It's like a soap opera storyline: a masked intruder tries to off a twentysomething man and woman. That was the plotline of this year's Daytime Emmys ceremony as NATAS reportedly wanted to boot the Outstanding Younger Actor and Actress categories from the awards ceremony.

In a move that can only be described as a head-scratcher, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences reportedly planned to boot the Outstanding Younger Actor and Actress categories from the Daytime Emmy ceremony, which will be held June 23 in Los Angeles. The awards for those two categories would have been handed out in the Creative Arts ceremony the week before the main ceremony.

Though NATAS never officially made an announcement about any such change, as the rumor made the rounds, backlash was almost immediate. At least one nominated performer indicated that their family had already made travel arrangements to attend the Emmy ceremony -- and that making the last-minute change would mean that they'd miss the ceremony.

Additionally, other performers stated that they would not attend the main Emmy ceremony if the Younger Actor and Actress categories were not part of the show.

NATAS, as a result, has moved the Younger Actor and Actress categories back into the June 23 event.

The HLN network will televise the Daytime Emmys on June 23 beginning at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific. It will mark the first time that the ceremony has been aired lived in all time zones.
