The 39th Annual Daytime Emmys have come and gone, and in the end it was a big night for General Hospital picking up their record eleventh win for Outstanding Drama Series and taking home five Daytime Emmys on the HLN telecast. The ABC soap was honored with several other major awards including: Anthony Geary for Outstanding Lead Actor for a record breaking seventh time for his role as Luke Spencer, Jonathan Jackson for his fifth overall Daytime Emmy, this one for the second year in a row for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, and Nancy Lee Grahn for her portrayal of Alexis Davis  for Outstanding Supporting Actress.  This was Nancy’s second Supporting Actress award, having previously won for her work on Santa Barbara.  She was not present on Emmy night.  GH’s Directing Team also picked up the prize for director William Ludel’s innovative “Luke’s Intervention” episode.

DAYS Chandler Massey, took home the Younger Actor in a Drama Series for his stellar performance in Will’s coming out story, while Christel Khalil of The Young and the Restless finally nabbed her elusive Younger Actress Emmy in her fourth nomination. And in the very tough Lead Actress category, another historic Emmy first occurred. The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom, as Katie Logan Spencer, won for the first time in the category, and is now the only daytime performer to have won in the Younger, Supporting, and Lead Actress categories. Finally, in the surprise of the night, the writing team of Days of our Lives won for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series.

On-Air On-Soaps was backstage in the One-On-One press room area where we were able to interview and spend some private time with the winners. We got their initial reactions, posed some questions and shared in their jubilation, just moments after their names were called and they walked away with the prestigious gold statuette. Check out our chats in the video gallery with Anthony Geary, Heather Tom, Jonathan Jackson, Chandler Massey, Christel Khail, and members of the DAYS writing team. We also had an opportunity to talk with Todd Newton, who picked up the Emmy for the first time for Outstanding Game Show Host, for Family Game Night, and Bobby Flay who won for Outstanding Culinary Program for Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addiction. In addition to the winners, several Emmy presenters and special guests stopped by the One-On-One Area to chat with On-Air On-Soaps including All My Children soap icon, Susan Lucci and another icon, The View’s Barbara Walters who was with Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient Bill Geddie. And what can we say could top that? Well, our fascinating interview with one of Jack Hanna’s formidable and incredible animals, a porcupine who seem to make his presence known to all the crews in the press area!

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.
