Just want to say Congratulations. to everyone. But expescially. Prospect. Park. for returning. AMC and OLTL to amazing shows .and to all there hard work .I wish them.well .AMC and. OLTL will always remain heart . My hope and my dream is soon we will have them back,

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.

They’re just a bunch of (h)air heads!

I was brought up that if you can say anything nice about someone, you don’t say anything at all.

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.

So glad to see AMC and LOL win. Wish ABC would admit their mistake and bring our shows back!

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.

Congratulations to AMC and OLTL. Both shows were absolutely first rate productions. Please come back to us.

Happy to see AMC and OLTL receive some much deserved recognition!!!

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.

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.


Ha!!! ABC RUINED them(actually killed them).
Prospect Park tried to save them and hopefully still will,but if not it was great to go back to Pine Valley and Llanview one more time.

Congradulations AMC & OLTL!!! 5 awards!! Just think what they would have gotten if they were back on tv!!! BRING BACK AMC AND OLTL PROSPECT PARK!!!!

From your lips to God’s ears!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes GREAT to see some wins for the GREAT,but so far short lived AMC and OLTL.
I hope they come back again(third times the charm).

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!

Go CBS. Great send-off win for AMC and OLTL!!!!

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!

Congrats. I think Days should have won for hair.

Congratulation to PP winning Emmys for AMC and OLTL. Is anyone getting audio for the red carpet coverage at

I am unable to watch daytime emmys. I am not getting audio or video of the ceremony.

Can anyone help me stream the daytime emmys at

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.

Billy Miller Memorial Scholarship Endowment Created at His Alma Mater to Help Others ‘Realize Their Dreams’

Two months since three-time Daytime Emmy-winning actor, Billy Miller passed away, the beloved All My Children (ex-Richie), General Hospital (ex-Jason/Drew) and The Young and the Restless (ex-Billy) star, will now have a permanent scholarship endowment in his honor at the University of Texas at Austin which was Miller’s alma mater.

Through the scholarship, it will be able to help radio/television and film undergraduate students with financial need. Billy’s family and friends have established this permanent scholarship in his memory, naming it the William Jon Miller II “Billy Miller” Memorial Scholarship. They hope the endowment will be a legacy to his life and love of acting.

Before becoming soap-famous, Billy graduated from the the university’s department of Radio-Television-Film (RTF) at the Moody College of Communication. On its official website, they shared the news of this special memorial scholarship and how Miller died at the age of 43 after surrendering his life to bipolar depression, which he struggled with his whole life.

Megan Hubbell, Billy’s sister, expressed, “We want something positive to be held in his name in perpetuity through the University he loved. He would be honored to know that even in death, he can help someone else realize their dreams.”

She added how she hoped her immensely talented brother will be remembered: “I hope BJ (as Billy was known by to his friends and family) is remembered for the kind-hearted, silly, funny, goofy, generous, beautiful soul that he was His megawatt smile, deep belly laugh and gorgeous mug were gifts on screen, but his true self was a bright light that will be carried with us forever.”

According to Miller’s family, Billy had his picks of schools and UT was his first choice. When he first came to the university, Billy started in the zoology program before switching to radio-television-film, where he felt he belonged. Miller was one of just 20 students at the time accepted into the department’s prestigious production-sequence program.

“BJ was extremely proud to be a Texas Longhorn and always remembered his time there fondly,” Hubbell said. “The time he spent at UT allowed him the space to explore who he wanted to be and what he wanted to accomplish.”

In honoring her brother’s work and strength to persevere in the often heartbreaking world of entertainment, Megan related: “I always admired the guts it took to go after a dream in Hollywood that so many people tried to discourage. He heard, ‘You’ll never make it’ more times than I care to count, but he used those comments as fuel and said, ‘Watch me.’”

Miller’s roles went far beyond those on daytime soap operas, as throughout his career he played major parts in primetime’s Suits, Ray Donovan and Castle to name but a few.

In his death, Billy’s family is encouraging people to take stock of their own mental health. “BJ would want anyone struggling with intrusive thoughts to seek professional help,” Hubbell said. “Do not suffer in silence or try to muscle through on your own. Mental health is vitally important and shouldn’t be spoken about in silos behind closed doors but rather in open forums with open arms. Shame has no place in the discussion to seek help.”

More great numbers for Live with Kelly and Mark. The talk shows Live’s Halloween: The Eras Show scored an impressive 2.9M total viewers on October 31, making it the most-watched Halloween episode in four years, according to the Nielsen ratings.

The episode also delivered some of the highest ratings in seven months for the morning show, particularly among women 18-49 and 25-54.

As is tradition with “Live’s Halloween” episodes, they are always filled with costume and pop culture moments and special guest surprises. Ripa and Consuelos were right in step with the biggest social media love story at the moment; that of Swift and her burgeoning romance with Kansas City Chiefs Tight End, Travis Kelce.

During Halloween week which started on Monday, October 30, Live was up up 11% versus the week prior in total viewers, and averaged 2.6 million viewers throughout the week.  Year-over-year, the talk show was up that week by 15% in terms of total viewers.  It looks like the former All My Children’s alum on-screen chemistry is just as palpable as it off-screen; as the two marrieds are making quite a successful run together on morning television.
