47th Daytime Emmy Awards To Be Presented Via “Virtual” Ceremony This Fall

The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced today their plans and roll-out for their postponed award ceremonies for Daytime, Sports and News & Documentary television, and achievement in television Technology & Engineering.

In the updated announcement today, the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards  originally slate for June will now be presented via a “virtual” ceremony in the fall.  That ceremony will be available on all leading “Smart TV” platforms via the Academy’s forthcoming apps, as well as through other distribution partners.

The Academy had previously determined that the Daytime Emmy Awards would proceed without in-person ceremonies but had continued to plan for Sports, News & Documentary, and Technology & Engineering events. Recent comments and proposed economic reopening timetables released by federal, state, and local officials in New York and Los Angeles indicate events of more than 1,000 attendees in close proximity will remain restricted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“While it appears unlikely that officials would even permit these large-crowd events to be held this year, it is also clear that there will be a lag of time between being permitted to have an event and being able to provide an environment in which all attendees feel safe and comfortable attending it,” said NATAS President & CEO Adam Sharp. “Ultimately, a single person-to-person transmission resulting in serious infection would be devastating evidence of mistaken judgment in proceeding.”

Awards in National Academy-administered Emmy competitions will be presented instead in a series of productions later this year, leveraging multiple remote video production technologies to involve nominees and presenters. Program dates and times will be determined following upcoming nomination announcements for the Daytime Emmy® in May and the News & Documentary Emmy this summer.

Today’s decision does not impact ceremonies produced by NATAS’ 19 regional chapters — the majority of which have already committed to “virtual” events — nor those produced by NATAS’ sister academies: The Television Academy (Primetime Emmy® Awards) and the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The International Emmy® Awards for News & Current Affairs will continue to be presented as part of the NATAS News & Documentary program, however.

So, what are your thoughts on a virtual Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony this fall? Comment below.

Well, if it’s not one thing it’s another. We’re used to not having the daytime shows (especially our soaps) get their due. I will support them and honor them however I can. Hopefully, I’ll be able to see the “virtual” event whenever it happens this year.

Thank you for your thoughtful note of concern, Jimh! Everything is fine on my end, and I hope the same for you, as well as all those other wonderful posters you have so graciously mentioned! I do try to check in now and then…I recently enjoyed some great conversations with James and Reed on an older thread, but it’s difficult to keep up with everyone…and let’s face it, the days seem to meld one into another.

@Jimh…I totally believe in positive thinking, but then again, I’ve always been an eternal optimist, albeit one who is presently and religiously staying put, only venturing away from home for the very rare essential trips clad in my mask and gloves! (Hey, cannot be too careful…LOL!) Although fortunately none of us has any pre-existing health issues, I prefer to err on the side of caution and not tempt fate, plus, as far as I’m concerned, it is just a matter of personal courtesy to adhere to lockdown protocol to assist those who MUST be out and about to perform their… Read more »

Michael Tylo, well-remembered for his roles on daytime soap operas, has died at the age of 73.  Tylo, was most-loved in his role as Quinton Chamberlain, in the Quint and Nola (Lisa Brown) romance on Guiding Light, as well for his time on The Bold and the Beautiful (Ex-Sherman), All My Children (Ex-Matt), The Young and the Restless (Ex-Rick/Blade), Another World (Ex-Lord Peter Belton), and General Hospital (Ex-Charlie).

Tylo’s death was announced by Nancy Uscher, Dean of College of Fine Arts at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where Michael was a film professor.  Michael died on Tuesday at Henderson Hospital in Henderson, Nevada, following an illness.

In a statement on the UNLV website, Uscher said of her colleague: “Michael Tylo was a beautiful and caring human being — he was so special.  He was an exemplary friend, colleague, teacher, and artist. He had such a distinguished and rich career, but he was humble about his accomplishments. He loved his family dearly and lived a joyous life, but he left us way too soon. We will miss him greatly, but feel deep gratitude about all that Michael contributed to the College of Fine Arts, UNLV, and the world.”

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.
