41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards/Winners Press Room Video

The 41st Annual Daytime Emmys are in the record books… and when all was said and done it was The Young and the Restless that walked away with a record 9 Emmys for the 41-year old soap opera.  That number is combined from the live-streamed ceremonies on June 22nd and the Creative Arts Awards held two nights previously.

Y&R won gold for its popular departed star, Billy Miller in the Outstanding Lead Actor category for his performance of Billy Abbott following the on-screen death of little Delia!  In addition to Miller, his longtime scene partner, Amelia Heinle (Victoria) was awarded the Supporting Actress prize for her work in the same storyline!  Miller becomes the second youngest actor in Daytime Emmy history to win the Lead Actor prize, and it was his third overall, a nice capper on his career for his time spent in Genoa City!  Y&R also picked up wins for Outstanding Writing Team, Outstanding Drama Series, and for Outstanding Younger Actress winner, Hunter King (Summer)!  And at the Creative Arts ceremonies, wins in Lighting Direction, Costume Design and Technical Team.

Days of our Lives also had a very strong showing in the acting categories with Eileen Davidson finally winning her first Daytime Emmy for her delicious performance as Kristen DiMera in the Outstanding Lead Actress category.  Her scene partner last year, Eric Martsolf was also given the nod as the Outstanding Supporting Actor winner for his performance as Brady Black.   It should be noted that both Martsolf and Amelia Heinle were first time winners in their first nominations, which is often a rarity at the Daytime Emmys an in Hollywood for that matter!  And it was none other than Chandler Massey, who took home his third Daytime Emmy in a row for his performance as Will Horton.  Massey was fired from the show late last year and replaced by Guy Wilson.  Chandler was in attendance and seated in the back of the room and had the dubious honor of having the wrong clip shown during the Younger Actor nominee clip package of Guy Wilson, instead of his work!

On-Air On-Soaps was backstage in the One-On-One Winners Walk where we were able to interview and spend some private time with the night’s big winners right after they won the gold!  From their initial reactions to their victory, to sharing some heartfelt moments and kudos with each of them, to at times revealing to us never before heard Intel, the newly crowned Emmy champs were very excited indeed! Check our chats and special moments with 41st annual Daytime Emmy winners: Eileen Davidson, Billy Miller, Hunter King, Eric Martsolf, Amelia Heinle, Shelly Altman and the writing team of Y&R, Jill Farren Phelps (EP, Y&R), Jill Mitwell and the directing team of OLTL, the producers and the writer of Ellen, Extra’s Mario Lopez, and presenter Sharon Case of Y&R, and Venice the Series producer winners: Crystal Chappell, Katherine Kelly Lang, Hillary B.

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.

ATWT Favorite, Jon Hensley, Releases New Single ‘I See Heaven’

Former As the World Turns, and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Jon Hensley (Ex-Holden Snyder and Ex-Dr. Meade), has announced not only the launch of his new website, but his new single called “I See Heaven”.

According to Hensley, the new track is a 9/11 20th anniversary song.  Through the holiday season, Jon is noting that you can make donations in lieu of the song and he will take a portion of the proceeds and donate them to various 9/11 charities.

In his welcome note on his site, Jon shares: “Welcome to my site, I am very excited about my new project. Most of you might remember me as Holden, it’s been a long time since the good old days in Oakdale. Who knows maybe they bring them back some day. As the World Re-turns?  After the show did end in 2010, I slowly started getting back into music. I spent some time playing in Las Vegas and decided a year or so ago it was time to release my debut album. Over the last few years, I wrote many songs with my great friend and producer Alan Schwartz. And my 1st single, I See Heaven (911 20th anniversary song) is now available as a download. Sing Out Revolution, my title track which was inspired by the Tennessee Williams quote on my home page, is a revolution on love. I’m planning to release SOR by Xmas 2021. And the full record by early 2022. Join my mailer for updates and thanks for listening!”

So, excited to listen to more of Jon’s music? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
