CONFIRMED: Daytime Emmy Award Nomination Rule Changes!

This is via http://michaelfairmansoaps.com

National Academy of Arts and Sciences spokesperson confirmed to Nelson Branco’s Soap Opera Uncensored, a major overhaul of the beleaguered Daytime Emmy award nomination process. Most of the changes have been approved and are ready to be implemented while some will be integrated over the course of the next two years.

Here is a rundown of the new rules. Thank God. Some change! Because, this was getting ridiculous. Now the question, will this work and even the playing field? Or, somehow back-fire? Emmy voting changes …

There is no limit to how many actors from one show can submit their name for Emmy consideration in the pre-nomination round in a category. For example, 10 actresses from General Hospital can submit themselves for Lead Actress contention.

Pre-nominee hopefuls will submit an edited two-minute reel consisting of one scene from one episode reflecting their best work from the calendar year.

Judging pre-nominees hopefuls will be conducted online only on a NATAS website over 4 weeks instead of 2. Members of the Academy will choose their top 10 choices from 1 (being the best) to 10 — regardless of what show they are employed on. The ballot will not include names or pictures of the hopeful candidates. Anonymous live links to their work will only be shown. In other words, voters will have to click on each link to find out who they are voting for — and most importantly, view the candidate’s work. Translation: Blind voting for members’ friends or well-known names is seemingly over. READ MORE
