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

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

Charles

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

I just want to see Sharon Case win for Young and The Restless

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.

Sammy

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.

susan M.

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
Guest

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!!!!!!!!!

Sharon Newman will win. She was the most talked about and so diverse in her role awesome girl awesome

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.

Christy

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 Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Photo: JPi

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

Photo: JPI

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Photo: JPI

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.

So, what did you think of Kayla and Justin’s wedding and the fallout? Comment below.

DAYS Mary Beth Evans & Stephen Nichols with Guest Ron Carlivati Talk Stayla’s Greatest Hits & Approach To Scripts During COVID-19

To take a stroll down memory lane of reunions past, Mary Beth Evans along with her longtime on-screen scene partner and dear friend, Stephen Nichols, watched back key scenes from the history of Stayla and offered up a second viewing experience as they commented on the clips.

Later, Mary Beth and Stephen are joined by their surprise guest and it is revealed to be Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati!

Mary Beth and Stephen then chat with Ron about what changes is he having to make to scripts in the reality we all live in now, the coronavirus pandemic, and how he is taking in to account upcoming safety protocols that will need to be adhered to when Days goes back into production.

As of now, from an article in Deadline last Friday the NBC daytime drama series is aiming for a September 1st restart.

Watch Mary Beth, Stephen and Ron in part one and part two and part three of their discussion below.
