The 2015 Daytime Emmys Awards have gotten a date! The annual ceremonies will be held a few months earlier than in 2014, with the date next year being Sunday night, April 26th!
NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) also has a few other important calendar dates to note: The deadline for performer pre-nomination clips must be submitted by Friday, November 28, 2014. The Pre-Nominations will be announced on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, while the blue-ribbon panel judging will be begin on Tuesday, February 24, 2015, with the final nominations announced on Thursday, March 26th, 2015.
Additionally, some new categories have been added which include: Guest Performers in a Daytime Drama Series, which could potentially mean nomination for the likes of General Hospital’s Donna Mills (Madeline), and The Young and the Restless Ray Wise (Ian). And as occurred two years ago, the Younger Actor and Actress in a Drama Series category contenders will proceed immediately to the blue-ribbon round of judging.
There is no word yet on where and how the annual Daytime Emmy festivities will be held and whether a TV deal has been finalized, but POP formerly TVGN has been bantered about as one main possibly for awhile as where the show could land, if it can return to a cable or broadcast network, after last year’s online streaming version.
