Soap opera actors enter into the final round of nominees for their work in 2018.

Sunday May 5 marks the ceremony date for the 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California, which, as in years’ past will likely stream live online only. The soap operas, Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital and Young and the Restless, and their actors will be honored for their 2018 work and the winners will take home a Daytime Emmy Statuette during daytime television’s most celebrated night. Soaps.com reported the 2019 Daytime Emmy pre-nominations back in January and will be posting the final nominees as they are announced live on CBS’ The Talk, including the technical nominees to follow.

“We are very excited today to announce the nominees for the 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards,” said Adam Sharp, President & CEO of The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). “We look forward to a grand celebration honoring the best of Daytime television both in front of the camera and behind as we return for the third year in a row to the classic Pasadena Civic Auditorium.”

“The incredible level of talent and craft reflected in our nominees continues to show the growing impact of Daytime television and the incredible diversity of programming the viewing audience has to choose from,” said Executive Director, Daytime, Brent Stanton. “With the help of some outstanding new additions to our staff, Rachel Schwartz and Lisa Armstrong, and the continued support of Luke Smith and Christine Chin, we have handled another record-breaking number of entries this year. Many thanks to our hundreds of great judges, who through their hard work and dedication, have come up with a stellar list of nominees that exemplify the best in Daytime!”

Lifetime Achievement Honorees

This year’s Lifetime Achievement Award will go to Judge Judy Sheindlin of the Judge Judy show. Sheindlin is the first from the court genre to receive this honor. As well as to Chef Jacques Pépin (Rachael Ray), the first in the culinary programming genre to be recognized for this award.

“The Daytime Emmy Awards recognize both the excellence and vibrant diversity of daytime television programming,” said NATAS President & CEO Adam Sharp. “Judge Judy Sheindlin epitomizes both, shaping one of the mainstay genres of our medium.” David Michaels, Senior Vice President and Executive Producer of the Daytime Emmy® Awards, went on to say, “Daytime Television wouldn’t be what it is today without Judy Sheindlin. Judge Judy redefined and reinvigorated the courtroom format propelling the genre to new heights.”
