The Daytime Emmy Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in daytime television programming since 1974. The awards are presented to individuals and programs broadcast between 2:00 AM and 6:00 PM, as well as certain categories of digital and syndicated programming of similar content. This year’s awards honor content from more than 2,700 submissions that originally premiered in calendar-year 2019, judged by a pool of 1,000 peer professionals from across the television industry.

This year’s Daytime Emmys is produced by NATAS and Associated Television International (ATI), which previously produced Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies on The CW in 2009 and on CBS in 2010 and 2011. Adam Sharp and Steve Ulrich are executive producers from NATAS, while David McKenzie is executive producer and Director from ATI.

I am wondering which major categories will be televised? I am hoping all 9 daytime drama categories make it in. I am so curious as to how this will be done! Will each of the nominees be at home, or will each show’s performers be all together somewhere? Or it would be a real hoot if all of the nominees in the acting categories were together somewhere, just the five or six of them – wearing masks or six feet apart? This is going to be really interesting!

With only 2 hours they are going to need to move right along – hoping no dumb segments, just get on with the awards! And I do hope we get to see short clips rather than just reading out the names in the daytime drama categories.

Impressed by her story notes, the late Bill Bell, then head writer of Y&R, had Meg doing double duty acting and writing on the show from 1983-1987. When he decided to write off the character of Julia, he also wanted Meg to stick around as a writer.  Not only did this begin a whole other daytime career for Bennett, but she was not done playing Julia either. Throughout the decades, Julia would still come back to Genoa City for a visit. Most recently, Y&R fans saw Julia in 2018, and again in 2020.
