The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) is a service organization dedicated to the advancement of the arts and sciences of television and the promotion of creative leadership for artistic, educational, and technical achievements within the television industry. It recognizes excellence in television with the coveted 46th Daytime Emmy Awards Winners Announced for News & Documentary, Sports, Daytime and Daytime Creative Arts programming, as well as achievements in television Technology & Engineering. NATAS membership consists of more than 17,000 broadcast and media professionals represented in 19 regional chapters across the country.

As we reported on September 18, 2018, it seems as though awards season just wrapped up, but even so, has the date for next year’s 2019 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony. To clarify to fans, in regards to last night’s 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) tweeted, “My yearly response tweet! NATAS does the @DaytimeEmmys , @sportsemmys , @newsemmys When is the Daytime Emmy Awards Show but not the Primetime Emmys. They are done by the other @TelevisionAcad in Los Angeles. News & Doc Emmys coming up on 10/1,” then went on to announce the date for the annual daytime ceremony, “Next Daytime Emmys on May 5th, 2019!”

A year after an awards debacle rocked the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) and nearly took down the Daytime Emmys, the organization has instituted new rules that officials hope have made this year’s proceedings fairer. One major one was to stop the practice of posting acting reel submissions from some key categories online.Five years ago NATAS instituted the practice of sharing the clips with the hopes of building “fan excitement for the telecast and engagement on social media,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp tells Variety.
