As previously reported, the nominations for the 2016 Daytime Emmy Awards were announced live on CBS’ The Talk at 2:00 pm today. Following the broadcast, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) today announced the full list of nominees. The awards ceremony will be held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites on Sunday, May 1st.

The Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards will also be held at the Bonaventure on Friday, April 29th, 2016. The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Award Nominations were revealed today on the Emmy-winning show, “The Talk,” on CBS.

“After last year’s critically successful Daytime telecast, it is with great disappointment that The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announces that there will not be a broadcast of the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy ® Awards,” said Bob Mauro, President. “After months of negotiations to find show sponsorship, the NATAS Executive Board has decided that the current climate for awards shows prohibits the possibility of a telecast this year. With that said, we will be putting on a world-class awards celebration honoring the best and brightest of Daytime television and look forward to an exciting show. All efforts regarding returning the annual gala to television in 2017 are underway.”

“We are especially grateful for our passionate Daytime fans and are looking forward to producing a grand gala that honors the talents and artistries of all the professionals that represent Daytime television,” said David Michaels, SVP, Daytime Emmy Awards.

Last year’s Executive Producer, Michael Levitt of Michael Levitt Productions has, again, signed on as Executive Producer of the 43rdAnnual Daytime Emmy Awards. Mike Rothman will also serve as Executive Producer.

The Daytime Emmy Awards recognize outstanding achievement in all fields of daytime television production and are presented to individuals and programs broadcast from 2:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. during the 2015 calendar year.

The Young and the Restless leads the soap pack with 27 overall nominations, including outstanding drama series, writing team, directing and all acting categories. General Hospital comes in second with 24 nominations. CBS leads the networks with 77 total nominations.
