Here’s a look at the Daytime Emmy Awards, which recognize television programming from the hours of 2 a.m. to 6 p.m.
June 26, 2020 - The 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are presented virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Daytime Emmys are presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
Emmy Awards are named after “Immy,” an abbreviation for the image orthicon camera. It was later changed to “Emmy,” which seemed more feminine.
The first Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony was held in 1974. Prior to this, a small number of daytime awards were presented along with the Primetime Emmy Awards.
