Digital Drama Daytime Emmy Winners: Jade Harlow, Kristos Andrews & Tristan Rogers Take Top Acting Honors

The digital drama The Bay continued its hot streak that it started at the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards on CBS, when it won Outstanding Digital Drama Series, and tonight on the livestream of the virtual Digital Drama Daytime Emmys it racked up 3 more key wins for its leading actors and directors.

NATAS broadcast for the first time virtually on Sunday night, via their new streaming platforms powered by VIMEO, on their website, or their new app where viewers could watch the hour long ceremony hosted by Jai Rodriguez.  With the event being live, nominated actors, directors and writers who were around the country were all part of the live shots when their categories and names were called.

In the Outstanding Lead Actress and Lead Actor categories, The Bay’s Jade Harlow took home the gold for her performance as Lianna, while Kristos Andrews not only won Lead Actor, but co-director, when the The Bay won Directing honors for him and Gregori J. Martin.  Andrews now has four Emmy wins in the acting categories and five as a producer; and he now becomes the youngest person to be so decorated with that many Daytime Emmys in the history of the awards.  In addition, this is the second win for Harlow, having previously picked up the gold statuette in 2018 for her work in The Bay, but in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Digital Drama Series category.

In the Supporting Actor in a Digital Drama Series category that honor went to longtime GH fan favorite Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio), who after five decades in this business finally won an Emmy, but it was his performance as Doc in the digital dramaa Studio City that did the trick!

EastSiders, Lin Shaye who delivered a wonderful performance was voted the Outstanding Guest Performer in a Digital Drama Series, while After Forever, made it two years in a row for writers Michael Slade and series star Kevin Spirtas who took the same award last year.

Amazon Prime Video took home the most wins for where the series ran with 5 comprised of victories for: The Bay, After Forever and Studio City,

Seven categories in all were presented and here below is the Winners Role Call.  Congratulations to all!

And The Nominees Are … Who’s in the Running For Sunday’s Digital Drama Daytime Emmys

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.
