Earlier today the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, announced the Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards.

All entrants that submitted this year were judged by their peers via an online ballot. Eligible judges viewed clips containing work of each performer and were required to select their top 10 performer choices. In the case of the Outstanding Lead Actress and Outstanding Supporting Actor categories, there were ties this year that resulted in more than 10 pre-nominees.

The candidates below will now advance to the blue ribbon screening round, which will determine both nominees and recipients. The final nominations will be announced May 1.
