Lawley’s nomination comes in spite of the fact that he was recently dropped by talent agency CAA after a video surfaced in which the social media star used the n-word. In total, Go90 secured nine Daytime Emmy nods: Six for Zac & Mia and three more for Relationship Status.

Another digital-native show that landed a big Daytime Emmy haul is EastSidersa drama created by Kit Williamson. Several months after arriving on Netflix, EastSiders secured six nominations.
