The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has announced dates, locations, and lifetime achievement honorees for the 2022 Daytime, News, and Documentary, and the first children's and family Emmy.
The event will take place on Friday, June 24, at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium and on CBS, for the third year in a row, with star John Aniston as the lifetime achievement award recipient. Daytime Emmy nominations will be announced on Thursday, May 5.
The Daytime Creative Arts & Lifestyle Emmy Awards will take place on Saturday, June 18, with This Old House as the lifetime achievement honoree. There are also Sesame Street and 60 Minutes as the only programs, rather than individuals, to receive NATAS lifetime achievement certificates.
The Children's and Family Emmy Awards will be held on Sunday, December 11, at the Wilshire Ebell Theater in Los Angeles, where they will receive the lifetime achievement award.
As part of the Daytime and Primetime Emmys, the Children's and Family Emmy Awards were established as a separate competition and ceremony, recognizing the increase in children's and family programming and submissions, and adjusting to changing viewer habits.
The NATAS has announced dates for the News and Documentary Emmy Awards, which will take place on September 28 (News) and 29 (Documentary) at the Palladium Times Square in New York, and has designated Judy Woodruff, a PBS NewsHour anchor, and natural history filmmaker David Attenborough as lifetime achievement honorees respectively.
After being virtual in 2020 and 2021, all NATAS events are scheduled to take place in person.
