The talk show host's 'The Ellen DeGeneres' show will go up against 'Live With Regis and Kelly', 'The View' and 'The Talk' - which features Sharon Osbourne on its panel - for the Outstanding Talk Show award at the ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on June 23.

Ellen's 12 nods gives her the highest number of nods for a chat show this year, with Oprah Winfrey's self-titled series up for four accolades including Outstanding Directing in a Talk Show.

ABC soap opera 'General Hospital' earned the biggest number of nominations with 23, and kids TV series 'Sesame Street' managed 16 nods for prizes such as Outstanding Pre-School Children's Series.

'The View' producer Bill Geddie will be handed a Lifetime Achievement Award at the event for his 30-year service to the TV industry as a producer, writer and director.

Malachy Wienges, chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, said in a statement: ''Bill Geddie is an icon in the television industry.

''When he and Barbara Walters created 'The View' 15 years ago, they introduced a new and innovative daytime television talk show format. We at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences are proud to have Bill receive our 2012 Daytime Lifetime Achievement Award.''
