NATAS and Television Academy Realign Competitions Shifting to Genre Over Day-Part

Photo: NATAS

Significant changes were announced today in a move by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and the Television Academy that have jointly announced plans to realign the Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards.

Moving forward in 2022, the competitions will be organized solely by content genre as opposed to the current method, which separates programs based on program airtime  – night vs. day and morning.

For soap fans, the Daytime Drama Categories will remain in the Daytime Competition under NATAS, but will now be redefined to include: “any multi-camera, weekday daily serial, spin-off or reboot.”  That means that the Peacock Limited Series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem could compete in the Outstanding Drama Series against the four usual suspects of the network soaps (DAYS regular airshow, GH, Y&R, and B&B).

In addition, programming previously awarded in the Limited Drama categories of the Daytime competition will transition to the Primetime competition. Scripted dramas will likely enter the Primetime Emmys; which means shows that are streaming series such as The Bay or Studio City would vie in the nighttime awards.

Talk shows will be awarded in each competition, separated by format and style characteristics reflective of current programming in the daytime or late night space.

The Morning Show and Spanish-Language Morning Show categories will be retired from the Daytime competition, with such programming eligible instead in the NATAS-administered News & Documentary Emmys or the Daytime competition’s Talk Show categories, depending on show format.

Game Show and Instructional & DIY programming categories will remain divided by airtime for the 2022 competitions, while the Academies look to a genre-based alignment for the 2023 competition year.

All other categories will be clarified such that content creators will submit to a single competition on the basis of submission genre, irrespective of airtime.

Adam Sharp, the CEO of NATAS shared: “NATAS and the Television Academy each pride ourselves on celebrating and honoring the best television has to offer, and with the evolution of our industry, it was critical to update our competitions to meet current trends in both content and viewing habits. These changes will allow each Academy to honor an undivided scope of achievement in our respective fields of television excellence.”

So what do you think of the upcoming Emmy changes, and those in the field of Outstanding Daytime Drama and more? Comment below.

Can you imagine Ron Carlivati’s giving everyone the BIGGEST eff-u if he won Best Show Emmy for Beyond Salem? I’d die laughing! 😉

The Peacock limited series “Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem” could easily compete (and win!) against all four daytime soaps based on production values alone. Of course, from what I saw, it would be the frontrunner for nominations by GLAAD and perhaps even soft gay porn in adult entertainment awards… 🙂

Seems like they waste a lot of time deciding which parts of the “new media” shows fall under what part of the awards show. Why not just have ONE Emmy Awards show that includes all of the above, and…. problem solved.

If that takes up too much time, then drop awards for “reality shows” and other such useless dragonshit. The less legitimacy given to that garbage, the sooner we can get rid of it.

Are there any shows besides Beyond Salem that would be competing in the Daytime Drama categories? Personally I loved Chandler Massey, Zack Tinker, Greg Rikaart, Billy Flynn, Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna in Beyond Salem – am I understanding correctly that they would compete? Would it still be in Guest Performer as there were only five episodes? How about the Christmas movie airing tomorrow night? Still confused but this article helped clear it up a bit.

As long as they honor our departed soap stars, honor the soap genre and stars and have a bunch of soap opera stars co-host or present, I don’t care what they do. Those in the field are the ones to decide if they like it from a competition viewpoint. The fans will determine if they like by tuning in or not. Hope it all works out the the best.

The Bold and the Beautiful to Dedicate Episode to Betty White On What Would Have Been Her 100th Birthday

Television legend, Betty White, who passed away a few weeks ago at the age of 99, will have the upcoming Monday, January 17th of The Bold and the Beautiful dedicated to her.

What makes the choosing of this date to honor White s so meaningful is that it would have marked Betty’s 100th birthday.

Within her storied career, Betty played Ann Douglas on The Bold and the Beautiful – the mother to Pam and Stephanie.  She made her final appearances on B&B in 2009 when the show killed-off the character.

White, passed away a few weeks ago on New Year’s Eve, and earlier this week it came to light that she suffered a stroke six days before her death.

Pictured in this post are Alley Mills (Pam_, the late Lee Phillip Bell (Co-creator B&B and Y&R), Betty White and Susan Flannery (Ex-Stephanie).

So, what do you think of B&B honoring Betty on what would have been her 100th birthday by dedicating the episode to her? Comment below.
