The Wendy Williams Show snagged a nomination for outstanding talk show for the 43rd annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

The ladies over at The Real—Adrienne Bailon, Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Jeannie Mai—nabbed nominations for outstanding talk show as well, in addition to nominations in the categories of hair, makeup and outstanding entertainment talk show host.

Unfortunately, the Daytime Emmy Awards will not be broadcast this year because organizers were not able to find a sponsor for the award program.

“After last year’s critically successful Daytime [Emmys] telecast [on Pop], it is with great disappointment that the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announces that there will not be a broadcast of the 43rd annual Daytime Emmy Awards,” the president of NATAS said in a press statement. “After months of negotiations to find show sponsorship, the NATAS Executive Board has decided that the current climate for awards shows prohibits the possibility of a telecast this year. With that said, we will be putting on a world-class awards celebration honoring the best and brightest of daytime television and look forward to an exciting show. All efforts regarding returning the annual gala to television in 2017 are underway.”
