    Should there be a category for Outstanding Performer in a Children’s Program at Primetime Emmys or Creative Arts Emmys? If there had been a category, who would the winners be each year?

    No. They get awarded at the Young Artist Awards.

    No more acting categories, there are enough of them as it is.

    I believe that they have it at the Daytime Emmys because Shia LaBeouf won a very deserved trophy with it.

    But most Disney Channel and Nickelodeon live action children programs air during primetime. Shia LaBeouf is the exception.

    Well, first of all, as someone who shamelessly follows the Young Artists Awards, I can tell ya – it’s kind of a joke (or at least it’s turned into one). And, honestly, I don’t think it’s an award many people take it seriously. It’s not a suitable equivalent to the Emmys or the Oscars.

    Second, the Daytime Emmys does have a category similar to this. And Shia Labeouf did win (I remember, being little, watching that moment and gasping…because he said the “H” word during his acceptance speech!!). But…I don’t quite understand why Even Stevens was eligible for the Daytime Emmys. In any case, many kids shows (particularly the popular ones that don’t appeal to only preschoolers) air in the Primetime. So the performers in those children shows wouldn’t be eligible for the Daytime Emmys anyway.

    Hm…otherwise, I honestly don’t really have much of an opinion. In the last few years, I never thought any actor from a children’s show was “Emmy worthy.” Maybe an adult or two but otherwise…I don’t think a category like this is necessary right now.

    I DO think that in the Children’s Program, they should go back to separating the reality shows from the fiction shows. I mean…how can Good Luck Charlie compete with a Nick News special on AIDS? Unfair.

    Pardon me for asking this, but dies the Original Poster mean “performer in a children’s series,” or does the OP really mean “young performer in a TV series”?

    I don’t think they need either of those categoies.  What’s next – Outstanding Judge in a Reality-Competition Program?

    (Then again, why not change Reality-Competition Show Host to Reality-Competition Show “Performance”, with the restriction that contestants are not eligible?)

    Someone suggested outstanding judge in a reality competition not too long ago.

    No joke.

    ^ That person was Tom.  He suggested it in this year’s Reality/Variety Series slugfest.

    I think you’d be hard pressed to find 5-6 Emmy worthy performances in children’s programming every year, so I say no.

    No. This category already exists at the Daytime Emmy Awards and has for many, many years.
