Recognize Daytime Emmys and Primetime Emmys equally.

Currently, on pages where the person (or show) has won (or been nominated for) a Primetime Emmy, it appears in their Awards section as: 

    "Won X Primetime Emmys" (On a computer) 
    "Won X Emmys" (On a mobile device, it seems like the "Primetime" is omitted) 
or even 
    "Emmy winner for Outstanding xxxxxxxxxxx" (On a mobile device if a person has only one one Primetime Emmy, again omitting "Primetime") 

But, currently, we're only doing that for PRIMETIME Emmys.  This request/suggestion is that we ALSO recognize DAYTIME Emmys in the same fashion.  

The only difference between the Primetime Emmys and the Daytime Emmys is the time of day that the show "premiered" in.  And, as we move more into the age of streaming media, many of the shows are opting to be considered for Daytime Emmys instead of Primetime Emmys. 

So, please make sure to recognize both Primetime Emmys and Daytime Emmys in the same, equal manner. 

(One additional thing to understand regarding Emmy awards is that, in addition to the Primetime Emmys and Daytime Emmys, there are also regional (or local) Emmys.  (They have these for News, Sports, etc.)  These are, by definition, not as major.  And, even the Emmy statue has a smaller base to signify as such.  (The Primetime Emmys and Daytime Emmys have the exact same award statue, awarded by The Television Academy and the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, respectively.)  So, there is no need to classify regional/local Emmys on the same level of recognition as the Primetime and Daytime Emmys.) 

p.s. - One particular example we wanted to share that illustrates the problem we're currently seeing was an instance we saw where a person has WON a Daytime Emmy and had been NOMINATED for three Primetime Emmys.  Even though this person is an Emmy Winner, their profile has their award section as: "Nominated for 3 Primetime Emmys.  Another 1 win."  This should read something to the effect of, "Won 1 Emmy.  Another 3 nominations."

Hi Marcus -

For further context, can you post the link to the name page for the individual you referenced who Won a Daytime Emmy and was nominated for three Primetime Emmy's?
