Happy for all the One Life and All My Children nods. I’m ecstatic over Jason Thompson and Chandler Massey! Kimberly McCullough was robbed!

Would it have killed them to add one more soap to the outstanding drama? What a disappointment, Hope erika slezak wins best actress, I feel once again kassie depava was snubbed, Good for Robert woods. I’m not very happy that one life to live was thrown out of the running once again, but if any soap has to win let it be general hospital or all my children, I love my abc soaps.

Its sad, I dont understand it, There’s no more chances for one life to live it was the best soap no other will take its place, not for me. I am happy I get to see a few of my favorites at general hospital, but It will never be the same.

What happen to OLTL for outstanding drama series?????? They are not on that list..They should be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want Erika Slezak to win, Robert s. Woods etc… They deserve to win outstanding Drama.. Why were they over looked on that one?????? Best original song for a drama series should go to: One Life: ONE LIFE TO LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OLTL hopefully will win a lot of awards..It would be THE LAST HURAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go out with a BANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Cross your fingers…They deserve it & more…The best soap was OLTL for me & will alway’s be #1 in my book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you believe this? I cant either, makes no sense to me that one life to live was once again dismissed but all my children gets on the list of best daytime drama, Are we all watching the same shows? I hope every award that one life to live is up against they win, My fingers are crossed to,One life to live wins for my best soap ever.

It’s not the last hurrah for oltl. They will be eligible next year as the show went off the air in 2012! Which is why amc got the nod for best show they went off on 2011. Hopefully next year will belong to oltl.

I agree with you Barbara t………………….TOTALLY!!!!!!!!!!!! I prefer OLTL over AMC any day… OLTL was alway’s my favorite soap even when I watched AMC…OLTL alway’s had something special the other soaps didn’t have…OLTL always caught my attention more than AMC….I would watch them both but,liked OLTL better……………………..So I will be crossing my fingers for OLTL….I support OLTL on the emmy awards all the way… I am a loyal fan of OLTL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cant stand those nasty Kardashians either, What a waste that whole family is. And you are right one life to live never got the recognition it deserves, I dont understand how year after year they get snubbed and those so called judges couldnt give them anything for there last time at the emmys, Something is wrong with those judges they don’t know a class act when they see it. All my children gets picked and one life to live doesnt, Makes no sense

Don’t see none of the DAYS actress winning Younger Actress!!! Very happy for Y&R but where is Melody Thomas Scott for Lead Actress?????

OK then… I am sure this message board will be busy today! So much to consider and to discuss. I shall keep it positive but must begin with my sad note. BIGGEST SNUB!!! … ONE LIFE TO LIVE is not included in the Outstanding Drama or Outstanding Writing Team categories. Really? Easily OLTL was among the best of the year, delivering strong stories and remaining true to characters in the face of cancellation. That OLTL is not honored is a genuine disappointment. I would have liked to have seen OLTL actors Jerry van Dorn, Austin Williams, Kassie dePaiva, Trevor St.… Read more »

Why isn’t Don Diamont nominated???? What gives?

Wasn’t happy with the prenoms since James Scott and Alison Sweeney and the always overlooked Katherine Kelly Lang weren’t on there. I don’t know, it just seems like the Emmys are kinda a joke.

I hope Days wins Best Soap. And Chandler Massey should win this year and next.

I’ve always said… Blah! Blah! Blah! DAYS! over the years… has always been overlooked, snubbed… not given the due respect. 15 nods. sure there are 4 soaps left… Nevertheless….

EJ and Sammi… Acting at their best… and giving us fans tour de force, quality stuff. wouldn’t it be great if Kristen/Susan was welcomed back.

The storyline with Gabi and Chad is really stupid and needs to end. Chad needs to get back with the DiMeras. He was interesting then. Ian also needs to go.

I sometimes wonder if I live in a world by myself. The lack of nominations for OLTL absolutely floors me. I watch every single other show daily & it just floors me. I am speechless now-trying to absorb this disappointing blow. DAYS best drama? No way. Ok show but not best anything this year. And I mean, really (sorry AMC fans-I was one for decades) AMC as best drama, but NOT OLTL?? AMC had gotten so bad they got themselves AND OLTL cancelled for God’s sake. Happy for GH but I just don’t get it.

Im still sitting here scratching my head wondering how all my children got best drama series and not one life to live, I watch all the abc soaps and by far One life to live was the best soap, best actors, best writing, Does not make sense, I will never understand how one life to live got snubbed for the final last time. I hope erika slezak and robert woods wins, and seriously who cares about best hair dresser I am so disappointed. other then erika and robert I hope general hospital wins the rest. My heart has been broken.

barbara t, i know it’s only your disappointment talking — and I share it; OLTL was robbed — but the hair and makeup people are creative people, too, as much as our actors. They deserve support from the fans as do out performers.

And sadly, it seems OLTL was left out of the hairstyling category, too.

Michael Logan of TV Guide wrote, “Chance of a nomination [for OLTL is] Excellent. This was stellar work done during extremely trying times. The work of champs.” Carolyn Hinsey said, “The real travesty is ‘One Life to Live’ not getting nominated in the best show or writing category. It was by far the best soap in 2011.” Critics and fans, as attested by the increase in ratings, know the last year of OLTL was exceptional. Why their incredible work did not translate into more nominations is mind-bogglingly incomprehensible and profoundly disappointing. So many other actors from OLTL should have been… Read more »

Absolutely STUNNED by the omission of OLTL in the best daytime drama category– WOW!!!!!!!! As a life-long soap opera fan (and CBS refugee), I was completely hooked on OLTL, especially in the past year, and I found nearly every episode to be “must see tv.” Did the producers not submit a nomination package? If they did, what did they submit? I am shocked, saddened, and stunned by the lack of tribute and recognition to this fabulous soap… Wow…

As i first glanced over the list, I was certain that Vincent Irizarry would get a nomination. Imagine my disappointment when his name was not listed.There are some excellent lead actors nominated, but Vincent Irizarry has been one of the best actors on daytime.He plays DR David Hayward with the contradiction of his intelligence, strength, self reliance, lonliness and vunerability all in the same moment of a scene. The subtle accents that he plays in the role are masterful. He is master actor who plays this multi-layered character brilliantly. Wish the best to all the nominees. And to the entire… Read more »

Well said… i’ve always thought well of Vincent Irizarry… i consider him to be one of a very few Shakespears… of soaps… multi-faceted actor… he was brilliant… as Dr. Haward… especially in all his scenes with blind Angie… and his acceptance of his daughter being gay with bianca… he was that love to hate.. and you ached for his happiness…. his nuanced skill, without saying a word… portrayal. TOP DRAWER.

i can’t discount… Maurice Benard and Anthony Geary… having said this… you’d expect them EVERY YEAR… but, it leaves out talent… from the other shows that deserve recognition.

OLTL Writing didn’t get a nod??? What an insult to Ron! I’m watching Y&R, B&B, and GH now, but I’m not seeing how most of these nominees could get the nod over several AMC and OLTL actors who were left out. When will fans learn that these awards are a joke, don’t reflect reality, and have nothing to do with anything that resonates with us? Disgusted.

david
Guest

The Shane Morasco bullying, the two Todds, and how many other storylines of OLTL were obviously superior to the typical fare of AMC or Days or the mob wars of GH. That sums it up well: the Emmys are a joke, bearing no relationship to reality, and it’s disgusting.

Guys, I know how you feel it is all about picking the right reel they do not base it on a body of work, lets stop just a minute and think about this B&B won what 2 or 3 years in a row they picked as far as i was concerned infomercials but everybody praised the one or two weeks of story does not a soap opera make, OLTL screwed up when I read what they submitted I was mad. They over all were the better soap they just picked the wrong reel and so it goes.

One Life didn’t get a nom for Best Drama NOR Writing? What are these people on? More proof what the Emmys can be, so unbalanced and not always fair.

But so glad Crystal Chappell got nominated, take that Days! And so glad that Erika (Vicky from OLTL) got one last nomination as Vicky!

And so glad to see Chandler Massey get nominated as Will! He deserves to win that.

Given what has happened to the best written, more sophisticated soaps (OTLT, As the World Turns, Guiding Light), who actually could believe the daytime Emmys would recognize top talent? Last year’s telecast was unwatchable and beyond embarrassing.

It’s all TV industry politics at its worse. Nice to see Erica and Robert get noms, but OLTL was deliberately snubbed big-time, in the same way that they were booted off the air.

This list is bullshit!!! OLTL was the best soap of the year, and they didn’t get a nod!! I don’t give a damn if the ceremony is broadcast or not, because they snubbed way too many OLTL’ers……How in the hell did AMC even get mentioned for Outstanding Drama? It was by far the worst soap. The Daytime Emmy’s are crap! They never get it right, and I’m tired of the whole production.

As a matter of fact, after seeing this list, I’m done with soaps all together….since OLTL is not coming back, and they can’t ever seem to get the damn respect that they deserve, I’m DONE!!

It doesn’t surprise me that OLTL was left out of best daytime drama yet again. Why break tradition. This is how this OLTL has been treated for years. It’s a disgrace. If the emmy people cared about this genre, why not just nominate the last six remaining soaps. These people do amazing work. At least give the cast of OLTL the recognition of being nominated in their final year. Daytime viewers know OLTL was hands down the BEST DAYTIME DRAMA IN 2011. And whoever wins the award, they should mention the excepitional work OLTL did this year. YOU HEARD ME:… Read more »

Dan
Guest

One thing for people to remember. These awards aren’t judged on an entire year of a show. They’re judged on two episodes that the producers of each show choose to submit. So while I understand people’s frustration when they say that OLTL had a great year, that’s really irrelevant to this situation, since it’s based on two episodes. We don’t know what episodes OLTL submitted. Perhaps they didn’t submit Emmy worthy episodes?

Please don’t take my head off for saying that. But it’s something to think about.

I think the judges should have to watch the soaps they judge 5 days a week for a year, any soap can have 1 good scene then the rest of the year it sucks, So I don’t agree with the 2 reels they turn in, it should be a year round devotion to the programs their judging, One life to live should have been on the best drama series and best writing, Something is wrong here and this has been going on for several years. and it is something us fans have been thinking about, and now its to late… Read more »

In the past, One Life to Live was passed over for many well deserved awards. One Life to Live was treated like the unwanted and ugly step child! at ABC! Even with the series days numbered, audience viewership was on the rise! This show deserves to win. The writing and acting teams are excellent. In my opinion, OLTL deserves not only the nomination but the win for Best Drama. None of the remaining soaps measure up or deserve the win. I have never been a fan of award shows, they always seem fixed to me. The nominations this year affirm… Read more »

By Michael Logan of TV Guide wrote, “One Life to Live: The show did a curious (and probably savvy) thing by asking the judges to view its two submissions out of sequence. First up is the hour from last December where everyone in Llanview (even badass Clint) is suddenly nuts about the TV soap Fraternity Row, an outta-nowhere twist that gave OLTL a chance to lovingly spoof our obsession with soaps and skewer the foolish suits at ABC for destroying them.

David, It makes no sense that our soap One life to live was once again left out of the best drama series.

and PS) The only good thing about any of the other soaps, was finding all of the actors from GH, AMC, oltl on them…it was strange…but it was the only good part about them…….The quality of the actors from OLTL, and GH and AMC imo, remain so well ABOVE all others..just my opinion..they just are top notch..LOVE THEM.

I read from T V. Buzz the msn blog on the computer that about (S Lucci) her former show AMC may take outstanding Drama series w/ sentimental vote..But it has to beat out Days of Our Lives and GH……………. I don’t think AMC will win.. That’s what I think…OLTL wasn’t nominated so I think GH will win outstanding Drama Series………I prefer OLTL of course but it was over looked in this category……….

Michael Logan for years has been an astute obersevrer and chronicler of the soap industry. We are blessed to have our Michaels (including our Fairman!) and a few others who dearly love the genre to regard it with respect and a critical eye for its continued improvement.

Sadly, Michael Logan apparently is not on the judging panel.

OLTL deserved the nomination for Outstanding Drama and Writing Team. Everyone who is in the know knows that. Thanks to Michael Logan for these words. And to Michael Fairman for his excellent interview with OLTL’s acting leader, Erika Slezak.

So much for the changes they’ve made being better and levelling the playing field so-to-speak. Yet again Melody Thomas Scott who turned in perfect performances EVERY SINGLE show this year got snubbed again! These awards should be about SUBSTANCE and TALENT, a person’s BODY OF WORK, not just a NAME on a card or a familiar face! These awards continue to be a joke, a total farce and utterly disgraceful because of the politics that continue to plague them! Melody Thomas Scott DESERVED to win the Emmy for Best Lead Actress, instead she was shut out yet again! I am… Read more »

Poor OLTL….again gets treated like second class when it deserved so much more recognition. Really, how could DOOL possibly been considered over OLTL?

Happy for Erika Slezak, Bob Woods,Eddie Alderson but disappointed that so many GH actors in supporting …how is that balanced?

Kristen Alderson has never been nominated….that boggles the mind. What extraordinary work did Christel Khalil do that got her a nomination?

I can only hold out hope that next year OLTL gets to sweep the nominations……assuming, of course there is even a daytime emmy around.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
