daytime emmy awards logo

As promised, I have returned to the topic of this latest awards show which is the Daytime Emmy Awards. We noted during the post about the nominees that this year it would be held virtually based on all the chaos inflicted by the Coronavirus Pandemic and the show would be hosted by the ladies from The Talk. Each one reporting from the safety of their own home and if you weren’t aware of the folks involved its Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba and Marie Osmond. Now as mentioned, we don’t watch a lot of daytime television and instead use the hometime to catch up with the night before DVR stuff or just writing our next post. That being said here now are the recently revealed winners of the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. Enjoy.

Presenting The 65th Annual Drama Desk Awards Winners

The 65th Annual Drama Desk Awards were set to be given out during a special presentation of NY1’s Broadway focused “On Stage” program a few weeks ago but the station needed to pause that broadcast based on the nightly protesting and rioting that had been going on in our metropolis. Initially planned to be a live broadcast at New York’s Town Hall, the program became a virtual one when the problems surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic caused the entire city to come to a standstill. Earlier this evening the broadcast ran and the winners were given their trophies. Here is the complete rundown of the winners.

Presenting The 65th Annual Drama Desk Awards Nominees

If there is one thing that I’ve really enjoyed sharing with the readers of “The Chronicles”, it’s the assorted awards show nominations and winners circle rundowns. I was hoping to have the rundown for The TONY Awards but that event was postponed due to the pandemic back in March (discussed HERE if you missed it) and I don’t think that the nominees were ever announced in April as we were originally reading but I digress. Though the practice of my revealing this information from assorted sources and the official press channels is nothing new anymore, this particular one is brand-new to our list of broadcasts. Ladies and gentlemen get ready for the full nominees for the 65th Annual Drama Desk Awards. I’ll return at the close with some final editorial.
