Daytime Emmy Awards Preview: No Pop Red Carpet Show, Special Awards for Sexcapade & Bitch Slap, Fans on Stage, Fan Presenter, Panel Playing 'Password'


Producer Michael Levitt has given TV Insider a preview of what to look forward to on April 26 when Tyra Banks hosts the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards at 8 p.m. ET on Pop. Below are some of the highlights:

* The ceremony, taking place on the Warner Bros. Studios lot in Burbank, will also be peppered with several special awards—voted on by the fans—including Most Shocking Sexcapade, Biggest Wedding Disaster, Favorite Villain, Most Romantic Duo, and Best Bitch Slap.  Vote here.

* 150 fans will be sitting right on the stage.

* One fan will be selected to present an award during the broadcast, alongside a big soap heartthrob.

* The annual Lifetime Achievement Emmy winner Betty White's favorite game show, Password (which was hosted by her late husband, Allen Ludden) will played live on stage by a panel of her famous friends.

* Pop is not producing a red carpet show.

* There is no live-stream deal in place at the moment.

Once again NATAS has opted for a "fun" ceremony instead of a more traditional classy event. Will it work this time? It's hard not to think about last year's "fun" addition of the "Social Media Ambassadors" hosting the red carpet, which turned out to be the biggest disaster in Daytime Emmys history.
