Photo: NATAS

And so it begins, the race is on for Daytime Emmy Gold with the announcement this morning from The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) of the Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for the upcoming 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

The process used to determine the Pre-Nominated performers follows:

An online judging ballot containing all entrants in nine performer categories was sent to all registered, eligible peer judges. The ballot contained a randomized order of performers in each category, regardless of their show affiliation. Judges were required to view clips online containing the work of each performer entry before selecting their top 10 performer choices in each category. The once exception is that there are 11 Supporting Actresses in a Digital Drama due to exact ties in the voting. As well, the names of the actors proceeding directly to the Blue Ribbon round of voting in the Younger Actor and Actress, and Guest Performer categories in a Drama Series are contained below as well.

Ballots were submitted directly to Lutz & Carr, Inc., an independent accounting firm, who tabulated the results. The candidates below who received the highest number of votes now advance to the blue ribbon screening round, scheduled to begin on February 21, 2019, which will determine both nominees and recipients.  

Final nominations will be announced on Wednesday, March 20, 2019.

“We are very proud to officially launch the 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with this list of extremely talented actors and actresses” said Brent Stanton, Executive Director, Daytime Emmy Awards Administration. “We are also very excited that this year the pre-nomination round includes the very talented performers from the Digital Drama Series.”

“Following the success of last year’s show, we look forward to the 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards being even bigger and better,” said David Michaels, Senior Vice President, and Executive Producer, Daytime Emmy Awards. “Today’s list of talent bodes well for a spirited competition and a star-studded show”

Congrats to all for their Pre-noms, now check out who made the cut below!

Did Camila Banus (Gabi. DOOL) just not submit anything this year? Because that’s the ONLY reason why I can think of for not to be on the Best Supporting Actress list.

If Peter makes it to the final round(s), I will lose all faith in the system. There are so many well-deserving actors on this list. Those that have actually earned their jobs.

I don’t watch GH but I keep reading comments like yours on different media sites. He wasn’t bad when he was a young man on Guiding Light but that was about a decade ago. I might have to watch clips of him on GH just to be curious lol.

I have to admit I’m confuse on how the voting procedure goes, but still happy the GH ladies and guys that made the list, happy that Michele Stafford is finally popping up for her work on gh, and glad to see Tamara Braun in the list for supporting, especially since they started her character out slow, and now she’s in hight gear onscreen.

No snub at all if she did not submit a reel. There are no nominations for these awards other than the actor nominating themself.

Glad to see Lindstrom in the lead category, as he has been driving story for months now. As mad as I was that Genie “went on hiatus”, that was probably the best thing to happen to JL on the show since they paired the 2 together.

Gail is rightfully in the supporting category. Howarth should have got Ramsey’s slot, but I suspect he submitted in lead.

Great list of actors. I think the one glaring omission is Rob Scott Wilson (Ben, DOOL). He has done the impossible, making us cheer for a killer. I also think Camilla Banus should not only have been pre-nominated, but should have won. Kate Mansi is a lock for her award. I am surprised to not see Greg Vaughn on the list. I am hoping to see the awards on Hallmark or Lifetime channel this year since they continue to employ so many daytime actors. Lastly, I would love to see Michael Fairman and Lauren Koslow do the red carpet.

Just give the Best Supporting Actor Emmy to Max Gail right now. No disrespect to any of the other names on the list in that category, but it shouldn’t even be a competition. Max has been on another level. And to think, that role was originally planned to only las6 3 months. The other names that stand out for me, very glad to see Jon Lindstrom’s name after all these years. I don’t recall him ever being nominated or pre-nominated in the past. Hope he makes the final cut. The story has dragged on too much for my liking, but… Read more »

^^^ it just sounds and reads a lot of intelligence. ACTORS who craft their chosen profession … take the time and/or have that IT quotient to RUN with any thing. across the board fascinate AND mesmerize. on that note –

it’s Billy Flynn, Chad @DAYS
it’s Drake Hogestyn, John @DAYS

who should be in the top 5 and easily take home emmy

Daytime Emmys Land Two-Year Deal At CBS; NATAS Reveals This Year’s Broadcast Set For June 25th

Some great news for daytime fans!  Following a deal announced today between National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and CBS, the network now has a two-year deal to broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards.

CBS will present this year’s 48th Annual Daytime Emm Awards, on Friday, June 25 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network and it will stream live and on demand on Paramount+.   This will mark the 15th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards, more than any other network.

In addition, this is the first time since 2008 that one network will broadcast both the Daytime and Primetime Emmy awards in the same year. CBS last hosted both specials in 2005.

 

The Daytime Emmy Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in daytime television programming since 1974.  The awards are presented to programs broadcast between 2:00 AM and 6:00PM, as well as all forms of children’s television programming and certain categories of streaming and syndicated content.

NATAS also revealed today that this year’s Daytime Emmys are the most competitive ever, with more than 3,100 submissions featuring content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

The 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be produced by NATAS and Associated Television International (ATI), which produced Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies on The CW in 2009 and on CBS in 2010, 2011 and 2020. Adam Sharp and Steve Ulrich are executive producers from NATAS, while David McKenzie is executive producer and director from ATI.

So excited about the Daytime Emmys will return to network TV for two more years guaranteed, and that we have a date for this year’s presentation this summer? Comment below.
