And away we go! Daytime Emmy time has begun with an official announcement today from The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) with some key information!

First, entries for the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are now being accepted and submissions are open in all 86 Daytime categories.  In addition, registration is open for all qualified judges to evaluate entries.  And in some news for daytime fans, the dates for the 43rd annual Daytime Emmys ceremonies have been revealed. The Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards will take place on Friday, April 29th, 2016 while the Daytime Emmy Awards will take place on Sunday, May 1, 2016.   Both events will take place in Los Angeles, California with the venues still to be determined.

“After last year’s overwhelming response, it is with great excitement and pride that we announce, today, the opening for submissions in all Daytime Emmy Award genres,” said Bob Mauro, President, NATAS. “Having raised the Daytime franchise to compete with the other premier awards shows on television, we are anticipating a record year for entries and look forward to another outstanding celebration of everything that makes Daytime television special and unique.”

“Daytime television continues to evolve and each year I am humbled by the depth of talent and production that takes place day in and day out in our industry,” said David Michaels, Senior Executive Director, Daytime Emmy Awards. “With the proliferation of new programming and the continuous innovations in how, where and when we watch Daytime television, I am looking forward to another year of growth and excellence for the Daytime genre.”

The Daytime Emmy Awards recognize outstanding achievement in Daytime programming broadcast between the hours of 2:00AM and 6:00PM, by conferring annual awards of merit in various categories. The presentation of these awards is intended to be an incentive for the continued pursuit of excellence. Eligible programs must have originally aired between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015.

Regarding submissions, NATAS is offering two closing dates: an “early deadline” provides entrants a lower fee if they submit by November 23, 2015. The final deadline for all submissions is December 22, 2015. Judges of entries to the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards must be qualified as a peer in their craft and active members in either NATAS or ATAS (Television Academy).  Complete rules can be found here.

Great I look forward to the daytime Emmys after last year was so much better than it had been in so many years. It was also fun to live tweet while that was on. It’s fun to live tweet on most things on TV.

I do not watch the Emmys.. The soap awards in comparision of time devoted for them and the whole of daytime tv is not interesting to me as I do not watch daytime tv to care of other shows .. Also– ALL the soaps have great performances from great actors but not all will win, even if they deserve to win, and I don’t like that .. I would imagine Tony/Luke will get his 9th emmy And Ron will get one for the 50th anniversary week of the black and white show which is renowned as an all time soap… Read more »

Nominees need to include Melissa Clair Egan and Justin Hartley as Chelsea and Adam on Y&R. Finola Hughes, Maura West from GH and James Read and Robert Scott Wilson from DAYS. The rest I could care less. Just leave Peggy McKay out of the running and Hunter King needs to go to acting school. How she won two previous awards is beyond me.

The actors need to submit themselves.. Nobody nominates them.
Some submit others do not..
f it were me- I would not submit myself and put myself through that folly..

I agree; Hunter is gawdawful.. I was shocked when she got an award..

Peggy Mccay has given great performance so far this year.

Oh I couldn’t agree more but Hunter King is a close friend to the boss so you know she’ll win again. It is a shame she should never have won any of the awards. Hopefully Halloween night party she’s the one that dies. I believe the 4 people that worked their butts off are Melissa C.Egan/Justin Hartley( Adam 7 Chelsea from Y& R and B&B Thorsten Kaye/Linsey Godfrey (Ridge & Caroline)

James Read should be nominated and then go on to win. He more than deserves the Emmy.

B&B will get a boatload of nominations due to their transgender storytline involving Maya, Rick, and Nicole.

Kassie DePaiva deserves an Emmy. Her performances for Paige’s death scenes were fabulous. Hope she submits a nomination!

sarah

Im expecting alot of nominations from B&B most likely Karla Mosley, Jacob Young, Linsey Godfrey, Thorstan Kaye, Jacqueline MacInnis Wood, Person Fode, Reign Edwards, Winsor Harmon & Ashlyn Peirce. Also I will be very disappointed if Karla doesn’t submit in the leading actress category so I’m counting that. I’m taking Brad Bell’s statement that she is a leading lady to heart so she better be in that category.

Liz
Guest

Kassie DePaiva definitely deserves a nomination for her recent work. And Freddie Smith should submit his scenes in the hospital after the Will/Paul reveal. Christopher Sean’s depiction of Paul’s coming out to his family, over the phone no less, also deserves a nom. James Read was also excellent.

Darnell

Gh, this could be another good year for awards. Outstanding performances so far from Ana, Carly, Sonny, Liz, Nicolas, Sam, and Dante.

Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso deserve an Emmy win in the leading category. Even though Reckelll’s return was brief it was solid and gut wrenching as we watched his character die in his true love’s arms. Alfonso’s performance has been stellar!

Marybeth Evans, Kassie DePaiva & Peggy McKay all deserve nods and a win in the supporting category.

Team Days of our Lives !

Definitely Peter Reckell. He’s acting during he’s short return was unbelievable. So heartbreaking watching him in chains only to escape and die in Hope’s arms. Best acting I have seen in a long time. Also agree with Arianne Zucker she showed such incredible emotions during Daniel’s death.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
