Coming under flack for a number of years, the procedures for nominating the Daytime Drama series and the Daytime Drama series performers was finally revamped for the 30th Annual Daytime Emmys. One of the major changes included a “Pre Screening” process. Here is how nominations are now derived as a result of the revised nominating procedures:
(Procedures for Drama Series and Drama Series Performers only.)
1) Programs must submit an entry form.
2) One hour programs will submit one episode and half hour programs will submit two episodes.
3) Each program will provide a 100 word summary of the events leading up to, as well as, events leading out of the submitted episode(s).
4) Submitted episodes will be pre-screened by specially assembled panels in New York and Los Angeles to determine the nominees.
Performers for a Drama Series
1) Performers will submit an entry form.
2) NATAS will provide each qualified, registered voter with a ballot of eligible entrants from their show (and their show only) in each of the Performer categories.
3) Performer categories will be voted upon by qualified, registered Performers, Directors and Emmy eligible Producers from their individual show only.
4) Ballots will be signed by the individual and returned to the accounting firm.
5) The accounting firm will tabulate the votes and the two entrants per category, per show to receive the most votes will move onto specially assembled pre-screen panels in New York and Los Angeles to determine the final nominees.
Each show will be allowed to have an equal number of voters on the pre-screen panels. (This number will be determined by the Academy after voter registration.) The remainder of the panel will be comprised of qualified voters from the Academys’ respective peer groups.
The program and the performers who received the most votes at the pre-screen panels will become the nominees and will move on to the regular Blue Ribbon panels.
**Errors and Omissions**
Errors or omissions in the listing of nominations must be corrected NO LATER THAN March 28, 2003 prior to the Emmy Judging Panels. It is the responsibility of the claimant in any eligibility dispute to provide the Academy with evidence of eligibility. There will be a flat fee of $150 for each eligible individual added between March 12 and March 28, 2003 with no corrections allowed after the deadline.
Previously Produced Material
All entrants are required to reveal in writing any previously produced material submitted for Emmy consideration which was not done by the entrant(s) themselves.
Executive Producer or Designated Show Executive must verify all credits. Intentional falsification of credits will result in disqualification of the entire entry.
All nominees will receive a detailed description of the viewing tape requirements for final Emmy judging along with their nomination announcement.
We request that “for your consideration” cassettes not be sent to Academy members requesting support for nominations.
How are the winners chosen?
Emmy winners are chosen from the list of nominees through Emmy Judging Panel screenings. At these screenings nominees for each category are viewed by panels of peers who are chosen first from the memberships of NATAS and ATAS. The judges may not have any conflict of interest with any of the nominated achievements screened by their panel. Panels must view the nominated achievement in its entirety, with the following exceptions: single camera photography, lighting direction, makeup and hairstyling. Art directors may fast-scan in specials, directors judging parades, pageants, awards shows and other specials, recipient speeches, lifetime achievement awards, etc. Achievements in categories affiliated with the six above-mentioned peer groups may be fast-scanned only when the panel unanimously agrees.
Panelists vote in secret and are instructed in accordance with the guidelines established by the certified public accountants retained by NATAS.
