CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Playbill reports:

Sorry, musical theatre stars: It just became harder to get that “E” notch in your EGOT belt. In a recent series of eligibility clarifications and rule changes, the National Academy of TV Arts and Sciences revealed that the Outstanding Musical Performance in a Daytime Program category at the Daytime Emmy Awards would be eliminated.

The award was first presented in 2016 (going to Rachel Platten’s performance of “Fight Song” on Good Morning America) and has gone to the cast of a Broadway musical every subsequent year—all for performing on The Today Show.

The cast of The Color Purple won in 2017, with Dear Evan Hansen and The Band’s Visit taking home the awards in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
