Daytime Emmys Announce Drama Performer Pre-Nominations

The Drama Performer pre-nominations for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced Wednesday by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in cooperation with The Television Academy. “The Young and the Restless,” starring Eric Braeden (above right), led with 21 pre-nominations. Also noteworthy is the pre-nomination for “Days of our Lives” star Alison Sweeney (left), who has left the series.

Registered and eligible peer judges selected their top 10 performers in each of four categories – lead actor and actress and supporting actor and actress – after viewing clips of each performer in each category. Due to exact ties in voting, there are 11 pre-nominations in the Lead Actor and Supporting Actress category.

Pre-nominees with the highest numbers of votes will move onto the blue ribbon screening round, scheduled to begin on Feb. 24, which will determine final nominees and winners. All pre-nominees for younger actor and younger actress automatically move into the blue screening round. Nominees will be announced Mar. 26.
