Dick Van Dyke is vying for a historic Daytime Emmy at age 98.

The actor was nominated Friday as guest performer in a daytime drama series for his part as amnesiac Timothy Robicheaux on Peacock's "Days of Our Lives."

Van Dyke is the oldest Daytime Emmy nominee. Producer Norman Lear was 100 when he received his final Primetime Emmy nomination in 2022 and died the next year.

Among those Van Dyke is up against is Australian actor Guy Pearce of Amazon Freevee's "Neighbours."

Van Dyke has won four Primetime Emmys, including three in the 1960s for his classic comedy series "The Dick Van Dyke Show."

Actor-singer Selena Gomez is nominated in the culinary series category for her Food Network special "Selena + Chef: Home for the Holidays." Also nominated in that category is Food Network's "Valerie's Home Cooking," the show hosted by actor Valerie Bertinelli that ended last year.

CBS is ending "The Talk" after its 15th season later this year. The show's Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O'Connell and Sheryl Underwood were nominated for daytime talk series host.

The lead actress nominees are: Tamara Braun of "Days of Our Lives," Finola Hughes and Cynthia Watros of "General Hospital," Katherine Kelly Lang and Annika Noelle of "The Bold and the Beautiful" and Michelle Stafford of "The Young and the Restless."

The lead actor nominees are: Eric Braeden of "The Young and the Restless," Scott Clifton, Thorsten Kaye and John McCook of "The Bold and the Beautiful" and Eric Martsolf of "Days of Our Lives."

The Daytime Emmys will be presented June 7 in Los Angeles and air live on CBS. The show is returning to its usual schedule after being postponed until last December because of strikes by Hollywood actors and writers. The hosts and Lifetime Achievement honorees will be announced later.
