Not only will fans be able to tune in to the red carpet show, as well as the 44th Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday April 30 via Facebook: Daytime Emmy Awards and Twitter: Daytime Emmy Awards, they can also watch as Hennesy hosts two Facebook Live events for the nominees from the NATAS Gifting Suites on Saturday April 29 at 4:00 PM and again at 7:00 PM Eastern.

“I am absolutely thrilled and so honored to be tapped to host FB Live’s red carpet coverage for Daytime Emmy weekend,” said Hennesy. “The glitz, the gowns, the stress, the nerves, the gossip…’She said WHAT?’ I’ll bring you just as much as they’ll let me…and then some!”
