The Daytime Emmys recognize outstanding achievement in television programming and crafts in a variety of categories, including daytime dramas, talk shows, instructional programming, hosting and legal/courtroom programs.

The 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards is produced by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and Associated Television International. Adam Sharp and Steve Ulrich are executive producers for NATAS, and David McKenzie is executive producer from ATI.
CBS will present the Daytime Emmys live from 9-11 p.m. ET on June 24 and delayed in that slot in the West. The Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmy ceremony will stream live Saturday, June 18, at watch.TheEmmys.tv.
