    I really hope they don’t do this. I would suggest that they limit the number of nominees to four instead of five since there are so few potential nominees.

    This article is interesting:

    Finally, after years of people yelling about voting blocs in the Daytime Emmys they finally have proof – only after CBS and ABC started losing. All of those years Days was snubbed because ABC and CBS blocked them from competing was so egregious, NATAS should be ashamed of themselves for not doing anything about it. There’s a reason why GH and Y&R won Best Drama year after year without deserving it. Their wins should be erased.

    The Daytime Emmys continue to be a mess!

    I don’t love the idea of combining the male and female younger categories, but it’s definitely preferable to me than just having the younger actors compete in supporting or lead. It’s pretty clear to me after listening to many actors discuss their category placement that much of the industry, and certainly many of the actors who judge the Emmys, consider category placement to be much more a matter of historical connection to the show and years of experience in the industry than screentime during the eligibility period or strength of the work. Most younger actors would have no shot at cracking those categories regardless of how much airtime they have or how strong the work is.

    I also don’t think it’s a particularly fair comparison between the combined categories at the Grammys and a combined younger performer category at the Daytime Emmys, primarily because an artist who puts out an album during the eligibility period can get nominated for a bunch of different awards, but an actor on one soap all year only has one shot. It feels less fair to me.
