The Young and the Restless garnered three wins, General Hospital received 2 Emmy trophies and Days of our Lives was shut out!

Thank you for saying this, Tammy. And if not for Prospect, we would not have been delivered Billy Clyde’s swan song. He really was a brilliant character actor.

B&B’s stories might not be bold, but it is definitely beautiful– the sets, the costumes, the hair, the make up, the lighting, so I am not surprised it clean up in these awards. And since the public isn’t interested in watching these awards, those 1200 people were allowed to enjoy their evening in peace– hope they had a great time and congrats to all those who were honored for their hard work–as viewers we don’t often express our appreciation for those who work behind the scenes but they help make our shows what they are. Think about it, without them we would just be watching a bunch of naked actors standing in a dark barren studio. Okay, I know some of you wouldn’t mind the naked part, but without lighting we wouldn’t be able to see any of it. LOL.

Nearly every single one of my picks won. How awesome for all the well deserving winners. Nice to see AMC and OLTL recognized for groundbreaking creativity in the genre. And B&B. What’s to say? Talk about the most beautifully packaged show on daytime. Kudos to all.

You’d think they could read the handwriting on the wall. After all the uproar from the fans and the media coverage and the lack of success of the replacements, you’d think someone in charge over there would have the courage to say “We messed up. We’d better fix this.”

I think- once the ABC, Prospect Park lawsuit is settled, if good outcome PP they will launch the soaps, again.

Hopefully, but lawsuits usually drag on and on for years.
The longer it goes on, the less likely it will happen.
The shows have been declared dead before, and I do believe that there is a small possibility still.

Why are web series included? Shouldn’t they have their own awards? Webbies? Is not fair to network shows that spend countless amounts of money producing their shows and are exceptionally superior in all categories.

Mary SF

These awards are given by NAFAS which is like a union, only those who belong to this association can win the awards– it is for their members. This year NAFAS agreed to include their members whose work include shows that are shown on the web as well. It is a not a matter of where the show is seen, as long as their members have made it and fits the other criteria to be eligible.

Not every show on the web would meet those requirements or are members of NATAS so they have their own award system, but AMC and OLTL did and that is why they were included. In would be unfair of them to exclude members of their own association for an industry award just because it was not shown on a conventional network.

I think they did the right thing by making the amendment and allowing web series as long as they meet the other criteria as well. They did this with the night time Emmy awards too, to include shows shown on Netflix etc.

Ok, 1. The networks shows are obviously not “exceptionally superior in all categories” since the web series’ won in several categories. 2. Saying it’s “not fair to network shows that spend countless amounts of money producing their shows”. How is that not fair? How does that put the network shows at some unfair disadvantage? It’s the web shows that are at a disadvantage. The networks have the money and the already established power bases. If a web series wins under those circumstances then it is well deserved

Congratulations to OLTL and AMC .Well done in the technical categories and also in the acting.
However,the story-telling was just not on the same high level and the dedicated actors and the
ants the devoted viewers needed and deserved better writing.

OLTL/AMC were great online. More and more people are watching online. They were ahead of its time. Not counting on it, but it would be nice to have them both back where I can choose to watch when I want. Go hulu…

ITA w/you —the internet-WI-FI is the wave of the future & in a few years I see ALL PROGRAMMING going to the internet! Some ppl can’t accept that fact & can’t accept changes either! Wake up to those who are still watching cable on TV– this will be a thing of the past- as you will be watching via computers/internet and TV’s are already featuring WI-FI capabilities!

I am so tired of hearing ppl complain about OLTL & AMC being online and blaming PP for everything! PP tried to help the fans-& for that I applaud them! I am so very happy to see OLTL & AMC win the categories listed above! Irene- ITA w./you on the online venue of soaps! It is the WAVE OF THE FUTURE!! In a few years, I believe everything will be watched online & cable as we know it will be obsolete! Cable companies will all become 100% totally WI-FI internet based. We already have TV’S WITH INTERNET BUILT-IN- & HULU & other online programs! I also enjoyed watching my 2 soaps via HULU & watching on my time! It was so much more convenient & flexible watching it online & if they are revived I hope they come back on HULU!

Thank you Michael, for recognizing those of us behind the camera. As a a member of the award-winning music team behind “All My Children,” I was honored to be among so many talented and hard-working artists.

I, like so many ALL MY CHILDREN fans, was so elated to have the show back, only to see it not flourish as an on-line presentation.
If the show can ever come back, and frankly I don’t really see how unless fans will totally accept a whole new cast – that would be astonishing. I still think they should combine the remnants of OLTL and AMC and build it into a new show – I think many fans feel this way since both shows feature characters from Agnes Nixon.
I am happy that the shows were included in the Daytime Emmy Awards and acknowleded for their contributions – just wish they would return.

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”

Meanwhile, Riegel sent out a series of tweets: “Hooo boy…cat’s out of the bag! Fans, please don’t judge our show based on these leaked videos!! The effects are going to knock your socks off. And my costars, and , are doing the best work of their lives!”  That was followed by, T”hank you for the chance to work with you on your first foray into soaps! I am humbled and honored. We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”

Now below, check out the Wild Cards “leaked footage” and let us know if you think of the …. um … drama! Comment below.  And one more thing … Happy April Fool’s!

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.
