It's been an especially eventful few weeks at Food Network. Fresh off the news that Ina Garten and Bobby Flay's Barbecue Addiction, as well as Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods, are among the elite few to have received 2015 James Beard Award nominations, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences just announced that several of your favorite Food Network chefs and shows have received nominations for the 42nd annual Daytime Emmys.

Bobby and Ina continue their award-season hot streak with nominations for Outstanding Culinary Host for their work on Barefoot Contessa: Back to Basics and Bobby Flay's Barbecue Addiction, respectively. They join Danny Boome of Z Living's Good Food America, Edward Lee and Magnus Nilsson of PBS' The Mind of a Chef, and Martha Stewart for PBS' Martha Bakes.

Ina's Barefoot Contessa: Back to Basics is also nominated for Outstanding Culinary Program, as is Guy's Big Bite, hosted by Guy Fieri, and Cooking Channel's My Grandmother's Ravioli, hosted by Mo Rocca. Other nominees in the category include Martha Bakes and The Mind of a Chef, both on PBS.

Now in its fifth season, The Kitchen is being recognized with two nominations, one for Outstanding Talk Show / Informative and another for Outstanding Art Direction/Set Decoration/Scenic Design. Steve Harvey and The Dr. Oz Show, both syndicated, and ABC's The Chew also received nominations in the former category, while PBS' Sesame Street and Discover Family Channel's R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour The Series and Spooksville rounded out the latter category.

The one-hour seasonal special Thanksgiving at Bobby's, produced by Bobby Flay, Kim Martin and Kirsty Nordal, joins Cooking Channel's Taco Trip in receiving a nomination in the Outstanding Special Class Special category. Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word on MTV and E! Breaking News: Joan Rivers on E! Entertainment both received nominations as well.

Of the three nominations for Outstanding Directing in a Lifestyle/Culinary/Travel Program, two of those are for Food Network and Cooking Channel: Giada at Home, directed by Anne Fox on Food Network, and The Real Girl's Kitchen, directed by Timothy McOsker on Cooking Channel. PBS' A Chef's Life, directed by Cynthia Hill, is the third nominee in the category.
