39th Emmy – Winners & Press Room Video

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!

May Flights of Angels Wing You to Your Rest my Dear Friend. Your bigger than life, gregarious personality will leave a hole in our hearts forever. We are devastated-My great friend, co parent partner, and loving father to Kaya. That big belly laugh, bear hugs, bad puns, ability to harmonize to any song, great kitchen table singing-fests, and two steppin bad ass! “Johnny Numbers”, my All My Children soap stud, the great time keeper, Beatles fanatic ( I wish to God we could go back to “Yesterday”)… Kaya and I are beyond broken hearted, so stunned, sorry that my thoughts are a mess.
