For the 39th annual event celebrating all Daytime TV programming (7am to 7pm) LocoDistro was selected by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences to take over the Daytime Emmy Awards and help reinvent the classic Emmy brand (as well as secure both financing and distribution for the Academy).
Not only was this achieved, but Gabriel Gornell was the youngest Executive Producer of any Emmys Award Show.
As programming trends continued to shift from daytime dramas (soaps) to more varied daytime content—award categories like Cooking Shows and Children’s Shows were included in the telecast for the very first time.
Musical highlights included the duet with Anderson Cooper and Oscar the Grouch. Congrats to all the Emmy nominees and winners!
