June 22nd, 2014, is the date that daytime takes over the night. Did that make sense? If not, keep up, keep up. You need to pay attention if you want to get Daytime Emmy® award show tickets for you and your posse. We move and talk quickly in these parts. The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, on the other hand, moves a little slower, as in they’ve finally made it into the 21st century by bringing their submission and voting process online. We’re glad that you caught up, and yes, you read that correctly. The entry and voting process has finally gone digital–meaning that all of those great shows don’t need to mail their entries in on papyrus scrolls or clay tablets toted to the academy by mules.
This is a big year for the Daytime Emmys®. First, the 41st year of this soapy talk show extravaganza hauled in a record-setting 1,400 entries, producing 350 nominations in 60 odd categories, including the new Latin programming section. Second, the award show is taking place at the mother of all venues, none other than the Beverly Hilton where the carpets are spangled with stardust. Those with tickets to this ever-popular award show will be entreated to dazzling appearances and trophy presentations involving some of the hottest and most traditional shows on television. This year, the CBS powerhouse soap “The Young and the Restless” reeled in 26 nominations for its cast and gripping plots. On the talk show side, Ms. Ellen DeGeneres grabbed nine hearty nominations to claim the top spot in her category.
With 61 individual cast and programming nominations, CBS is the king of the small screen. Syndicates in the talk and game show categories earned a large share of nominations, but other new and not-so-new networks are chasing their tails. PBS earned a solid 44 nominations, (without any help from “Downtown Abbey” but a great deal of assistance from “Sesame Street”.) Nickelodeon grabbed 37 nominations; ABC earned 30; and the carton and kid’s show destination The Hub claimed a very respectable 24.
If you can’t keep up with all of the shows and the nominations, you can keep up with the action. You just have to get your Daytime Emmy® award show tickets, and the entire award show experience will be brought to you. Fortunately, we know exactly where you can find your tickets and after-party passes. That’s right here at www.thevipconcierge.com.
