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 »

Courtney Hope Exits The Bold and the Beautiful Shares: “This Chapter of Sally Has Sadly Come to an End”

Since The Bold and the Beautiful returned to CBS Daytime with all-new episodes, it has provided viewers scenes that included of the finest work of Courtney Hope’s (Sally) career on the soap,  and now its time again for her character to depart the canvas one more time,

In story, Sally’s lies caught up with her in her obsession to nab Wyatt (Darin Brooks) as her man at the expense of his current lady love, Flo (Katrina Bowden).  And in key scenes on today’s B&B, Wyatt tells Sally it’s best for to stay away from him and Flo and to, perhaps, leave town.

Courtney took to her Instagram account to share her thoughts on the news of her exit, saying: “An abrupt ending to a monumental journey. The last three years have been amazing, and though I do not know what the future holds this chapter of Sally has sadly come to an end.  I love my @boldandbeautifulcbs cast and crew and will miss everyone dearly, but await the day we may all play again. Some things are out of our control, and I thank the fans for your support through it all!  Until then, I revel in new beginnings and everything the future has in store. 🙌🏼✨Love you all,  Sally spectra out 👩🏼‍🦰 ✌🏽”

So, what have you thought of Courtney’s recent performances?  Do you think B&B wrote the character into a corner they could not get out of? Would you like to see her return again one day? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.   But first, watch Wyatt say goodbye to Sally.

Dominic Zamprogna On His Return To General Hospital: “So Great To Be Back With My Family!!”

The big surprise on Monday’s General Hospital in its first episode back amid the coronavirus pandemic, featured in it none other than Dominic Zamprogna and his return to the show as Dante Falconeri.

In it, viewers see Dante still struggling from his PTSD while at a WSB facility in Geneva, Switzerland at the top of the episode.

We later see Dante writing a letter to his mother, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), that he just saves and tucks at the end of his bed, never meaning he as he says to send it, in order to keep his family and loved ones safe from him.

Zamprogna was last seen on GH back in March of 2019.  Dominic originated the role of Dante back in 2009 and had stayed with the series for 9 years before deciding to previously exit the show.  Over the last several months, Dominic has been public about wanting the opportunity to work with his GH co-stars again and how he missed them,

After today’s episode of GH aired, the series Twitter account, tweeted: “Welcome Home” to which the actor expressed: “Thank you!! So great to be back with my family!!”

This sets the stage for Dante to get well, head back to Port Charles, only to find the love of his life Lulu (Emme Rylan), involved with another man, Dustin (Mark Lawson), or who knows what else may be on the horizon.

So, what do you think will happen next for Dante? Glad Dominic is back on GH? Comment below.
