As we <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/12/nominations-for-naacp-image-awards-announced-daytime-actors-not-included">reported </a>yesterday, the 46th Annual NAACP Image Awards will take place on <strong>Friday, February 6</strong>. For the first time in at least 20 years, there will be no representation of daytime as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has removed the Outstanding Actor and Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama Series categories from the upcoming awards show. When we went to press yesterday, the NAACP was unable to officially comment on the matter. That has since changed.

On Tuesday, December 9, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) announced the nominees for the 46th Annual NAACP Image Awards. For the first time since at least 1994, when the category was first recognized, no actor or actress from a daytime drama series was nominated in the Outstanding Actor or Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama Series following the organizations decision not to include the categories this year. Representatives for the NAACP have yet to officially comment on the matter at press time.
