DRAMA PERFORMER PRE-NOMINATIONS ANNOUNCED FOR THE 41st ANNUAL DAYTIME ENTERTAINMENT EMMY® AWARDS

New York – March 3, 2014 – The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS), today announced the Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for the 41st Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Awards.

An online judging ballot containing all entrants in each of six performer categories was sent to registered, eligible peer judges.  The ballot contained a randomized order of performers in each category, regardless of their show affiliation.  Judges were required to view clips online containing the work of each performer entry before selecting their top 10 performer choices in each category.

Please note that the Outstanding Lead Actress category contains 12 pre-nominated performers and the Supporting Actor category contains 13 pre-nominated performers due to ties.  Ballots were submitted directly to Lutz & Carr, an independent accounting firm, who tabulated the results.  The candidates below who received the highest number of votes now advance to the blue ribbon screening round, scheduled to begin on March 26, 2014, which will determine both nominees and recipients.  All nominations will be announced May 1st.
