Last night at the 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, the winners in the Daytime Drama categories and various other daytime programming categories were escorted from the stage through the press room, where they were greeted by photographers and journalists from across the globe. In addition, many of the soap star presenters also took some time and posed for some photos and chatted with the press corp.

On-Air On-Soaps put together a photo gallery of some backstage winning moments.  Who was not thrilled for GH’s Laura Wright’s first Lead Actress Emmy? Or, Jonathan Jackson’s win for this sensational performance as Lucky, in the scenes where he confronted Liz and Nik about their affair? In addition, B&B’s Scott Clifton finally shed his Susan Lucci-esque curse winning Younger Actor, and a surprised Heather Tom won for Supporting Actress from the same series!

The Bell family had a huge night! Brad Bell and The Bold and the Beautiful won their third Daytime Emmy in a row with their victory in Sin City for Drama Series and tied with Y&R for Directing Team. Brad’s sister-in-law, Y&R’s Maria Arena Bell, took home her first Emmy ever, for Y&R’s victory as Outstanding Writing Team.

After the jump view our Winners/Presenters gallery!

..Too bad they didn’t announce the lead actor category earlier. I guess they knew with those results, people would be switching channels real fast. It was terrible..not even clips from the hard work the actors were nominated for..a real slap in the face

James was robbed of the Emmy last night to MP, a guy who wasn’t even expected to be in the running as a serious winner. The whole show sucked and I should have known that once again NBC DOOL would be snubbed and the other soaps pimped. And what was with the two Emmy tie thing? Did they think if one winner won, they could piss off someone else? Doesn’t matter…in my eyes James WAS the winner not only this year, but the last. He deserved it on the merit he is the best daytime saop actor and makes gold into the sh*t he was given to work with. James was the WINNER

James indeed had the best reel. But I’m not surprised. The Emmys are all about politics. Hopefully next year he will be up for it again
, I watched all the clips and he deserved the win!!!! That really sucks James really did deserve it doesn’t these people understand that it takes real talent to turn crappy writing into gold like James has done

I’m a lapsed GH fan and while I didn’t appreciate the scene JJ won for I do think he is a good actor–he cries too much–sorry.
I love Y&R my fav soap and I really loved all their wins and they should have won best show but B&B is okay also.
My favorite win of the night Michael Park for Jack on ATWT!!!!

! am thrilled for Laura Wright and Jonathan Jackson. It was very cute and wonderful when Jonathan brought his two children on stage with him. I wonder what they were experiencing with Dad. I did not like the show because I felt I was at some fundraisers. What was that all about. This award show should have been about entertainment, and seeing stars, etc. But to ask for money on an award show is a no-no to me. Granted the charities all were deserving, but then have a show of their own. I think the fans were disappointed. There is a time and place for everything!…

Very happy to see Laura Wright and Jonathan Jackson win. I was also happy for Scott Clifton. Sorry that Lexi Ainsworth did not win, especially since her scenes were riveting, but I am sure she will have lots of sensational storylines to come. Very disappointed in the broadcast overall though, as it seemed more like a live advertisement for Las Vegas, as opposed to a celebration of daytime television. What happened to the days where we (the fans) were able to see snippets of the clips the stars entered, when their names were read during the nominations, as well as the clips from each of the top nominated shows? How do we expect to get more interest back into the soaps if we don’t take advantage of shows, such as the Daytime Emmys to showcase all the talent in our soaps? Congrats to all the winners!!!!

Next time they can held a marathon for all those fund raise projects they was showing all night. They should have focus only on the soaps. Glad that LW won the Emmy and I agree that JS should have won an emmy.

38th Annual daytime emmys awards were over all rush and somewhat boring. Bold and beautiful winning drama series was no shocker, michael park winning again left a sour taste in mouth, laura wright win for lead actress was awesome!, heather tom win was a shocker as well over many talented ladies(I love her anyway), johnthan jackson win I saw coming but I wish. Doug davidsion would have won, brittany allen beating lexi and emily was a huge slap in the face and scott cliftion win ov er chad duell and even days chamdler was a shocker, not really, days is always robbed!!!!!

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”

We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps.
