“Red Table Talk” and “Red Table Talk: The Estefans” are also recognized among this year’s nominees for Emmy honors.

The 2021 daytime Emmy Award nominations are officially here, and they highlight some major talents, listing still-popular former First Lady Michelle Obama, talk show hostess Tamron Hall and a host of others.

Set to air June 25 on CBS and Paramount Plus, The 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are set to celebrate the best and most successful during-daylight television offerings. From talk shows and game shows to soap operas and legal courtroom episodes, the picks for possible daytime Emmys are stacked. Highlights from this year’s nominees include Obama’s Creators for Change on Girls’ Education with Michelle Obama; Hall, for her hosting of Tamron Hall, which got its own Outstanding Informative Talk Show nomination, plus game-show helmers Steve Harvey, Wayne Brady and Alfonso Ribeiro.

Hall’s morning talk show, Tamron Hall, has been a ratings hit for Disney. Showing solid ratings growth deep into its second season, the program seems to be hitting its stride, and the Daytime Emmys have certainly recognized that. It won Hall the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host last year, for which she is nominated again.

Obama’s YouTube docuseries Creators for Change on Girls’ Education with Michelle Obama featured celebrities and YouTube creators sitting down to discuss the importance of women’s education across the globe. With appearances from celebrities like Lana Condor, Ngô Thanh Vân and Julia Roberts, the series premiered last March.

Also nominated for Daytime Emmys are both iterations of the hit Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk. Featuring frank conversations with actress Jada Pinkett Smith and her family, the show has been extremely successful for the streamer, leading to a spin-off with Gloria Estefan‘s family entitled Red Table Talk: The Estefans. Both are nominated for Outstanding Informative Talk Show.
