The Daytime Emmy Awards are finally just around the corner! Thanks to a prolonged game of "Not it!" played by the major networks when it came time to decide who would air the show, the show wasn't broadcast in its normal May/June slot, and has instead found itself on the CW, in August, on a Sunday. Next Sunday, August 30th, at 8 PM to be precise! Check back here for more details about our coverage of the show.
We are, as always, excited. "Why," you may ask, "Do you so look forward to an awards show with terrible production values and whose decisions are almost always maddening?" For many reasons, dear readers, for many reasons:
- If your favorite actor wins an Emmy, you can smugly pat yourself on the back and say that you knew he/she was the best in daytime.
- If your favorite actor loses an Emmy, you can rant and rave, and discuss the intelligence of the Emmy voters with disdain.
- Forced banter between the presenters!
- Hot people in formal wear.
- The possibility--nay, probability--that at least five people will wear something so ugly that it will either burn your corneas or amuse you for days.
The Daytime Emmys have it all!
