As of yet, a recipient for the Lifetime Achievement Award hasn’t been announced. As detailed in the General Rule Book, this prestigious award goes to “an individual, a company, or an organization for outstanding achievement in the arts, sciences, or management of television that is either of a cumulative nature or so extraordinary and universal in nature as to be beyond the scope of the awards presented in the categories of achievement. Members of the NATAS National Awards Committee accept nominations, and the Committee and NATAS Trustees choose the recipient(s). In recent years there have been recipients at both the Daytime Emmy® Awards and Daytime Creative Arts Emmy® ceremonies.” will return with future updates surrounding the event and which soap opera actors from “Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of our Lives,” “General Hospital” and “The Young and the Restless” will be on hand to present awards.
