Acad announces broadband noms

Daytime Emmys to honor Internet content

Internet videos showing volcanic eruptions of Diet Coke will compete along with Web shorts featuring the cast of NBC’s “The Office” in newly created categories for the upcoming Daytime Emmy Awards.

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced the nominations Thursday for outstanding drama, comedy, variety and children’s original programming for broadband, specifically computers, cell phones and other handheld devices.

The New York-based organization teamed with social networking Web site MySpace.com for the first time to solicit nominations from the public, resulting in the recognition of independent productions as well as programs created by traditional TV networks.

This is only the second year the group has honored programs created for high-speed Internet, or broadband, connections. Last year, the first broadband Emmy was awarded to AOL for its 2005 Webcast of the worldwide “Live 8” concert.

The awards for broadband programming will be given at a June 14 ceremony in Los Angeles. The Daytime Emmy Awards will be televised live on June 15.
