For the first time in two years, the Daytime Emmy Awards return for a live, in-person ceremony on Friday, June 24, airing on CBS and Paramount+. The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) will announce nominations on Thursday, May 5.
Per Variety, the 49th Daytime Emmy Awards will take place at Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California. You can watch the live show on CBS starting at 9 p.m. EST. If you have premium Paramount+, then you can also view the show live. All other Paramount subscriptions let you watch the event the following day.
NATAS also announced the dates for all of the other Emmy award shows, including the new Children’s & Family Emmy Awards. All children’s programming that would’ve been placed in the Daytime or Primetime Emmys will now belong to this new category, which will hold a ceremony in December.
Each Emmy show will also feature a Lifetime Achievement Award winner. The winners include John Aniston, Sir David Attenborough, LeVar Burton, Judy Woodruff, Lesley Visser, Yvette Kanouff, and the PBS show “The Old House.”
“We look forward to honoring this year’s unparalleled class of Lifetime Achievement honorees — each an icon in their craft — and couldn’t be more excited to award the first-ever Children’s & Family Emmys,” Adam Sharp, president & CEO of NATAS, said. “After two years of virtual ceremonies, we’re overjoyed to once again be together, in-person, to celebrate the best of television.”
Let’s dive into the Emmys schedule below.
