Daytime Emmys 2022: Everything You Need to Know

Soap fans are gearing up for daytime’s biggest night of the year as the 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards approach. And as the event nears, we’ve got answers to all your burning questions about this year’s ceremony!

When are the 2022 Daytime Emmys?

This year, the Daytime Emmys will be held on Friday, June 24. The Creative Arts & Lifestyle Emmys are scheduled for Saturday, June 18.

Where are the 2022 Daytime Emmys being held?

The ceremony is returning once again to the Pasadena Civic Center, after two years when the COVID-19 pandemic restricted in-person gatherings. The 2020 ceremony was entirely virtual while the 2021 show was a hybrid of some awards being accepted in person and others virtually from the winners’ homes. However, NATAS has not yet revealed how expansive the in-person ceremony will be this year.

How can I watch the 2021 Daytime Emmys?

Fans were thrilled when the Daytime Emmys returned to television in 2020, and CBS will be broadcasting the 2022 ceremony live in primetime just as they did last year! Before then, the last time the awards aired on television was when cable network Pop TV broadcast them in 2015. In between, the ceremony was streamed online, and NATAS even developed its own streaming service to host the Daytime Emmys and other awards shows.
