Daytime Emmys Will Go Virtual As NATAS Cancels In-Person Ceremonies

Daytime Emmy Awards Winners Announced

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) has announced that the Daytime Emmy Awards, as well as Sports, and News & Documentary, will be conducted remotely through video for the 2019-2020 awards cycle. The Daytime Emmy Awards will take place remotely in Fall 2020.

Originally Sports, News & Documentary, and Technology & Engineering were planned to continue but with stay-at-home rules still in place, they will be conducted remotely.

“While it appears unlikely that officials would even permit these large-crowd events to be held this year, it is also clear that there will be a lag of time between being permitted to have an event and being able to provide an environment in which all attendees feel safe and comfortable attending it,” said NATAS President & CEO Adam Sharp. “Ultimately, a single person-to-person transmission resulting in serious infection would be devastating evidence of mistaken judgment in proceeding.”

The ceremonies will take place over a series of productions later this year. Nominees and presenters will be involved through remote video.
