BIG CHANGES AT DAYTIME EMMYS

The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will include a new category, reveals the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS): "Outstanding New Approaches Drama Series" for shows like VENICE and TAINTED DREAMS. Additionally, daytime dramas that have produced 35 episodes in the calendar year of 2013 are available for entry in Outstanding Drama Series, which means the rebooted AMC and OLTL will be eligible to compete against the broadcast network soaps. “I strongly believe that every broadcast entity should have a chance to compete for an Emmy® Award in a true peer to peer competition,” said David Michaels, Senior Executive Director, Daytime Emmy® Awards.

Hasn't been this known for a while? Or is it now finally official?

It's good for web series that they're getting the same chance as web shows competing for Primetime Emmys, but I'm also seeing some flaws with this. Shows with just 35 episodes competing against shows with 250 episodes a year is not an equal race. On the one hand, AMC and OLTL don't have as many options to choose from to submit as other shows do. On the other hand, broadcast soaps could feel that their work is being degraded if they're placed on the same level as shows with so few episodes.

Also, in regards to Oustanding New Approaches, how new can one consider a web series that already won an Emmy 3 years ago?

I'm just curious, what's the concern about the overall number of shows being different? Isn't it only one episode that's judged as part of this?

I hope that doesn't come off sarcastic, I don't intend it to.

What makes a webseries a daytime (or primetime) show? I love how the Emmys are appropriating them, but to my mind it's a little off.

That's what I'd like to know. Why is House of Cards primetime, but Tainted Dreams daytime, when they're both available anytime? Is it in the number of episodes or the length of episodes? Does some weird mathematics decide what prize a show will compete for? Or is it about the people associated with these shows? Like, does someone think that Kevin Spacey and other Netflix stars are too big to compete for a Daytime Emmy?

Shows that are originally broadcast between the hours of 2:00AM and 6:00PM may submit for Daytime Emmy consideration. A new, previously unseen episode must be posted (made available to the public) during the 2:00AM to 6:00PM timeframe in order to qualify. If a new, previously unseen episode is first posted before 2:00AM or after 6:00PM, it would be considered primetime. Continued availability online has no bearing on qualifications. The time the episode first became available is the deciding factor.
