LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Daytime Emmys are back after being postponed by the Hollywood writers’ strike.
The 50th annual ceremony honoring talk shows and soap operas will air Dec. 15 live on CBS and stream live on Paramount + and will be hosted by “Entertainment Tonight’s” Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner.
It will be the first major awards show since the writers and actors went on strike. The Daytime Emmys, originally set for June 16, were postponed in May due to the Writers Guild of America strike. That ban ended on September 26. The actors’ union joined the writers’ strike on July 14 and ended their industrial action late Wednesday.
Soap actress Susan Lucci receives her lifetime achievement award at the ceremony at the Westin Bonaventure hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
“We know the loyal fans of daytime television have waited patiently to honor and recognize all of the deserving nominees, and we look forward to the celebration we’ve all been waiting for,” said Adam Sharp, president and CEO of National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
