Daytime-Emmys-20010101

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS), today announced the Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for the 39th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Awards.

This year a new initiative was used to determine the Drama Performer Pre-nominees in response to changes requested in the pre-nomination voting process by the daytime drama performer community. A ballot containing a full list of entrants in each of the six performer categories was sent to registered, eligible peer judges. The ballot contained an unrevealed and randomized order of performers in each category, regardless of their show affiliation. Judges were required to view clips containing the work of each performer entry before selecting their top 10 performer choices in each category. The judges sent their ballots directly to Lutz & Carr, an independent accounting firm, who tabulated the results. The Lead Actor contains 11 pre-nominated performers due to a tie in this category. The candidates below who received the highest number of votes now advance to the blue ribbon at-home screening round, scheduled to begin on March 27th, 2012, which will determine both nominees and winners.
