Emmy Nomination For Resigned Elmo Puppeteer Kevin Clash


PBS' venerable children's show "Sesame Street" earned 17 Daytime Emmy nominations, including one for Kevin Clash, who played the Elmo character and resigned last November amid allegations that he sexually abused underage boys. Clash's lawyer has said that related lawsuits filed against Clash are without merit. Clash, who was nominated for outstanding performer in a children's series, played Elmo for 28 years and already has 23 Daytime Emmy awards.
