Days of Our Lives: Find Out The Why Grace Made Such A Shocking Move
The creators of the 2020 Daytime Emmy Awards combined the Outstanding Younger Actor and Outstanding Younger Actress categories to form a new, gender-neutral category named Outstanding Younger Performer. The age limit for this category was previously set at 25, but it was lowered to 21 for the 2021 awards and further to 18 for this year’s ceremony. While Grace didn’t provide specifics about the “huge misunderstanding,” it appears that she was over the age limit. Moreover, neither she nor Days realized that submitting her in the Younger Performer category was against the rules.
It’s surprising that the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences didn’t catch this error when they included her in the list of nominees. Therefore, Grace decided to rescind her nomination to be fair to everyone else. The category only had four nominees, to begin with, and now there are only three vying for the trophy on Emmy night. They are Cary Christopher (Thomas, Days), Eden McCoy (Josslyn, GH), and Henry Joseph Samiri (Douglas, B&B).
This incident serves as a reminder to everyone to pay close attention to the rules and regulations of any show. It is essential to understand the requirements and eligibility criteria before submitting an entry to avoid any misunderstandings or disappointment. So stay tuned to TV Season & Spoilers to know who takes the trophy home! Also, don’t forget to be up-to-date with the ongoing Days of Our Lives drama.
