Facebook Watch’s The Mind Of A Chef and PBS’s A Chef’s Life are among the top non-fiction nominees vying for a Daytime Emmy Award.

Hosted by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, the 45th annual event recognizes outstanding achievement in all fields of daytime television production. The awards are presented to individuals and programs broadcast from 2 a.m. and 6 p.m. during the 2017 calendar year.

Facebook’s streaming platform Watch will vie for an outstanding culinary Daytime Emmy with its acclaimed Mind of A Chef (pictured) series (which aired on PBS from 2012-2017) alongside the likes of Food Network’s Giada Entertains and Valerie’s Home Cooking, and PBS’s A Chef’s Life and Lidia’s Kitchen.

In the outstanding lifestyle program category, nominees are PBS’s Ask This Old House and This Old House, Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family, NBC’s Naturally, Danny Seo, and DIY Network’s Renovation Realities: Ben and Ginger.

Syndicated series Family Feud is up against 33-time Daytime Emmy-winner Jeopardy!, CBS’s Let’s Make a Deal and The Price is Right and syndicated trivia series Who Wants to be a Millionaire in the outstanding game show category.

“The record-breaking number of entries and the incredible level of talent and craft reflected in this year’s nominees gives us all ample reasons to celebrate,” said David Michaels, SVP and executive producer for the Daytime Emmy Awards, in a statement.

The ceremony for the Daytime Emmy Awards will take place at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California on April 29.
