They are certainly dignified people to have as the hosts, but I still would have preferred actors from our soaps. I hope they make up for this by having a ton of soap actors as presenters and not “celebrities” from outside the soap medium….And I don’t wish to disenfranchise the people from other daytime shows, since this IS the Daytime Emmys, but I only watch for the soap stars. JMHO.

This item isn’t about the Daytime Emmy show that will televised– this item is about a separate show for people behind the scenes, like lighting, make up, set decoration, camera operations, etc. I don’t think they have announced the hosts for the televised show for acting, best show etc. I am sure that show will have soap stars are presenters etc, as well as other daytime personalities.

Gotcha. My eye sight isn’t so good and I completely missed the words “creative arts”. That’s for pointing that out Mary SF.

Interesting. Now, all we have to wonder about is whether or not they’ll name a daytime drama star(s) as the host of the Emmy Awards in April.

I love Erika Slezak too Jim, I agree Erika and Bob Woods should host the emmys. I want Erika back in daytime. Cast Erika on The Bold and The beautiful as Erics new girlfriend, that would work for me.

I want Bruce Jenner to host the emmys. LOL. That would create drama, and have Kathy Griffin make fun of The Kardashians. I loved Kathy Griffin hosting the emmys last year. She was hilarious.
