Added Jack Sussman, executive vp specials, music and live events at CBS: "Daytime television has been keeping viewers engaged and entertained for many years, so it is with great pride that we look forward to celebrating the best of the genre here on CBS."

The Daytime Emmy Awards honour individuals and programs broadcast between 2 a.m. and 6 p.m., as well as certain categories of digital and syndicated programming of similar content.

Awards will be presented in leading categories during the telecast, with recipients and other special guests appearing from home because of social distancing rules put in place as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Daytime Emmys and Creative Arts ceremonies were originally scheduled to take place June 12 to 14, but they were postponed due to the pandemic.
