Alex Trebek has been posthumously nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for his work as the host of Jeopardy! Trebek, who passed away last November after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, has been nominated an incredible 28 previous times for Outstanding Game Show Host as the on-air emcee of Jeopardy! If Trebek wins, it will cap his career with a third consecutive Daytime Emmy in the category; he won Outstanding Game Show Host in 2019 and 2020.
The winners of this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards will be announced on June 28.
In 2011, Trebek was also honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Daytime Emmys.
He first won the award in 1989, and then again in 1990, 2003, 2006, and 2008.
