The 50th edition of the awardsdaytime emmy was indefinitely postponed in response to the strike of the scriptwriters of Hollywood, as reported on Tuesday by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).
“We made a lot of efforts to resolve the issues created by the strike and potential picketing at the ceremonies, but ultimately…we couldn’t see the way forward to celebrate the cohesive and festive community event our golden wedding anniversary deserves. “The organization wrote in a statement.
The event, which was scheduled for June 16, was postponed indefinitely, as was the “Creative Arts & Lifestyle” ceremony, which would take place a day later.
The Daytime Emmys are just one of the many Emmy Awards that recognize the excellence of American television, although the most popularly known are the awards that honor primetime television productions called Primetime Emmys.
This year, productions such as “The Kelly Clarkson Show”, “The View”, “Uncharted Adventure”, “The Drew Barrymore Show”, “This Old House”, among other titles, are nominated.
In the letter, the organization also assured that the decision had also been made pending possible actions that may result from the negotiations that the Directors Union (DGA) and the Actors Union (SAG-AFTRA) have with the Alianza de Film and Television Producers (AMPTP) in the following days.
On May 2, the Union of Screenwriters of the United States (WGA) announced the initiation of a strike indefinite after not reaching an agreement in the realization of a new agreement with the AMPTP.
Since then, numerous weekly television programs halted the production of new episodes, award celebrations such as the MTV Movie & TV Awards could not be held in person and some of the series, even the most successful, stopped their development.
The last strike of scriptwriters which Hollywood went through in 2007-2008, lasted almost 100 days and caused huge monetary losses.
