Wendy Williams and the ladies of The Real are up for Daytime Emmy Awards.
According to The Grio, The Wendy Williams Show is up for outstanding talk show while The Real has picked up nominations for outstanding talk show, hair, makeup and outstanding entertainment talk show host.
Unfortunately, this year’s ceremony wont be broadcast due to issues securing a show sponsor.
The president of NATAS said in a press statement,
“After last year’s critically successful Daytime [Emmys] telecast [on Pop], it is with great disappointment that the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announces that there will not be a broadcast of the 43rd annual Daytime Emmy Awards. After months of negotiations to find show sponsorship, the NATAS Executive Board has decided that the current climate for awards shows prohibits the possibility of a telecast this year. With that said, we will be putting on a world-class awards celebration honoring the best and brightest of daytime television and look forward to an exciting show. All efforts regarding returning the annual gala to television in 2017 are underway.”
Broadcast or not, these ladies definitely deserve the recognition. Congratulations!
