50th Annual Daytime Emmys Nominations Revealed, and Awards Show Postponed Due to Writers Strike

The nominations for the 50th Annual Daytime Emmys have been announced!  

Writers Strike Delay

“The 50th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards planned for Friday, June 16 on CBS is postponed due to the WGA strike,” NATAS president/CEO Adam Sharp said in a statement obtained by Variety. “In addition, the Creative Arts & Lifestyle ceremony, planned for Saturday, June 17, has been postponed pending a strike resolution. We look forward to our community gathering together as one to celebrate our Golden Anniversary and all of the talented nominees and honorees at a later date.”

When are the Daytime Emmys?

The awards ceremony was scheduled for Friday, June 16, 2023, and would have been held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. As of May 16, the Daytime Emmys have been postponed until after the Writers’ Strike ends.

How to watch the Daytime Emmys?

Fans will still likely be able to watch the Daytime Emmys once again once the writers’ strike has ended. They will not be held on Friday, June 16 on CBS or Paramount+ to watch the ceremony. SoapsSpoilers will update when word of the new airdate of the ceremony.

Here they are, the 50th Annual Daytime Emmy nominations.

Originally reported April 26, 2023:

A few reminders of how the nomination process works: These nominations are based solely on the work the actors did in 2022. Not 2023.

Each actor puts themself up to receive a nomination, and the newcomers can submit even one scene and still receive a nom.
