Tonight on Sunday July 19th, seven categories will be presented during the livestream of the Digital Drama Daytime Emmy Awards as presented by NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) while the nominations for the genre were released back on May 21st, Michael Fairman TV offers up this short refresher course and look at the categories on tap for this evening.

The Digital Drama Daytime Emmys will begin at 9 p.m EST/6 p.m, PST and are live, and hosted by former Queer Eye for the Straight Guy star, Jai Rodriguez. You can watch the awards via several platforms including heading over to Emmys.TV, the new The Emmys app available for download, or you can watch via watch.theEmmys.TV

Unlike the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards which was pre-recorded on June 28th, (although the winners were revealed that night for the first time), tonight’s Digital Drama Daytime Emmys are live.  In a statement to Variety, NATAS President and CEO shared: “The nominees are all going to be connected live, and all live from their homes or wherever they’re isolating, and our accountants are sending the sealed envelopes directly to the homes of our live presenters. So, it certainly adds a little bit more to the heart palpitations,  Being a streaming show there’s certainly a little bit more forgiveness than if you go to dead air on primetime CBS.”

Of the nominated Digital Dramas both Studio City and EastSiders tied with the most nods with eight.  The award for Outstanding Digital Drama Series was previously given out on the CBS ceremony and that went to The Bay as well as any behind the scenes awards they have been nominated for, with the exception of Writer and Director categories which will be given out Sunday.

Tonight, many notables from the world of daytime soaps are competing in the major acting categories including: Mary Beth Evans, Jade Harlow, Tristan Rogers, Sean Kanan, Patrika Darbo, Carolyn Hennesy, Scott Turner Schofield and more.

Take a look at the nomination in the seven categories for tonight below.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.
