It is the day soap opera fans wait for all year long. The 2019 Daytime Emmys are tonight, but fans won’t be able to watch the awards show on television.
The highly anticipated awards show was previously broadcast during the day on television, to keep with the theme of honoring those who work in the specific genre. Then for years, the awards show had a coveted prime time slot, but sadly that is no longer the case. For the past four years, the Daytime Emmy Awards could not find a home on television, disappointing thousands of die-hard fans.
However, after a severe backlash in 2016 when fans were unable to watch the show anywhere, the National Academy of Television Arts and Science began to provide a viewing alternative. The 2019 Daytime Emmys and red carpet will be live streamed on various online platforms, giving fans plenty of opportunities to find out if their favorite stars take home the coveted award.
