E! News is headed to the Emmys!
That’s right, E! News has been nominated for not one, but two Daytime Emmy Awards! Nominations for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced earlier today.
In addition to nabbing a nom for Outstanding Entertainment News Program, E! was also recognized with an Outstanding Special Class Special nomination for E! Breaking News: Joan Rivers.
“I’m incredibly proud of our two nominations. On behalf of the entire E! team we are so thankful to the Academy and our fans,” co-host Giuliana Rancic said in a statement Tuesday.

“We’re bumping Bieber out of our lead story tonight for this news,” Rancic adds. “Just kidding Beliebers, we would never do that to you.”
This is the second year in a row that E! News has been nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Entertainment News Program. Although the show didn’t take home the trophy last year, Rancic did win the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards’ Fan Favorite competition after fans overwhelmingly voted her their favorite.
The 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will air live from Beverly Hills on Saturday, April 26.
