And we’re off!  The 40th annual Daytime Emmy Awards kicks-off next month with some very crucial deadlines as laid out today by The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Senior Executive Director, David Michaels!

In addition to the key dates for performers and judging below, there are a few changes in the rules for Daytime performers.  In the Pre-Nomination acting categories, performers are now allowed to submit a three minute scene, as opposed to last year’s which was only two minutes.  Those submissions this year will be pre-screened to ensure they don’t exceed this time limit.

Also, The New Approaches category had been divided up into two:  One category titled:  New Approaches- Enhancement To A Daytime Program or Series will be for material that enhances and supports existing broadcast programming and the second category, New Approaches- Original Daytime Program or Series, will be for original new product. Both categories encompass all Daytime genres.   Here are the key dates For Emmy 40!

January 18, 2013: Deadline for Drama Performer Judges to Register
January 25, 2013: Deadline for Drama Performer Pre-Nom Clip Submissions
January 30, 2013: Deadline for all other Judges to Register
January 30, 2013:  Drama Performer Pre-Nomination Judging Begins

Who really cares if the rules change….OLTL won’t be among one of the shows listed, so it doesn’t even matter. They got ripped off last year, and I have completely lost all faith in the Daytime Emmy’s…just a pointless award show.

I agree with you 100 percent! OLTL was the best soap for many years, it was never given the respect it deserved from ABC . It’s stars never appeared on any “Dancing” or talk shows. Never any night time promotions the NBC does for DOOL.

Now GH has the OLTL team over there making it a great show again. They reference OLTL often and that is a gift to all of us fans.

Torrey

Totally agree with you….OLTL was always treated like the red-headed step child. ABC never did promotions for the show, and never shown the light on the best show on their network. It was always about AMC & GH…no matter how poorly they were performing. And now that the OLTL characters are on GH making it tolerable to watch, I find myself not even tuning in because I’d rather see them all in LLanview then have a few of them in Port Charles. It’s just not the same for me. I miss Viki, Clint, Dorian, and all of my other LLanview… Read more »

I want Sharon Case to win for her role again. She was off the chain this year and took quit a beating for her role controversy but she handled it like a star!

Torrey
Guest
Torrey

Sharon Case won’t win unless she is in the Outstanding Supporting Actress Category….because you know they are going to give that to Susan Flannery from B&B. I believe that Sharon did an excellent job with her storyline, but if I know the Emmy’s they will give it to Susan. (granted she did do a wonderful job with her material.) The Emmy’s have become a place where it’s the same people nominated and winning every year. Has become a complete snooze fest

I second that Sharon Case for best actress. If she don’t win i’ll never watch it again

I mean listen to us, trying to have faith in the Daytime Emmy’s when they will forever go down in history as making the biggest mistake in daytime history……not giving Trevor St. John the Emmy for Outstanding Leading Actor in 2009 when he was doing the Execution scenes. That will forever go down in history as one of the BEST Episodes and THE BEST Performances in Daytime!!

Correction….it was in 2006…but still the Emmy’s made a mistake…LOL

OLTL Can Be Nominated As It Was On Part Of Jan 2012

The Emmy’s are a joke- nominations are based on a 3 minute clip- how can you judge an actors overall performance for the year based on that. One actor can have a one good scene the whole year and they win. I stopped watching Daytime and Nighttime Emmy’s a long time ago- I used to like SOD awards at least that was based on the fans who actually watch the shows unlike most of the members of the Emmy committee.

Torrey
Guest
Torrey

Exactly!!! The SOD awards was a more accurate Awards Ceremony….Because the people who spend the entire year watching, make the decisions.

Soapluv
Guest
Soapluv

That’s just the point…no one is attempting to judge overall performance for the entire year. It’s one pivotal scene, submitted by the actor.

If Sharon Case doesn’t get an nomination this year, then I will have lost all hope with the Emmys

Soapluv

That’s impossible. There is no such thing as winning for a specific show. It’s winner take all, across all four shows for any given category.

I hope Sharon who plays Sharon Newman wins the best actress for the second time. She deserves it <3

Sharon Case for Young and The Restless best actress 🙂

He deserves it !

OLTL should win some awards which they got cheated out of last time..This is their last
time for the Daytime Emmy Awards…………………..They passed by Erika Slezak & others…………………………………..

Soapluv

You mean you want OLTL to get a sympathy win? Uh uh. The old version is done but they have new hope for online recognition with new writers and the re-boot. They have a lot of support.

I am a die-hard OLTL fan ! It was and is still my #1 soap of all time. No sympathy vote at all. OLTL deserves to WIN hands down! In my book OLTL
is the best soap! Hope we don’t have to pay to watch OLTL on line w/Hulu. I don’t want to pay to watch my soaps. My cable bill is high plus I pay for phone& computer.

susan M.

And OLTL was omitted from a lot of the catagories also!!!!!!!! They deserve to be nominated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In all catagories that matter. OLTL was my favorite soap of all time…………………….

Derrick

Sharon Case for Lead Actress!
B&B better submit Stephanie’s death! That will win them Best Drama!

Guest

Those are the two I would pick. I thought Sharon Case then I saw the ending with Brooke and Stephanie’s death and said that’s the two leading wins. But Case did a great job the entire year so she deserves it more

Would be nice if OLTL received a Best Drama nod for the two weeks it was on in Jan 2012. Doubt there will be any acting nods since there wasn’t too much dramatic acting going on at that point – after all, we were being set-up for the great ProspectPark con. But we’ll see. Gosh I wonder have many emmy noms the Chew, The Revolution and Katie get this year; all of them Outstanding Puke!!!!!!!!!

Molly Burnett and Eileen Davidson should win something for DOOL, and Ari Zucker.

I only hope the Academy can restore integrity and lustre to these honors as they once had. The recent Vegas, CBS, and HLN efforts were less than grand. These awards really used to be lovely affairs, ones fans looked forward to. Now with only four series in daytime drama categories, unless they include little-seen web series, I am not sure what to expect. Even winners are not feted in the after glow and are not easily remembered. Too early to do any predictions now.

from the talks of this past year’s award show, OLTL could enter for this next year’s awards since they were still on the air 2012… I do hope they get some awards AND a very nice tribute that was sorely missing from this year’s show.

Christy
Guest

also – they need another category:

WORST New Approaches- Enhancement To A Daytime Program or Series for The Replacement, oops, no it was Repulsive, no wait it was forgetable…. it was, um, the Revolution!

give a group award to the dumbest tv executives in regards to daytime soaps… gee, wonder who would win that?! ha!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
