“The 50th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” is the latest live telecast to be impacted by the Writers Strike, with CBS and The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announcing the planned June 16 telecast has been postponed.
In a statement, NATAS President & CEO Adam Sharp says, “‘The 50th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards’ planned for Friday, June 16 on CBS is postponed due to the WGA strike. In addition, the Creative Arts & Lifestyle ceremony, planned for Saturday, June 17, has been postponed pending a strike resolution. We look forward to our community gathering together as one to celebrate our Golden Anniversary and all of the talented nominees and honorees at a later date.”
Since the strike began on Tuesday, May 2, the MTV Movie & TV Awards went with a pre-taped show and discussions continue over whether the upcoming scheduled telecast of “The 76th Annual Tony Awards” is to go on as planned, despite the WGA denying a request for a strike waiver request.
