The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences today announced the call for entries for the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards. Interested entrants and judges should note the following deadlines: Early Entry – December 18, 2019 and Final Deadline – January 15, 2020
The 47th Daytime Emmy® Awards will take place at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, CA in three separate shows on Friday, June 12th, Saturday, June 13th and Sunday, June 14th.
Additionally, what were formerly separate Younger Actor and Younger Actress in a Drama Series categories, respectively, have been combined into a singular non-gendered Younger Performer in a Drama Series. This new category, along with the previously existing non-gendered children’s and animation performer categories, gives Daytime the opportunity to assess over time the effects of both methodologies with regards to gender in the awards show space. NATAS is continuing to seek guidance from LGBTQ community leaders, including GLAAD, regarding the new policy and language.
The Daytime Emmys is introducing three brand new categories: Outstanding Young Adult Program, Outstanding Picture Editing for an Animated Program, and Outstanding Special Effects Costumes, Makeup and Hairstyling.
A complete list of these and all changes in the 47th Daytime Emmy Awards is included in a separate PDF for convenience.
