The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced their nominees for the 44th Annual Daytime Emmys on Wednesday, and Nichelle Nichols, Armin Shimerman, Whoopi Goldberg, Nicolas Coster and Kelsey Grammer are among those beaming up nominations.

Nichols, Star Trek's legendary Uhura, is up for Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her heartbreaking turn as Neil's dying mother, Lucinda Winters, on the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless.

Shimerman, Deep Space Nine's Quark, has been nominated in the Outstanding Supporting or Guest Actor in a Digital Daytime Drama Series category for his turn as Max on the Amazon series Red Bird.

Goldberg, Star Trek: The Next Generation's Guinan, shares her nomination as Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host with her fellow ladies on ABC's The View, among them Joy Behar, Raven Symone and Candace Cameron Bure.

Coster, who played Admiral Anthony Haftel in the TNG episode "The Offspring," earned his nomination in the same category as Shimerman. He portrayed Mayor Jack Madison on Amazon's The Bay The Series.

Grammer, who guest starred as Captain Morgan Bateson in the TNG episode "Cause and Effect," is nominated in the Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program category for his voice role as Blinky on Trollhunters.

The 44th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony will be held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium on Sunday, April 30th. Good luck to the nominees.
