Soap Dish: Daytime Emmy Awards Pre-Emmy Nominations

March 4, 2012
By

It is Soap Dish time again my friends and this week I am dishing about the pre-nominations for the Daytime Emmy Awards. They were announced this week and I have thoughts on not only the nods but the awards show itself.

There you have it the fantastic list of names.

Now onto my thoughts about the Daytime Emmys. I think that even though the powers that be are going through the process I do not think that fans will get to see the show. Although I am glad all these people have a chance at being nominated it sucks for fans because even if the award show is televised if it is anything like last year’s show it will not have anything to do with daytime. I could go on about this but until we know exactly what is going on with the show, so for now I say congrats to all who got pre-noms and good luck.
