This will mark the 14th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmy(R) Awards, more than any other network.
During the broadcast, awards will be presented in leading categories, with recipients and other special guests appearing from home in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Additional categories will be announced simultaneously on Twitter (@DaytimeEmmys), with others presented in a separate ceremony in July.
Nominations for the Daytime Emmy(R) Awards in the competition’s 100 categories will be announced tomorrow, May 21, on CBS’ Daytime Emmy(R) Award-winning show THE TALK (2:00-3:00 PM, ET/1:00-2:00 PM, CT/PT), followed by ETonline.com.
CBS has been the #1-rated network in daytime television since 1986. Currently, the Network broadcasts the top-two game shows, THE PRICE IS RIGHT (#1 network show in daytime) and Let’s Make A Deal, the top-two daytime dramas, The Young and The Restless (top daytime drama for 31 years) and The Bold and the Beautiful, and the Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show THE TALK.
“As a leader in daytime, we are thrilled to welcome back the Daytime Emmy Awards,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events. “Daytime television has been keeping viewers engaged and entertained for many years, so it is with great pride that we look forward to celebrating the best of the genre here on CBS.”
“The Daytime Emmys are coming home,” said Adam Sharp, President & CEO of NATAS. “For generations, daytime television has been a source of comfort and continuity that’s never been more important. We’re delighted to join with CBS in celebrating the programs and professionals who never cease to brighten our days.”
“In these challenging times, daytime has been a primary influence in staying connected with its audience, entertaining them and keeping them informed,” said 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards executive producer and director David McKenzie of Associated Television International.
“We are honoured to be a part of it. We are also excited for the challenge of introducing a new format that will celebrate the contributions of daytime television.”
The Daytime Emmy(R) Awards have recognised 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 honour 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.
The 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards is produced by NATAS and Associated Television International (ATI), which previously produced Daytime Emmy(R) 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.
