Frazier is a multi-faceted journalist, producer and entrepreneur who has interviewed Hollywood's biggest stars and traveled the world covering exclusive stories. Turner, who also hosts SECRET CELEBRITY RENOVATION on the Network, is an award-winning journalist, a regular contributor for CNN and made television history in 2021 when she became the first Black woman to host ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT in the show's 41-year history. Together, Frazier and Turner are the first Black duo to host an entertainment news show.
The Daytime Emmy Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in television programming and crafts since 1974, honoring work in a variety of categories, including daytime dramas, talk shows, instructional programming, hosting and legal/courtroom programs. In 2021, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and the Television Academy jointly announced plans to realign the Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards to be organized by content genre, as opposed to program airtime. In addition, in recognition of the marked increase in content and entries for children's programming, 2022 will mark the first annual Children's & Family Emmy Awards, with relevant categories separating from the Daytime Emmys into their own competition and ceremony.
A full list of nominees for the awards can be found here.
In addition, the Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmy ceremony will stream Saturday, June 18, (LIVE online, 9:00 PM, ET/6:00 PM, PT) at watch.TheEmmys.tv and via The Emmys apps for iOS, tvOS, Android, FireTV and Roku (full list at apps.theemmys.tv).
