“I’ve been star-struck by the dynamic duo of Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes for decades,” said SVP, Daytime Emmy Awards, NATAS David Michaels.  “The scope of their work across the television, film and stage landscape is amazing.  Their continuing roles of almost 50 years on "Days of Our Lives," where they also met and married, is a Daytime story like no other.  Sid and Marty Krofft, our Daytime Creative Arts honorees, are masters of children’s television programming and have been part of my family viewing since the creation of "H.R. Pufnstuf, Sigmund & the Sea Monsters and Land Of The Lost. Their terrific variety programs such as "The Donny and Marie Series" on ABC and "Barbara Mandrell & the Mandrell Sisters" have only solidified the breadth of their talent across the television spectrum.”

The Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards and The Daytime Emmy Awards recognize outstanding achievement in all fields of daytime television and are presented to individuals and programs broadcast from 2:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. during the 2017 calendar year.
