And we’re off!  The 40th annual Daytime Emmy Awards kicks-off next month with some very crucial deadlines as laid out today by The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Senior Executive Director, David Michaels!

In addition to the key dates for performers and judging below, there are a few changes in the rules for Daytime performers.  In the Pre-Nomination acting categories, performers are now allowed to submit a three minute scene, as opposed to last year’s which was only two minutes.  Those submissions this year will be pre-screened to ensure they don’t exceed this time limit.

Also, The New Approaches category had been divided up into two:  One category titled:  New Approaches- Enhancement To A Daytime Program or Series will be for material that enhances and supports existing broadcast programming and the second category, New Approaches- Original Daytime Program or Series, will be for original new product. Both categories encompass all Daytime genres.   Here are the key dates For Emmy 40!

January 18, 2013: Deadline for Drama Performer Judges to Register
January 25, 2013: Deadline for Drama Performer Pre-Nom Clip Submissions
January 30, 2013: Deadline for all other Judges to Register

Who really cares if the rules change….OLTL won’t be among one of the shows listed, so it doesn’t even matter. They got ripped off last year, and I have completely lost all faith in the Daytime Emmy’s…just a pointless award show.

Patrick

I agree with you 100 percent! OLTL was the best soap for many years, it was never given the respect it deserved from ABC . It’s stars never appeared on any “Dancing” or talk shows. Never any night time promotions the NBC does for DOOL.

Now GH has the OLTL team over there making it a great show again. They reference OLTL often and that is a gift to all of us fans.

Torrey
Torrey

Totally agree with you….OLTL was always treated like the red-headed step child. ABC never did promotions for the show, and never shown the light on the best show on their network. It was always about AMC & GH…no matter how poorly they were performing. And now that the OLTL characters are on GH making it tolerable to watch, I find myself not even tuning in because I’d rather see them all in LLanview then have a few of them in Port Charles. It’s just not the same for me. I miss Viki, Clint, Dorian, and all of my other LLanview faves. Since the cancellation, ABC has completely lost me….I tried to support GH, but watching just leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

I want Sharon Case to win for her role again. She was off the chain this year and took quit a beating for her role controversy but she handled it like a star!

Torrey
Torrey

Sharon Case won’t win unless she is in the Outstanding Supporting Actress Category….because you know they are going to give that to Susan Flannery from B&B. I believe that Sharon did an excellent job with her storyline, but if I know the Emmy’s they will give it to Susan. (granted she did do a wonderful job with her material.) The Emmy’s have become a place where it’s the same people nominated and winning every year. Has become a complete snooze fest

Charles

I second that Sharon Case for best actress. If she don’t win i’ll never watch it again

Amanda

Sharon Case all the way baby 🙂

I mean listen to us, trying to have faith in the Daytime Emmy’s when they will forever go down in history as making the biggest mistake in daytime history……not giving Trevor St. John the Emmy for Outstanding Leading Actor in 2009 when he was doing the Execution scenes. That will forever go down in history as one of the BEST Episodes and THE BEST Performances in Daytime!!

Torrey

Correction….it was in 2006…but still the Emmy’s made a mistake…LOL

OLTL Can Be Nominated As It Was On Part Of Jan 2012

The Emmy’s are a joke- nominations are based on a 3 minute clip- how can you judge an actors overall performance for the year based on that. One actor can have a one good scene the whole year and they win. I stopped watching Daytime and Nighttime Emmy’s a long time ago- I used to like SOD awards at least that was based on the fans who actually watch the shows unlike most of the members of the Emmy committee.

Torrey
Torrey

Exactly!!! The SOD awards was a more accurate Awards Ceremony….Because the people who spend the entire year watching, make the decisions.

Soapluv
Soapluv

That’s just the point…no one is attempting to judge overall performance for the entire year. It’s one pivotal scene, submitted by the actor.

If Sharon Case doesn’t get an nomination this year, then I will have lost all hope with the Emmys

Sharon Case better win!!!! 🙂

I just want to see Sharon Case win for Young and The Restless

Soapluv

That’s impossible. There is no such thing as winning for a specific show. It’s winner take all, across all four shows for any given category.

Sammy

I hope Sharon who plays Sharon Newman wins the best actress for the second time. She deserves it <3

Sharon Case for Young and The Restless best actress 🙂

Ditto!

The whole thing is a joke! Unless the entire voting process is revamped, I’ll only watch to see who’s there and what they are wearing.

Yawn ….don’t care anymore – unless Jason Thompson wins an Emmy for his scenes concerning Robin’s “death” and memorial.
He deserves it !

OLTL should win some awards which they got cheated out of last time..This is their last
time for the Daytime Emmy Awards…………………..They passed by Erika Slezak & others…………………………………..

Soapluv

You mean you want OLTL to get a sympathy win? Uh uh. The old version is done but they have new hope for online recognition with new writers and the re-boot. They have a lot of support.

susan M.

I am a die-hard OLTL fan ! It was and is still my #1 soap of all time. No sympathy vote at all. OLTL deserves to WIN hands down! In my book OLTL
is the best soap! Hope we don’t have to pay to watch OLTL on line w/Hulu. I don’t want to pay to watch my soaps. My cable bill is high plus I pay for phone& computer.

susan M.
susan M.

And OLTL was omitted from a lot of the catagories also!!!!!!!! They deserve to be nominated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In all catagories that matter. OLTL was my favorite soap of all time…………………….

Derrick
Derrick

Sharon Case for Lead Actress!
B&B better submit Stephanie’s death! That will win them Best Drama!

cc

Those are the two I would pick. I thought Sharon Case then I saw the ending with Brooke and Stephanie’s death and said that’s the two leading wins. But Case did a great job the entire year so she deserves it more

Would be nice if OLTL received a Best Drama nod for the two weeks it was on in Jan 2012. Doubt there will be any acting nods since there wasn’t too much dramatic acting going on at that point – after all, we were being set-up for the great ProspectPark con. But we’ll see. Gosh I wonder have many emmy noms the Chew, The Revolution and Katie get this year; all of them Outstanding Puke!!!!!!!!!

Sharon Newman will win. She was the most talked about and so diverse in her role awesome girl awesome

Dmitri

Molly Burnett and Eileen Davidson should win something for DOOL, and Ari Zucker.

I only hope the Academy can restore integrity and lustre to these honors as they once had. The recent Vegas, CBS, and HLN efforts were less than grand. These awards really used to be lovely affairs, ones fans looked forward to. Now with only four series in daytime drama categories, unless they include little-seen web series, I am not sure what to expect. Even winners are not feted in the after glow and are not easily remembered. Too early to do any predictions now.

Christy

from the talks of this past year’s award show, OLTL could enter for this next year’s awards since they were still on the air 2012… I do hope they get some awards AND a very nice tribute that was sorely missing from this year’s show.

Christy
Christy

also – they need another category:

WORST New Approaches- Enhancement To A Daytime Program or Series for The Replacement, oops, no it was Repulsive, no wait it was forgetable…. it was, um, the Revolution!

give a group award to the dumbest tv executives in regards to daytime soaps… gee, wonder who would win that?! ha!
