show possible. 

"Thank you so much everybody for voting for me,” said Clarkson. “I would love to accept the award just for me, but honestly, I think everybody that's ever done a show like this knows there's a whole heap of people standing around behind the cameras. And our staff and making me look good and sound good and getting these brilliant stories and heartfelt stories that we get to share with everybody, and thank you to my band...I thank you for the award, but honestly, so many people are deserving of this—not just me." 

Days of Our Lives came in as another impressive NBC nominee with a hefty 11 nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series. Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem (available on Peacock) was also nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, making it the first spin-off ever to be nominated alongside the original. 

The 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will air June 24.
