NATAS chairman Malachy Wienges offered a statement, stating that with the show available by live-stream, now fans around the world can converge and watch the ceremonies live for the first time : “We are so thrilled to be sharing 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with a global audience in such an innovative and contemporary fashion. We are confident that the expert team we’ve brought on will flawlessly execute an evening that celebrates the outstanding talent being honored and allows fans to be a part of the action.”
Mr. Wienges is bringing in Spike Jones, Jr and SJ2 Entertainment who will be producing the live show at the Beverly Hilton. Terry D. Peterson, Owner, Artistic Director, Verite Productions, Inc. Paul Colichman and HERE Media will handle the social media for the event.
That is the "party line", but are they trying to convince us or themselves? Will millions of people converge online to watch the Daytime Emmy's and when they say fans do they mean all daytime fans .or soap fans?
The Daytime Emmys are going to be available live http://www.daytimeemmys.net at 5p.m. from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on June 22nd.
