Rowin Amone is vying for "Outstanding Lead Actress in a Digital Drama Series" for her portrayal of Ester in the four-time Emmy-nominated digital series King Ester on YouTube.

The digital acting categories will be announced on Sunday, July 19, in a separate virtual ceremony. Tune in to see if either of these actors will walk away as 2020 Daytime Emmy winners.
