Breaking news this afternoon from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences where On-Air On-Soaps has learned through an Academy spokesperson that the presentations of The Outstanding Younger Actor and Actress categories will now be reinstated and handed out as in previous years at the main presentation of the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on June 23rd at the Beverly Hilton Hotel!

As previously reported this morning, NATAS made headlines with their decision to drop the two acting categories from the main show and instead present them at the Creative Arts Emmys on June 17th!  Well, after much pushback from the industry and a review of an early draft of the categories scheduled for presentation, they are now putting the categories back to the main ceremonies.  Now, we are still awaiting confirmation as to if the Emmys will air on television, the internet, or not air anywhere at all.

In the meantime, this is great news for Younger Actor nominees; Chandler Massey, Eddie Alderson, Chad Duell and Nathan Parsons, and Younger Actress nominees, Christel Khalil, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, Molly Burnett and Shelley Hennig! These talented performers, in a year where their work was stellar, will now be celebrated and recognized with their acting peers on the biggest night in daytime.    Thank God!

That’s good, To bad they didn’t come to this sight and read all the comments about ignoring one life to live from the best drama series and best writing. Maybe we should go to there web sight and start complaining.

Totally agree….OLTL was by far the best soap, and should have received the Emmy, hands down….And to be honest, I’m not happy with the total low number of nominations for the cast….I have a long list that was left out: Florencia, Roger, Trevor, Kassie, Kristen, Bree, Melissa, John Paul, Farah, Austin, Mark Lawson, Kim Zimmer, and the list just goes on and on……The nomination list should have been full of OLTL’ers… Not to mention, how and the hell did OLTL not get nominated for Outstanding Writing in A Daytime Drama? The Emmy’s are a joke.

The sad part about it was that one life to live was ignored for so many years and even in the last year of it’s life it was ignored, and I am beginning to sound like a broken record but one life to live deserves to be on the best drama series and best writing category. and all the names you mentioned getting ignored just blows my mind. I am being accused of being a ONE LIFE TO LIVE FANATIC, but I don’t care I love that soap and I believe it was once again ripped off at the emmys,… Read more »

You are so right. OLTL was robbed and so were the fans of the show. I am a die hard OLTL fanatic, so don’t worry, I know how you feel and what you mean. I am still trying to keep hope alive that OLTL will somehow make its way back to the small screen. Because, to me, it’s just the BEST. I am scratching my head and wondering how in the hell AMC got a nomination for Outstanding Drama, and OLTL didn’t. I know this may piss some people off, but I’m gonna say it anyway….. It has always bothered… Read more »

At least they got their heads on straight and kept the categories where they belong.

Let’s hope they will air the Daytime Emmy Awards on TV or online so the fans can watch.

What a no brainer. Of course Younger Actor and Actress categories should be presented. These people play significant characters with significant air time. Just because they are younger was no reason to exclude them. Everybody wants to see who will win in these categories after so many exceptional performances.

I think it would have been wrong on so many levels, not to have the young actress actor category in the same league of the others main presentations. These young talented artists work their butt off, long hours for us to be entertained, they earned that recognition like the others, they deserve to be acknowledged for their efforts, skills and and beauty…So really THANK GOD that somebody at the Academy got that straight..
Good luck to you JACQUELINE MACINNESS WOOD, you are my favorite to win.

I’m disappointed.

I really hope that CD or EA wins the younger actor award. NP should be discriminated against just like his former co-star was. He doesn’t LOOK like he should be in the Younger Actor Category so he shouldn’t be included in it.

It’s all about how you look and not your real age.

A month before its 5th season is set to bow, Queen Sugar has been renewed for its sixth season by OWN as it was announced on Thursday.  The first of its 10 episode season will drop on February 16th.

After having to shut down production due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it gave DuVernay time to retool the series remaining season episode and to incorporate the pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter protests of last summer and the general election. Production on Season 5 of the series did not begin until September of last year and ran till December 2020.

In a statement, Oprah Winfrey shared: “The way Ava creates space to allow these characters to embody real-world experiences is television at its finest and we are proud to continue this ground-breaking series. I hear from so many people that they see themselves in the Bordelon family, and my hope is that through this kind of storytelling the hearts and minds of people are opened for a deeper understanding and empathy of one another.”
