2018-2019 TRANSPARENCY REPORT
In response to the findings of last year’s independent investigation into administration of the Daytime Emmy® Awards, NATAS committed to publishing an annual Transparency Report. The goal of this report is to provide greater insight into and context around the many actions taken by the administration team and National Awards Committee in their effort to adjudicate a fair competition.
Every challenge or substantive inquiry raised in the course of the 46th Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards competition was logged and is reflected in this report. In cases where the resulting actions required public disclosure — such as the disqualification of an announced nominee — the summaries identify the specific entries affected. In all other cases, the summaries anonymize the identities of the respective entries and claimants.
This is the first Transparency Report published by NATAS — or to our knowledge, by any similar awards competition — and we welcome community feedback on its content and format.
