Day­time Em­mys streamed on­line as in­ter­est dwin­dles

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ques­tion: What hap­pened to the Day­time Em­mys? Were they tele­vised? When and what chan­nel? Why are they so down­played? I don’t un­der­stand it.

An­swer: The main Day­time Em­mys were handed out April 30. Win­ners in­cluded Steve Har­vey (both for host­ing his talk show and for host­ing “Fam­ily Feud”), “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “En­ter­tain­ment Tonight,” “Good Morn­ing Amer­ica” and “Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal.” The cer­e­mony was not tele­vised; it was streamed on­line on Face­book and Twit­ter-Periscope. You can now find the pre­sen­ta­tion on YouTube or check out the win­ners list at em­my­on­ As what calls “a re­flec­tion of dwin­dling in­ter­est in soaps and other pre-prime­time fare,” the day­time awards have not been on a broad­cast net­work for some time. They have been on­line only for three of the past four years — and weren’t even a live pre­sen­ta­tion one of those years.
