TODAY show’s Savannah Guthrie, Craig Melvin, and more co-hosts have been snubbed by a major award show.
Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager, meanwhile, are being recognized by the very same event.
The nominations for the 2022 People’s Choice Awards were announced on Wednesday, ahead of the show’s December 6 air date.
The award show recognizes stars all throughout the entertainment industry, including movies, TV, music, social media, and podcasts.
One of the big TV categories is the People’s Choice for Daytime Talk Show of 2022
Despite eight nominees being chosen for the group, many Today hosts were not included.
Live with Kelly and Ryan, The Drew Barrymore Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Jennifer Hudson Show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, The View, and Good Morning America were all nominated.
Today was also chosen, though Hoda and Jenna’s spinoff was specifically the edition of the show that was nominated.
While the duo earned a PCA nomination, Hoda’s co-hosts on Today’s flagship show – Savannah, Craig, Al Roker, Carson Daly – and on the Third Hour – Sheinelle Jones and Dylan Dreyer – were snubbed.
Originally, Hoda hosted the show with Kathie Lee Gifford, from 2008 to 2019.

Following Kathie Lee’s departure, Hoda continued on with the fourth-hour segment of the Today show with a new co-host, Jenna.
The two have been hosting the show together since 2019 and are known for their fun banter, as well as emotional conversations.
On Thursday, Jenna burst into tears live on air during one of those emotional segments.
She and Hoda led a discussion about a breast cancer survivor whose dream was to dance on Broadway.
The woman, Carina Ranieri, said that dancing after her surgery and recovery was the one thing that kept her going.
After her video ended, Hoda and Jenna clapped and held back tears.
Hoda said it was amazing, while Jenna sniffled and tried to find the right words to describe how she felt.
With a cracked voice, she said: “She is so right that your dreams don’t die.”
Throughout her statement, Jenna sniffled and wiped away a tear at the end.
