Each year, soap opera fans look forward to the Daytime Emmy Awards and this year’s 2023 50th ceremony was planned to once again be broadcast live on CBS, as well as on demand on Paramount Plus, from the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles, California. Previously, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and CBS announced that the ceremony would take place on Friday, June 16, from 9 pm to 11 pm, which would mark the 17th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards — more than any other network — but there’s since been a change…

President and CEO of NATAS, Adam Sharp, just announced that due to the WGA Strike, the ceremony has been postponed, as is the Creative Arts & Lifestyle ceremony planned for Saturday, June 17, pending a strike resolution. “We look forward to our community gathering together as one to celebrate our Golden Anniversary and all of the talented nominees and honorees at a later date,” Sharp added.

We will be sure to update everyone as news develops surrounding the ceremony…

Back in April, fans learned that we wouldn’t have to wait another year to find out if the show will take place in 2024 because NATAS and the network also announced a two-year deal to broadcast the 51st Daytime Emmy Awards on CBS next year.

“We are thrilled to be back with our incredible broadcast partner CBS for two years,” said Adam Sharp, president and CEO of NATAS, adding, “In commemorating the show’s golden anniversary this year, we look forward to honoring and celebrating the beloved world of daytime television.”

“CBS has a storied history in daytime and we are delighted to continue having the Daytime Emmys on the Network for the next two years,” said Mackenzie Mitchell, vice president of specials, music and live events at CBS. “We look forward to celebrating the show’s 50th anniversary and highlighting the best that daytime has to offer.”
