The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced Wednesday, January 25, 2017, the Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for the 44th Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards.
Ever wonder how they come to pick the pre-nominees? Here's the process:
An online judging ballot containing all entrants in each of four performer categories (Lead Actor and Actress and Supporting Actor and Actress) was sent to all registered, eligible peer judges. The ballot contained a randomized order of performers in each category, regardless of their show affiliation. Judges were required to view clips online containing the work of each performer entry before selecting their top 10 performer choices in each category.
