The 48th annual daytime emmy awards

Submissions for the 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards open in October 2020. The entry fees have not changed over the past 2 years, so we are keeping the sponsorship costs the exact same until the new fees (if any) come out. Gemelli Films will make up the difference of the sponsorship if someone is sponsored before the new rates are released.

There are several projects that will potentially qualify for the 2021 Daytime Emmy Awards, which is also why we are getting a jump on entries. (It is a LOT of work to get each entry done.) We will also have a lot more actors with the potential to be submitted, too.  Plus, this gives a longer chance for people to be sponsored.

Please take a look below and consider sponsoring someone for the 2021 Daytime Emmy Awards!
