    We had already heard that Association Television International would more than likely bowing out of producing this year’s telecast and today it became official. Jim Romanovich (ATI’s President) took to Twitter to tells fans and the daytime industry why the company decided its time to step away from producing the awards broadcast.

    Romanovich tweeted, “Regretfully, we have today officially passed on doing The Daytime Emmys for television this year. As fans of the soaps in particular, as well as being daytime producers ourselves, we have immensely enjoyed being a part of your celebration these past three years. In 2009, there was not going to be a Daytime Emmys for television, as you know. It was over. we felt it was important for it to continue on television for as long as possible to give actors, producers, writers and so forth the night of recognition they so deserve. It wasn’t always easy. In fact, it was quite challenging on many levels. Although it was never a money making project for us, it was prestigious, first and foremost, plus we wanted to do something important for the daytime community. I would like to think in some small way we have contributed in the interest of the daytime soap formula being created beyond television as we’re now seeing through various online ventures, such as what Prospect Park had tried to do, and series currently thriving on the web.

    But now is the time for the next generation of Daytime Emmys that should be more practical in execution. I would venture a guess that the very thing I had been discussing for several years, the internet, will play heavily into this year’s celebration. As the impact of technology accelerates exponentially year to year, watching a very intimate Daytime Emmys on the internet is where this was ultimately going to be. With that being said, CBS did want it again as well as two cable networks for second runs. Creatively this year, we were planning to do a more intimate Golden Globes style production to include a tribute to One Life To Live that really was going to be a souvenir to the daytime fans. Unfortunately, we are in production for two very big series for two different networks which will be announced in the next two weeks. In addition to these shows, we have another fourteen on the schedule through 2012 that will be taking up much of our focus. But you are a part of what we do and although we are no longer part of the Daytime Emmys, we will always be a part of the soap world and will continue to develop projects that promotes the genre.

    We want to thank NATAS and the entire daytime community for giving us this opportunity and we wish all of them the very best. I have no doubt the awards night will be most memorable, especially this year after losing two great shows. You the fans have a lot to look forward to and your shows need you now more than ever. The soap fans are the greatest and we’ll see you again soon.”

    In addition,On-Air On-Soaps can tell you that we recently spoke with NATAS to find out the status of this year’s Daytime Emmy ceremonies and several ideas and configurations are being considered including cable outlets, the Internet, and even going back to having it non-televised in a dinner setting. We can tell you that NATAS is seriously looking into making this a proper presentation with a fresh perspective and feel for the daytime industry to celebrates its accomplishments from the past year.

    Where and how would you like to see the Daytime Emmys presented this year? Let us know and we will relate it back to NATAS!

    ATI made a further mockery out of the telecast during their time producing the show and I am glad they will be not be producing them even if it means they are not telecast on TV.

    At this point, I think I’d like to see them folded into the Primetime Emmy telecast.  For one thing, it means a lot more exposure, which could certainly be a good thing.  Also, now that the Emmys are doing their awards in segments (Comedy, Drama, Reality, Minisereries/Movie, Late Night), they can combine the Late Night and Reality categories (as many reality shows as there are, there are only like three awards for them) and throw in a Daytime segment.  I realize that many of the awards would have to be presented off air at the Creative Arts Ceremony, but so what.  They could do Drama Series, Lead and Supporting Actor and Actress, Talk Show Host (which should only be one category), Talk Show, Game Show Host, and Game Show during the telecast, and present the others beforehand.  For some of the other categories (younger actor and actress, performer on a children’s program), they could do what primetime does with the guest actors, announce who the winners were and have them present something during the telecast.

    Seriously just have it on the Web, film it in some hotel banquet, and call it a day! Take it back to the 80’s when it was a smaller more intimate venue!

    I don’t see this happening for a number of reasons.   The main one being that they are run about two different agencies.  National Academy of Televison Arts and Sciences is in charge of the daytime emmys while the Academy of Televison Arts & Sciences is in charge of the primetime emmys.  They split off in the 1970’s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Academy_of_Television_Arts_and_Sciences 

    Even if they were to merge, I just don’t see the primetime telecast making any room for daytime honors.

    I’m betting it’ll be a dinner thing. And clips/highlights would be available on the site afterwards.

    Yeah, I know they are run by separate agencies and a remerging is extremely unlikely.  But if they could work it out, it would be my favorite solution and I think the one that makes the most sense from a fan perspective.

    I had an idea and doubt it would ever happen, but if Prospect Park wanted to make up their blunder to the daytime community, they could use some of the money that was raised for AMC/OLTL and produce the show for TV this year.
