Daytime Emmy Update: ATI Visits DAYS

As previously mentioned, ATI president of Worldwide Media and Entertainment, Jim Romanovich, who was the key player in bringing the Daytime Emmy Awards to The CW, plans to visit the sets of all eight daytime dramas before the final nominations are announced. He kicked off his tour with a visit to the set of DAYS OF OUR LIVES on Tuesday.

Today was a great day at DAYS OF OUR LIVES. I have always respected the talent that goes into making a daytime show. And I'm talking not just about the cast although they were remarkable as well. Everyone who walks that floor is a part of its success. Success, such as what I witnessed at DOOL today, is probably one of the hardest things ever to accomplish in the entertainment field. In film as an actor, you work for about 6 weeks to 2 months and you're done. Most of the time is sitting in your trailer. In TV, you do one show per week. In daytime, you can do more than one episode per DAY for five days! Multiply that by 36 weeks a year every year. That's 180 pages of dialogue or more a day and then while you work at finding your moments in the script for Monday, you have to abandon them Monday night because Tuesday is another chapter. Hopefully, they felt my visit was worth their while as well.

Romanovich will be visiting the GENERAL HOSPITAL set today.

Nominees will be announced May 14. About a half-dozen top categories, like drama series, talk shows and lead acting, will be unveiled during the fourth hour of the TODAY show on NBC. Another half-dozen categories, like supporting acting, will be announced during a reception at the Hearst Building in New York that evening, followed by the release of the full list of nominees a few minutes later.
