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. It is far too easy to lose track of time. But it is beyond sweet for you to ask after all of us! You’re truly one in a million, Jimh! Thanks again for the shout-out and take care of yourself, dear friend! I do see a light at the end of this pandemic tunnel….

Good to hear from you…miss reading your comments…oh, me and an older sister are very stressed-difficult but we try to stay positive-however both our health has suffered when we already have medical issues and considered high risks-we both have been sick often and now its daily…none of us have the virus so far thank God and happy to hear you and others are doing well helps me feel somewhat better..take care!!!

@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 important duties as easily and safely as they can be done under these current circumstances. I truly do not understand those impudent individuals who selfishly refuse to socially distance, putting both their own well-being—and that of others—-in jeopardy simply to satisfy a desire to freely mix and mingle (especially when they are actually breaking the law in the process!) But enough of my frustrated musings…I’m glad that your sister and you are doing as well as can be expected given your high-risk conditions…May you both remain strong to keep fighting off this surreal scourge…I don’t know about you, but I really do not care for this particular “poorly-written” pandemic “scenario”…it’s been too prolonged, not to mention, thus far, there has been no satisfying soapy payoff…I’m past ready for a reasonably happy ending to this real-life nightmare! GH did a far better job with the Lassa Fever storyline…’Memba that one, Jimh??? Yeah…I’ll take it any day! Until then, stay safe and thanks again for thinking of me! (Now I’m off to find “CeeCee”…we last corresponded over Easter weekend…I’ll let her know you’re missing her and were kind enough to inquire after her!) Later!

Yes i remember Lassa Fever..im surprised GH doesnt air it on Fridays..yes, wish this pandemic was over…stress taking its toll on me healthwise…peace and stay safe too…CeeCee is the New Where’s Waldo-lol
