After months of speculation, a deal has finally been reached and announced officially today by The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) that the Daytime Emmys have a television home for this year’s telecast and it will be once again cable channel outlet, HLN!

In addition, this year the ceremonies will once again be held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel and circle the date of Sunday, June 16th 8-10PM ET/PT!  Gabriel Cornell is once again back on board as the show’s executive producer from LocoDistro!

Here now is the official press release! “HLN returns as the host network of the annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards show, now in its 40th year, presented live from The Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 16, 8-10 p.m., ET/PT, it was announced by Scot Safon, Executive Vice President & General Manager, HLN, and Malachy Wienges, Chairman, National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

“Last year, HLN’s first-ever presentation of the Daytime Emmy Awards was the #1 most-watched, regularly-scheduled non-news broadcast in the network’s history, and received terrific viewer feedback both on-air and online.   Our audiences thanked us for tapping into that vital part of American pop culture,” said Safon. “HLN is the news channel that focuses on stories at the forefront of the American conversation, and daytime programming often tackles those same themes and stories. We are so happy to again present the program that honors the best work in daytime.”

“The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is very excited to partner again this year with HLN and LocoDistro on our 40th anniversary of the Daytime Emmy Awards,” said Wienges.  “The outcome of this partnership will be a creative show honoring all the genres that make Daytime Television part of our daily lives.”   Wienges also noted that Game Show Icon Monty Hall and Legendary Producer Bob Stewart with be honored with this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Viewer integration will be part of the presentation with featured segments on air and online at HLNtv.com. Presenters and additional program information will be announced within a few weeks. The 40th annual daytime Emmy Awards is produced by LocoDistro; Gabriel Gornell is founder and the show’s executive producer.

“Daytime TV doesn’t have fans—it has personal relationships between hosts and viewers five days a week.  And because of this five days-a-week relationship, there is no stronger connection with audiences in all of entertainment—And we’re going to celebrate 40 years of it from Talk Shows to Soaps,” said Gornell.

So Daytime Emmy fans, are you happy that the Emmys have a television home? And the good news is… it’s not three weeks before the airdate like last year, which gives the show more time to plan!  Weigh-in!

Happy they found a televised home, now if we can just get them to show clips of each nominee in the acting categories, that would be something. Daytime has enjoyed an incredible resurgence – in the wake of recent anniversaries of Y&R and GH – and I’m hoping that they will finally get their due this June! Thank you HLN!

Why not the actress who plays Chelsea…she plays the best charcter on the whole show and most fans love Chelsea and hope she ends up with Adam. Hope Sharon Case is written off the show…too boring for me, and she overacts! lol, im only kidding! Sharon Case is terrific!

It’s great that there is a home for the Daytime Emmy Awards – but what I really want to know is, going forward, will OLTL and AMC actors, directors, writers, etc. be eligible for inclusion as Emmy nominees/winners? Anyone know?

The only news to trump this announcement this year is the rebooting of AMC and OLTL! Was pleasantly surprised by how good a job HLN did last year. This is FABULOUS!

I’m glad, but I really don’t want to watch a lot of hoopla over talk shows and cooking shows, or game shows. Regardless of those shows being a part of daytime TV, the soaps are the ones that attract the viewers who are loyal. The soaps should be the focus of the telecast and they need to get the clips back along with the homage to those who have passed on. That would make me the happiest. Hopefully, HLN is listening and reading what the fans have say. If they do and they get it right, their ratings will soar!

HLN did a good job considering last year’s ceremonies were thrown together at the last minute. The very basic approach was better than the sultifyingly dumb Las Vegas shows of recent years. I do hope the 2013 ceremony will be classy, elegant, and will feature some clips, tributes, and stars. I hope more of the daytine community will be in place. The Emmys are special and there have been efforts to correct glitches in the nominations/voting process and tio give dramas their due in the spotlight.

Here’s hoping!

I hope it’s better than last year. It was not very good, you could tell it was put together fast. I hope the same people don’t win this year, I’m tired of seeing the same OLD FACES, FROM THE SAME SHOWS! Let’s see some new people win for a change.

Hearher Tom once again and this time Kelly Lang for her great performances this year with Susan Flannery! Also think Peter Bergman from Y&R for best male and GH no doubt for best soap!

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?
