Nominations for this year’s Daytime Emmy’s were to be announced today, Friday May 4, 2012, but have been delayed until Wednesday, May 9,2012, to allow a broadcast deal to be finalized.
The past 2 years, CBS has picked up the television coverage of the glittering Daytime Emmy’s event, but this year it looks like the even is headed to cable with rumors of HLN picking up the television coverage rights to the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awwards.
With the soap opera genre shifting from network television to Internet television, it should come as no surprise that the media deal also includes broadcast of the event on the Internet – via AOL’s AOL On Network.
Another departure from the previous 2 years is that the even is to be held at the Los Angeles Beverly Hilton (on June 23, 2012). The Emmy’s were held in sin city, Las Vegas over the last couple of years at the Las Vegas Hilton.
Return on Wednesday, 9 May, 2012,for a list of nominees and to see what nominations Days of Ou Lives garners.
One shoe in for an Emmy’s nod has to be Chandler Massey for his portrayal of sexually confused Will Horton. Tune in on Saturday June 12, 2012 (network to be advised)to see if Days of our Lives picks up a statur or two.
