PASADENA, Calif. – After two years of real drama and loneliness over the coronavirus pandemic, daily television stars and movies meet in person to present Daytime Emmys trophies.
Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner of “Entertainment Tonight” are hosting the awards who will return with the full capacity of the live ceremony at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. The 2020 release first appeared in the COVID-19 virtual tank. Last year’s show was pre-recorded with a limited audience at hand. The 49th annual awards ceremony will air on Friday at 9 p.m. ET on CBS and streaming on Paramount +.
Among the presenters were Drew Barrymore, Deidre Hall, Tamron Hall and Cameron Mathison. Michael Bolton will sing his new song “Beautiful World” and perform during In Memoriam.
For the first time, soap and its spin-off will clash in the category of daily drama. NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” is against the Peacock stream “Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem.” He also competes with “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless”, both on CBS, and “General Hospital” on ABC.
“The Young and the Restless” went to the show with 18 best nominations, including six in the Best Actor categories. The “general hospital” has 17 nodes. These are two of the four remaining soaps that are still broadcast on broadcast networks.
Pat Sajak competed against each other and three others in the host show category. He was nominated for his long-term performance in the syndicated “Wheel of Fortune” and also for his famous ABC broadcast. With Ellen DeGeneres recently retiring from her talk show, Kelly Clarkson is ready to replace her cloak next to DeGeneres’ old castle. The singer managed to win the third consecutive trophy of a moderator of an entertaining talk show, and her syndicated show competed for the second award in a row.
John Aniston, Jennifer’s father, was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his 37-year role as Victor Kiriakis in “Days of Our Lives.”
Last week’s Creative Arts and Lifestyle ceremony crowned some famous names.
Patti Scialfa, Bruce Springsteen’s wife, has her own trophy that she can add to the family record. He was the executive producer of PBS’s “Shelter Me: Soul Awakened”, which won for a special overtime.
John Legend, already the winner of EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony), added Daytime Emmy as executive producer of PBS “The Black Church”, which he won for a short daily program.
DeGeneres’ show of the same name won for the author team for a one-day series of non-fiction and earned the cabaret artist the last Daytime Emmy in his award-winning 19-year run.
