The 49th Daytime Emmy Awards, presented by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), honored the best in U.S. daytime television programming in 2021. The award ceremony was held live on June 24, 2022, at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, California. The ceremony was broadcast in the U.S. on CBS and streamed on Paramount+. Nominations were announced on Thursday, May 5, 2022.
Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner, co-anchors of the syndicated entertainment newsmagazine Entertainment Tonight, hosted the ceremony for the first time.
In response to the growth of streaming television, this was the first year under a major realignment of the Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards, where the two ceremonies' scopes now revolve more around factors such as the themes, format, and style characteristics, instead of strictly dayparts.
In December 2021, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS) and the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced a major realignment of the Emmy Award ceremonies. This was in response to the growth of streaming television, which blurred the lines in determining which shows should fall under the Daytime or Primetime Emmys. The two ceremonies' scopes will now revolve around factors such as the themes and frequency of such programming, rather than strictly dayparts.
Among the major changes that will take effect at the 49th Daytime Emmy Awards in June 2022 and at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards in September 2022:
Categories for game shows and instructional programming will remain split this year between the Daytime and Primetime Emmys, with their realignment to be determined in 2023.
The maximum age limit for those eligible for Outstanding Younger Performer in a Drama Series has been lowered from 25 to 21 (it will be further lowered to 18 in 2023).
The nominations for both the 49th Daytime Emmy Awards and the Creative Arts & Lifestyle Daytime Emmy Awards were announced on May 5, 2022. Winners in each category are listed first, in boldface.
