    Change of plans.

    Updated on May 8:

    The nominations will be announced on May 9 by Kathie Lee and Hoda of "The Today Show" at 10:00 AM EST on NBC.

    Same Day Update:

    The Daytime Emmy nominations have been postponed until Wednesday May 9, due to the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences trying to come to a deal with Time Warner's HLN network. If all goes through, fans should be able to watch this year's award show on HLN on Saturday June 23. Broadcasting Cable is also reporting that the NATAS is hoping to secure AOL as a social media partner for the awards.

    Reported Earlier:

    Although the final nominations for this year's 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were supposed to be announced tomorrow, May 4, there will be a delay.

    "General Hospital" writer Michele Val Jean ‏took to Twitter and announced, "Daytime Emmy nominations announcement postponed till the 8th or 9th (possibly) Hmmm."
