Like many of the soap operas that dominated daytime television in decades past, the Daytime Emmy Awards are being shoved aside by broadcast television.

With just two weeks left before the 41stAnnual Daytime Emmy Awards, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced Thursday that the ceremony has failed to find a broadcast host and will air exclusively online, reports Deadline. Those looking to watch the biggest awards for soap operas and daytime talk shows will have to settle for firing up their computers and pointing their browsers to DaytimeEmmys.com to see trophies handed out on June 22 at 5/4c.

"We are confident that the expert team we've brought on will flawlessly execute an evening that celebrates the outstanding talent being honored and allows fans to be a part of the action," National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman Malachy Wienges said in a statement.

The previous two Daytime Emmy Awards ceremonies were broadcast on HLN.
