The Daytime Emmys don’t only include soaps, but that fan base has been the one most vocal about not being able to see the show on television.
Now, they will get their chance to watch and see if their favorites are nominated, and who will take home the coveted prizes for their hard work on daytime TV.
Currently, there are four remaining soaps on the air. CBS has two of them, while ABC and NBC each have one. It has been almost a decade since soaps were parred down to what viewers have now.
Once the nominations are public, there will be a lot of talk about who won the nominations, who submitted Emmy reels, and who was snubbed.
Social media will be buzzing with opinions, and fans will weigh in on everything they can.
Having the Daytime Emmys return to television was a bold move. CBS decided to take a chance and figure out the logistics so that fans can enjoy an award ceremony they have missed for years.
With three of the four soaps going to reruns while production is suspended, this will be a treat!
