Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the 2020 show was virtual and filmed in the homes of the host, presenters and winners. Last year, a pre-taped, downsized event was staged in Burbank.

Overall this year, CBS ‘“The Young and the Restless” received the most Daytime Emmy nominations, with 18, followed closely by ABC’s “General Hospital,” with 17. Among Outlets, syndicated fare earned the top tally, with 48 Nods for various program distributors, followed by two Broadcasters tied on top: ABC and CBS, both with 31. (Netflix was next, with 27.)

Among this year’s other key Highlights: The Daytime Drama category – which has been shrinking since the broadcast networks reduced their serial output – has expanded back to five Nominees for the first time since 2014, thanks to the addition of “Days of Our Lives” spinoff “Beyond Salem.”

Meanwhile, this reps the first year under the agreement between the two major TV academies in which several categories have been realigned to focus on the genre, rather than dayparts, as a way to divide Eligibility between the Primetime (administered by the LA-based TV Academy ) and Daytime Emmys (handled by the NY-based NATAS). It’s also the first year that children’s and family programming categories have been removed from both shows and relocated to a new Children’s & Family Emmy Award competition and ceremony, the first new Emmy show since 1979. (That event will take place in December.)
