NATAS determines its pre-noms from online ballots containing all entrants in each of four performer categories — Lead Actor and Actress and Supporting Actor and Actress — was sent to all 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. There are 11 Lead Actress pre-noms because of a tie.
