The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced the pre-nominations for the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on Thursday. 

Senior Vice President of the Daytime Emmy Awards and Executive Producer David Michaels said in a released statement: 

We are excited to officially launch the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with this list of extremely talented actors and actresses. Our 45th Anniversary show promises to be a star-studded gala filled with lots of surprises.

Per NATAS rules, the online judging ballot, which contained 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. The ballot featured a randomized order of performers in each category, regardless of their show affiliation. Judges had to view clips online containing the work of each performer entry before selecting their top 10 performer choices in each category.  

The final nominations will be announced on  March 21, 2017, live on The Talk. The award ceremony will take place April 29 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California. No word yet on a telecast.
