NATAS Announces 2019 Daytime Emmys Pre-Nominations for Drama Performer Categories

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences have announced the pre-nominations for all of the drama performer categories ahead of the 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

“The Young and the Restless” lead the pre-nominations with 21 candidates, but “General Hospital” and “Days of Our Lives” are close behind with 20 and 19 candidates, respectively.

“We are very proud to officially launch the 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with this list of extremely talented actors and actresses,” said Brent Stanton, executive director of Daytime Emmy Awards Administration. “We are also very excited that this year the pre-nomination round includes the very talented performers from the digital drama series.”

Peer judges viewed clips of each performer entry before selecting their top 10 choices for each of the categories. The votes were tabulated, and the candidates will now advance to the blue ribbon screening round on Feb. 21, where the final nominees and winners will be determined. Each category has 10 candidates, except for supporting actress in a digital drama, which has 11 after a tie.

The nominations will be announced on Wednesday, March 20. Here is the full list of pre-nominations:
