Philbin up for Emmys after losing 8 times

Regis Philbin, an eight-time loser in the Daytime Emmy awards race, now has a couple more chances to change his luck, reports People magazine.

He's up for two Daytime Emmys: for "Live!" (as a solo host — no nods for either Kathie Lee Gifford or the newly installed Kelly Ripa) and for "Who Wants to be a Millionaire," despite the fact that the quiz show airs in prime time. The Daytime Emmys will be dispensed on May 18 from New York's Radio City Music Hall.
