Kassie DePaiva deserves Best Actress (: Worst omissions: Judi Evans and Billy Flynn and Casey Moss ):

Most of our Goldies winners ( have been nominated – except for Christopher Sean and Judi Evans – Kassie DePaiva, Justin Hartley, Nicholas Bechtel and Brooklyn Rae Silzer. Altho we chose Days for Best Writing, B&B was our pick for Best Directing. Days was our winner for Best Drama Series. Eileen Davidson won for Guest Performer for Days.

I really want Kassie to win the most!

Supporting Actress is a four way tie for me without Judi Evans as a nominee. Jessica Collins, Peggy McCay, Melissa Reeves or Lauralee Bell all would be worthwhile winners.

Supporting Actor is the worst category for me this year, only Jacob Young really deserves to win imo. Bryan Datillo didn’t submit, but I wish Christopher Sean had been nominated.


Laura’s speech still gives me goosebumps. #HellYeah she deserves many more. Love she walked in wondering here her beer or wine was!! Love lost meting to Kassie I hope she wins




I was going to call in.
I thought better of it– I might become overly enthusiastic !

I mean, imagine;

me– Hi Michel! this is Su0000 !!

michael– (silently) 0ohh dear lord it’s her, it’s that Su000 !

me– I have a lot to say! / michael to himself ”what do I do now?

Anyways.. I enjoyed the show, as always !
thanks for you .. 🙂


I liked all the guests, but- my favs of the evening;

Dee Wallace
Bryan Craig
Maura West

When actors of BB and Days were on, I went to the kitchen, bathroom and took garbage out etc, because I am not familiar with any of them (only watch GH/Y&R..

oh the trivia questions — I didn’t get one right LOL

Michael Fairman really brings us the best (he has a great job!) It was fun ..


Su…I’m with you on your favs. Loved Dee. Wish she had had more time in GH. Little bias in Laura’s part when it came to talking with Bryan?…but well deserved. Can just see Maura, Laura and “some of the girls” at a pool party comparing notes…with the beverage MF didn’t supply. Did listen to the father of Kayla from B&B. He had a lot to say, and really moved the bar up in his role.


I caught the tail end of the show… Bryan Craig : Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series.

he deserves to win… not matter how much the Corinthos clan is featured… bar none… it’s Morgan who stands out… his character has the most ENERGY

I loved the scene he submitted… when he and Kiki left Port Charles and went to … what he told Kiki… was the family cabin…but turned out it wasn’t… he worked it…
his manic on the edge cliff hanger was magic to watch… he nailed it without OVER THE TOP


Dear Michael – will you kindly provide us with the Emmy reels submitted, like you did last year? I greatly enjoyed them – and as you know, it’s all in the reel!


Ditto ! Please Mr. Please

“…will you kindly provide us with the Emmy reels submitted, “


Congratulations on a wonderful job. It is easy to get jaded in our respective communities of work, but after listening to you, Laura and David, it made me appreciate the love all of you have for the soap opera genre.

It was so great to hear the wonderful respect all of the actors have for the soap community. Jacob Young, Tyler Christopher, Maura West, Melissa Reeves, Dee Wallace, Lindsey Godfey and Bryan Craig were so appreciative not only for their nominations, but for all of the hard work that goes into producing five shows a week, 52 weeks a year. I loved Tyler’s story of how much he learned from Tony Geary, Genie Francis and even a young Jonathan Jackson.

Most importantly, it was refreshing to hear what a great cheerleader Laura Wright was for so many of the female nominees. We live in a world that constantly pits women against each other, yet Laura was so excited for Maura West, Finola, Missy Reeves and the incredible Kassie D. She was so nurturing and sincerely thrilled for Brooklyn and Bryan. She couldn’t have been more wonderful and lovely.

Beautiful job, Michael. We appreciate your hard work in keeping the soap community alive and keeping the fans informed.


I couldn’t agree more with this post!


Agree with your comments. Laura and MF really brought their “awards” to life.


Michael, what a great Soap Nation episode! You and Laura should be the host of the DT Emmys! Speaking of, if the awards are not broadcasted, I’m hoping you do a post Emmy show here and interview as many winners as you can. [You and Laura!]


Great episode

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
