Could Changes be Coming to Daytime Emmy Categories?

Publish date:

According toVariety, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) may consider having fewer nominees in each category, with another possibility being eliminating the younger actor categories. The Young and the Restless’Peter Bergman weighed in on the number of nominees, per category.

"They do need to change," says Peter Bergman, a three-time Daytime Emmy lead actor winner for his role on "The Young and the Restless" as Jack Abbott. "You can't have five (nominees) with only six shows. If you do, you may as well throw one from every show in."

Reportedly, another option on the table is the return of the guest performer category.
