On Thursday, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced the nominees for the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.
“Now more than ever, daytime television provides a source of comfort and continuity made possible by these nominees’ dedicated efforts and sense of community,” said President & CEO of NATAS Adam Sharp, according to Indiewire. “Their commitment to excellence and demonstrated love for their audience never cease to brighten our days, and we are delighted to join with CBS in celebrating their talents.”
The awards ceremony will be broadcast on Friday, June 26 at 8 p.m – 10 p.m., ET/PT on CBS. The format is different this year around, however.
The awards in leading categories will be announced during the broadcast while guests and winners join in virtually from home, during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The other additional categories will be announced on their official twitter handle and the other categories will have their own ceremony later in July.
