Daytime Emmy Awards impacted by coronavirus pandemic
The coronavirus pandemic forced several changes to the Daytime Emmy Awards. Initially, the event honoring the best in daytime was canceled.
However, it was revealed yesterday the academy does plan on having a ceremony, but it will look quite different than last year’s celebration. Plus, for the first time in five years, fans will witness who takes home the Daytime Emmy on television.
CBS plans to broadcast the ceremony, which is a treat for fans who have expressed their frustration with the show only streaming in the past.
