June 26, 2020 – The 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are presented virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.


Daytime Emmys are presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Emmy Awards are named after “Immy,” an abbreviation for the image orthicon camera. It was later changed to “Emmy,” which seemed more feminine.
