The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) unveiled pre-nominations for the 44th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards Wednesday morning.  

According to NATAS, an online judging ballot containing all entrants in each of four performer categories (Lead Actor and Actress and Supporting Actor and Actress) was sent to all registered, eligible peer judges to kick off the pre-nomination process. 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.

Ballots were submitted directly to Lutz & Carr, Inc., 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 February 20, 2017, which will determine both nominees and recipients. Younger Actor and Actress categories  will proceed directly to the Blue Ribbon Round. Nominations will be announced on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, live on CBS Daytime's The Talk

Daytime's biggest night takes place Sunday, April 30, 2017 in Los Angeles. Check out the complete list of pre-nominees below!
