Normally, the Daytime Emmys are held on a Sunday evening with the Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony held the Friday evening beforehand. But this year, NATAS is adding a third night with an additional Saturday evening ceremony. Unfortunately, at this time, they have not yet revealed which categories will be awarded in which night, so stay tuned as we continue to update this developing story.
