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 »

Oprah Winfrey Helps Ellen DeGeneres Process Ending Her Talk Show & Tells Her She is ‘Proud’ of Her for Following Her Instincts

Oprah Winfrey was the once reigning queen of the daytime talk show, and that mantled was then passed on to Ellen DeGeneres, although their shows were at times, very different.

With the announcement by DeGeneres that she is ending her talk show after its 19th season which will run from fall 2021-into spring 2022, who else should be her first guest but the mighty Oprah who knows a thing or two about ending an enduring talk show.   Winfrey appeared virtually and praised Ellen for knowing it was time to call it quits and reflected on the ending of the Oprah Winfrey Show back in 2011.

Oprah expressed: “It’s almost 10 years ago …will be next week.  10 years ago when I was in this exact position. I know what those feelings are. I also know the feelings leading up to it. So hearing you say, and announcing to the world that it was your instinct, and that you thought long and hard about it … because anybody would know that for something that is as powerful as the show is in other people’s lives, that you would not take that lightly. And that coming to the realization that, ‘Now it is time,’ is a process.”

Ellen shared that her decision was about wanting to have, and do, and fulfill other creative outlets for herself.  When Oprah asked Ellen how she was feeling since she made the announcement and uttered the words, ‘the show is ending after its 19th season.’ Ellen responded:  “I didn’t rehearse the monologue. I knew what I was going to say, but the words hadn’t come out of my mouth. So I was okay until I started talking and it became real. Obviously, I got emotional because it’s real now. But I’m feeling good.  I feel like it’s the right thing to do, but I’m charged. It’s a weird thing to announce that I’m stopping.”   Winfrey then said, “I’m proud of you for trusting your instinct because I know that there has to be — as there was in the case for me — a lot of people around you that want to keep that train moving, who want to keep going.”

Winfrey said it was important that Ellen gave her staffers a one-year heads up, since so many of the people who work on the show built their financial and emotional and professional lives around it – and by giving everyone a year, it helps those that have worked on the show time to process and to figure out their next chapter, as well.

You can watch the entire conversation below.

Then let us know, do you think Oprah offered up great words of wisdom to Ellen? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Ellen DeGeneres On Her Talk Show Exit Says Personal Attacks Following Toxic Workplace Backlash Were “Too Orchestrated … It Was Too Coordinated”

This morning on The Today Show, Savannah Guthrie’s sit-down interview with Ellen DeGeneres aired in what was her first TV interview since announcing on her talk show on Wednesday, that she was ending her show following its upcoming 19th season.

All of this comes on the heels of last summer’s nightmare of publicity for her and the show, when allegations emerged that Ellen and her staffers fostered a toxic workplace environment, which saw key executives ousted, and reports that Ellen was not nice, which had already been noted throughout Hollywood, previously.

In addressing whether the situation ultimately brought her clarity to end the series, DeGeneres told Guthrie, it wasn’t the reason, but when Guthrie asked if Ellen felt if she felt ‘canceled’ amidst society’s ‘cancel culture’, Ellen expressed:  “I really didn’t understand it, I still don’t understand it.  Yeah, I thought I thought something was going on like that, because it was too orchestrated, it was too coordinated. And, you know, people get picked on, but for four months straight for me, and then for me to read in the press about a toxic work environment, when, when all I’ve ever heard from every guest that comes on the show is what a happy atmosphere this is, and how, what a happy place it is.”

Ellen also informed Guthrie it was emotional for her to tell her staff the show would be coming to a close after next season: “I’m glad that before it leaked, I got to tell my staff and my crew, from my own words – that they didn’t hear it anyplace else. Because I haven’t been sleeping. I’ve been trying to anticipate how to tell them and, you know, hope that everybody would take it okay. A lot of people were very emotional. I got emotional.”

On today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres show look for Oprah Winfrey to be the special guest, which is sure to have the famous talk show hosts discussing Ellen’s exit from daytime.

Watch a portion of Ellen’s interview from this morning on the Today Show below.

What do you think of how Ellen is sharing that she feels the attacks we too orchestrated against her last summer? Do you agree, or not agree? Let us know in the comment section.

Ellen DeGeneres to End Her Talk Show After Its 19 Season

Ellen DeGeneres informed her staff yesterday that she has made the decision to end her talk show after its upcoming 19th season.  She will sit down with Oprah Winfrey on the May 13th episode of the The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her decision to step away.

In an exclusive interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Ellen shared: “When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore.”

The show’s end comes on the heels of all of the turmoil last summer when several former and current employees accused Ellen of fostering a toxic work environment.  As well, several key producers were let-go as a result.

 

When speaking with THR, DeGeneres said of last summer’s revelations and accusations against her: “It was four solid months. And you have to understand, in that time, someone got into our house and robbed us and I lost four animals — three cats and a dog died. It was a tsunami. When it started, with that stupid ‘someone couldn’t look me in the eye’ or whatever the first thing was, it’s like a crest of a wave. Like, ‘This isn’t going to be that big of a wave.’ And then it just keeps getting bigger and bigger until it was out of control. And I really, honestly, felt like, ‘I don’t deserve this. I don’t need this. I know who I am. I’m a good person.’  And I was sitting back going, ‘If I was someone watching this, I would think, ‘Well, there must be some truth to it because it’s not stopping.’ Of course they’re going to believe this because I’m not addressing it because I was told not to and you can imagine what that felt like. And it’s a lot to live up to. I started saying “be kind to one another” because I really believe people should be kind to one another and so it was easy clickbait to say, ‘Oh, the be kind lady isn’t so kind.’ … I am kind, I’m also a woman and I’m a boss.”

Earlier this morning, The Daily Mall UK reported that Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Brothers, were expected to make an announcement that she will end her talk show after the 2021-2022 season.  According to their sources, DeGeneres told her team she “has had enough and told her team that she’s done.”

It should be noted that the The Ellen DeGeneres Show has seen a steady decline in the ratings as well.  The ratings for total households from February 2020 to February 2021 were down 40% in New York City and Chicago; and in Los Angeles it lost 59%.

Ellen’s talk show has produced over 3,000 episodes.

So, what do you think of Ellen deciding to conclude her talk show? Comment below.
