2020 Daytime Emmys to go virtual on CBS due to the coronavirus pandemic

The coronavirus has changed yet another way that Hollywood is running in 2020, shifting the Daytime Emmys to a remote event for the first time ever to air on CBS.

The hosts of the network's daytime show “The Talk” — Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba and Marie Osmond — will preside over the two-hour telecast airing Friday on CBS.

The show was originally scheduled to take place at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium on June 12, but those plans were pushed back as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

While the presenters, hosts and winners will all attend remotely from their respective coronavirus quarantine locations, the show may end up reaching more eyes than ever in recent memory. The 47th annual awards are back on a broadcast network for the first time since 2011 after being relegated to cable or streaming.
