This year’s nominees were selected from more than 2,700 submissions that originally premiered in 2019.

“Now more than ever, daytime television provides a source of comfort and continuity made possible by these nominees’ dedicated efforts and sense of community,” said Adam Sharp, president and CEO of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), in a statement. “Their commitment to excellence and demonstrated love for their audience never cease to brighten our days.”

Since 1974, the Daytime Emmy Awards have served to recognize “outstanding achievement” in daytime television programming and are presented to individuals and programs broadcast between 2 a.m. and 6 p.m., as well as “digital and syndicated programming of similar content.”

The awards will be presented in a two-hour special on June 26 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the CBS Television Network, with recipients and special guests appearing from home due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Emmy nominations for unscripted and non-fiction categories are listed below, with credits supplied by NATAS:
