The Daytime Emmys will air at 8 p.m ET on Sunday, April 26, live from Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California. According to Emmy Online, the show will be hosted by actress, model and former talk show host, Tyra Banks.
This year, the two-hour show will be broadcast on the POP TV Network (formerly the TV Guide Network), a network that is carried by many cable TV and satellite providers including DirecTV, Dish Network, Verizon, and Cox. Unfortunately, the Daytime Emmys will not be live streaming online this year — the show will only be shown on POP, and there will be no red carpet coverage.
Which nominees will take home awards on Sunday night? The popular soap opera General Hospital leads the pack with 28 nominations, with The Young and the Restless coming in a close second with 25 nominations. Ellen DeGeneres dominates the talk show category with 10 nominations and is up against top contenders Steve Harvey of the Steve Harvey Show, and Live with Kelly and Michael‘s Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan.
Several writers from Soaps gave their predictions for this year’s big winners, including Anthony Geary (General Hospital) for Outstanding Lead Actor; Alison Sweeney (Days of our Lives) for Outstanding Lead Actress; Linsey Godfrey (Bold and the Beautiful) for Outstanding Supporting Actress; and Jacob Young (Bold and the Beautiful) for Outstanding Supporting Actor.
Gold Derby predicts that Donna Mills (General Hospital), Meredith Baxter (The Young and the Restless), and Ray Wise, (The Young and the Restless) will all take home Daytime Emmys on Sunday night. See a full list of 2015 Daytime Emmy Awards nominees here.
