Underwood is hosting the event for the sixth time; in the past, she has done it with her The Talk co-stars. Firstly, she will host the event from Los Angeles, where a stage has been set up. Secondly, the pre-taped programme will also include presenters and honorees accepting their awards from their own show studios and residences. A separate gala in July will honour daytime children’s programming, animation, and daytime lifestyle programming.
Underwood has been a part of The Talk for ten years. She is also the host of Sheryl Underwood Radio, which has 511 domestic and worldwide affiliates, as well as The World According to Sheryl – Sheryl Underwood Radio’s Podcast. The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, as well as the films Bulworth, I Got the Hook Up, and Beauty Shop. Underwood has been busy of late and we don’t blame her.
The show features programming that first aired in the calendar year 2020, and it is assessed by a panel of peers from the television business.
The Daytime Emmy Awards are produced by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and Associated Television International (ATI) and aired on CBS last year as a wholly remote programme. (CBS also has the broadcast rights to next year’s event.) NATAS’ executive producers are Adam Sharp and Steve Ulrich, while ATI’s executive producer and director is David McKenzie.
The late Alex Trebek, will compete in the game show category (which he won in 2019 and 2020), among the contestants. The late Larry King, from Ora TV’s Larry King Live has been nominated in the informative talk show host category.
