The sad part of the Daytime Emmy Awards is that it's not going to be aired on television, according to Variety. “After months of negotiations to find show sponsorship, the NATAS executive board has decided that the current climate for awards shows prohibits the possibility of a telecast this year,” said NATAS president Bob Mauro. “With that said, we will be putting on a world-class awards celebration honoring the best and brightest of Daytime television and look forward to an exciting show. All efforts regarding returning the annual gala to television in 2017 are under way.” The trade publication also reports that organizers are looking to live stream the show online on May 1.
