NATAS Reveals 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Pre-Noms!




The pre-nominations for the drama series acting categories for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards have been announced! The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS) unveiled the list this morning.

Here's how the pre-noms were determined, according to NATAS:

"An online judging ballot containing all entrants in each of six performer categories was sent to registered, eligible peer judges. The ballot contained a randomized order of performers in each category, regardless of their show affiliation. Judges were required to view clips online containing the work of each performer entry before selecting their top 10 performer choices in each category. Please note that the Outstanding Lead Actress category contains 12 prenominated performers and the Supporting Actor category contains 13 prenominated performers due to ties. Ballots were submitted directly to Lutz Carr, an independent accounting firm, who tabulated the results. The candidates below who received the highest number of votes now advance to the blue ribbon screening round, scheduled to begin on March 26, 2014, which will determine both nominees and recipients. All nominations will be announced May 1st."
