48th Annual Daytime Emmy Nominations to be on Unveiled Tuesday


Daytime fans mark your calendars for this Tuesday, May 25th.  That is the date that you will find out if your favorites made it through the voting process and will be vying for gold in the upcoming 48th annual Daytime Emmys that will be held once again virtually on June 25th on CBS and streaming live and on-demand on Paramount +.

Ahead of nominations day, Adam Sharp the CEO of NATAS (National Television of Arts and Sciences), spoke to to provide some clarification on the voting process that ultimately choose the nominees in categories.

According to the article, “Daytime nominees are selected by panels that range in size from 10 to 50 or more industry veterans.”  The difference between the Primetime Emmys and the Daytime Emmys is that panel members are required to watch every submission in their category, while in the Primetime Emmys, members of ATAS, select nominees without having to review their work.

Sharp shares: “(Panelists) don’t rank. They score each entry on its individual merit. We think that, combined with the general anonymity of these panels, is why you don’t see public campaigning. Some have criticized it. There are those who advocate for a wide community vote. But we think a jury of peers delivers a result that really helps elevate those voices.”

Now, of note for those fans who may be wondering, there is not a second round of voting.  So, when the nominations are revealed next week, the accountants already know the winners which will be revealed on the CBS broadcast next month.

In addition, Sharp said of changes made to the process and who ultimately scores a nomination in their respective categories: “We’ve established standards that generate fewer ties, fewer irregularities, more consistent data. We’ve established standards for a minimum viability for a nomination. Under our old system, if you were one of the top five scorers, you were nominated even if you had a really low score. Under the new model, you won’t be nominated if you have a low score. So, you will see that some of the categories will have fewer nominees than before.”

So, how will this all play out? Will your favorites make the cut? Who are you rooting for to score a nomination after their hard work in the 2020 season? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Cait Fairbanks (Tessa y&r) ❤️

Completely worthless. You cannot compare one actor to another unless they’re playing the same scene and you are scoring on tangible things. All of the awards shows are nothing but one big popularity contest. A complete soul suck, an ego wallow and a waste of time and money. Did anybody learn this year through the Oscars rock bottom ratings that nobody cares about them anymore?

“Nobody cares about them anymore”? You can only speak for yourself here. I did not give you permission to speak for me.

I am rooting for Y&R.

I’m be watching the show and I am going to root for General Hospital and the young and the restless is a favorite

I’m hoping that Adam Newman and Sharon will win

I agree that Sharon should win but I’m not sure about Adam winning.

Sharon was sadly not nominated ): She better be nominated for the work she has done in 2021! I don’t know why they don’t nominate her year after year… (the nominees are Melissa Clare Egan, Genie Francis, Nancy Lee Grahn, Finola Hughes, and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood)

Days of Our Lives for a sweep!

Here’s my one thought. Matthew Atkinson (Thomas; B&B) should be among the nominee’s. If not, he’ll have been robbed. He killed it in that mannequin storyline late last year.

As for Drama Series, I think GH is going to win based on what I’ve read and the little I’ve seen. Mike’s death from Alzheimers and the bombing of the Floating Rib should also help. As for B&B and Y&R, they’ll get some of the technical awards and maybe some acting nods but for drama series, neither deserve it.

From Y&R, I’m rooting for Sharon Case and Mark Grossman. On GH, probably Maura West and Genie Francis as lead, with Willow and Sasha as younger or supporting actresses. Other than Cyrus, I can’t think of any men who impressed me this year. On BB, Matthew Atkinson would seem like a lock, but you never know.

They have already announced the Best Lead Actress nominees: Melissa Claire Egan, Y&R; Genie Francis, Nancy Lee Grahn and Finola Hughes, GH; and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, B&B – not sure why they revealed that one category the day before but it’s on the Entertainment Tonight website, which is what I was told by a NATAS representative was going to be the main source for the announcements. I am really happy with the GH nominees – I do wish Maura West was on there though, and Sharon Case keeps on getting snubbed year after year. But all and all those 5 nominees are very strong! Torn between Genie and Nancy, they both deserve to win!
