41st Annual Daytime Emmy Nominations Announced!



Nominations were announced this morning by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) for this year’s 41st Annual Daytime Emmys! Good Morning America made the announcement of some of the major categories.

However for soap fans, it was The Young and the Restless who scored the most nominations of all shows with 26 followed by The Bold and the Beautiful with 18,  and in a shocker, ABC’s General Hospital failed to garner nominations in the Outstanding Drama Series, Writing and Directing categories. However, Prospect Park’s reboot of One Life to Live made history becoming the first online soap opera to land a nomination in the Outstanding Drama Series category! CBS was the network with the most Emmy tally when all the nominations were said and done with 61!

The ceremonies for the 41st annual Daytime Emmys will be held on June 22nd at the Beverly Hilton, while the Creative Arts awards will be handed out on June 2oth.  NATAS has also said that if the Daytime Emmys cannot lock in a television broadcaster, it will stream the ceremonies online.  Here now are the nominees in all of the Daytime Drama categories.  Congratulations to all!

As a GH fan I’m not happy. the 50th year was exceptional

This has to be an error. General hospital show be on there.

I have to say that GH should not be on there and I am happy they are not. there is nothing on GH thats makes sense nor do they ever end a s/l, mosy everything is recycle and its gross! We have no true couple to cheer for because they have no chemistry. Its people thrown together because RC/FV think they are hot, and frankly I don’t hink they know to much about man and woman chemistry appeal.GH have good actors/actresses, but they have actresses dumby down for men, and thats not what women are about today. There is no action with actresses we know can do action, to me is just the mess that was once OLTL, under a new name GH!

They seem to be punishing GH’s excellent team of Frank Valenti and Ron Carlavati for turning this stinker of a show 360 degrees around. GH is the only soap I care about and will continue to be – IMO Y&R is a tired old, old, granny soap that moves with the pace of a turtle. How man times will that old goat marry his ex wife? Talk about recycled stories. And Steve Burton? What a farce – he’s nothing but a so-so actor – always has been always will be. GH is superbly written, staged, paced, the stories are interesting and humor abounds! Even my brother is hooked and it’s not for any reason but the writing. I don’t understand why people bash GH – it’s far superior to any soap on the air today. This just proves how ridiculous these awards are – how much do you want to bet they will be aired by CBS? For those who bash GH – please just stop watching – ABC is looking for reasons to get rid of it and YOU AREN’T HELPING THE CAUSE OF SOAPS AT ALL.

You nominate Steve Burton over Michael Muhney? Burton did better acting saying nothing on GH. Wow some of the actors/actresses nominated are some of the worst actors on soaps. The nominating process leaves a lot to be desired.

Why is MCE aka Chelsea on this list she is awful

Hey Kim. But I don’t think she’s awful though. But there are better.

She’s one of the top actresses on the show.

Sharon Case is the best. Why isn’t she on the list for lead actress?

ITA with you there!

I also agree, Sharon is great.

I will not watch this season. Sharon isn’t on the winners? Why she did a fantastic job

Sharon Newman aka Sharon Case 😀 is my winner from Y&R. Always and Forever

Sharon Case hasn’t received an Emmy nomination in ten years.

What joke, GH was excellent in its 50th year!

Yes it was exceptional. Exceptionally, bad.

I just cannot believe General Hospital was NOT nominated for Best Show and Best Writing! It is totally ridiculous! GH is 10 times better than Y&R and I used to be a Y&R fan. These omissions make no sense! They are going to nominate OLTL and not GH???

Can’t say whether or not GH is better than Y&R but under this EP/HW it is a sad parody of what it used to be. The show used to be iconic (thus the multiple Emmys year after year) and now it should be shown on Saturday mornings and replayed plot point by plot point in morse code. No character development, just one outrageous reveal after the next, until we are reduced to watching enemies have hate sex on top of the crypt of a person they just killed. The show deserved to be left out, period.

There is no soap on television today that even can compare to GH. The writing, directing and actors are superb. Y&R & B&B are no longer viewable they are SO bad. I am just gobsmacked at some of the choices . Is the nominating committee watching the same TV because I just don’t get it.

I only watch GH. The others are just stupid. I enjoy the craziness of the new Luke and Sabrina is a very good addition. None of the other shows hold a candle to GH. I smell politics in this, CBS is hosting the award show, funny how that works.

Congrats to all the nominees.Now i wish others had been nominated instead but that happens every year.


I totally agree, Sharon is one of the best actresses in this era, not to mention she is stunningly beautiful and sexy. Go Sharon

Slam! Cartini.

Tony Soprano once said, “Revenge is best served as a cold cut.”
Well, Ron Cartini has been served.

I can’t believe GH is not up for best drama or best writing. This totally sucks

Believe it. GH is terribly written and produced. There is no depth or emotion to the writing. It is all plot and the plots have more holes than swiss cheese and characters are dumbed to advance these terrible plots. The stories are all predictable and recycled baby switches, love triangles and cartoon villains running wild. Vets are pushed to the back and only trotted out on occasion to prop newbies. New character after new character introduced with no way or reason to want to connect to them and this need to put former OLTL actors front and center when their characters are terrible and their performances are lacking. And character after character written OOC to accomodate the stories and new characters.

Sean Kanan was right. Relish, Panic attacks,DVD’s, BLT’s, obnoxious children acting like adults, sophomoric jokes that amuse the writers, but no one else.

The writing is terrible and so is the production. The pacing and continuity are lacking and totally unprofessional. Cartini deserve this slap in the face. Their product is unwatchable. They don’t listen to the fans, maybe this will be a wake up call for ABC.

I agree…GH has good ideas but then they poorly write them…the death of A.J. was the worse thing to happen on this show!!!

Very well said!!! The writers and producers of GH need to watch old GH at it’s best and takes notes and learn.. Sometimes I feel like they write as if they have never even really watched old GH, but maybe just read some recaps.. they write as if the didn’t or don’t even like old GH.. if that is the case, they are at the wrong show.

I hate to admit it, but you are right. GH is almost unwatchable right now. Cartini seemed to be on the right track for awhile, but since the OLTL character switches, it has gradually gone down hill. GH has traded heart and soul for campy ‘a-ha’ moments. Too bad.

Yes, GH50. Maybe this will be a wake up call and ABC will finally take some action and hire a reputable head writer who can do some serious damage control. I still believe this train wreck of a show can be saved but not under the tenure ship of the very arrogant and stubborn Ron Cartini.

ITA with you!You can only moke screen for a while. They came in and changed things an brought over 3 from OLTL and inserted them and make things that didn’t make sense. GH makes no sense, they have no s/l and once you get a answer to one question, thats followed by another. Why did they hired 2 people from a canceled soap to write for GH.Its not working and it haven’t worked. They make promised to actors and don’t keep them because ome of them think of something else dumb to do.They have actress on there they should never be fron burner and have nothing but hev triangles all the time.They already have Jerry Springer on, don’t need anyhmore of that.As for good ideals they have not.The problem is these 2 made a big mistake when they first too over GH, and they have fallen back into that OLTL mess. The anticipations of storylines are always better than the actual event.

Could it be the destruction of the Qs once again in favour of the mob hour? I think so.

I couldn’t agree more GH50. I think GH’s relatively small ratings bump had more to do with ABC axing 2/3 of their lineup than it did with Cartini’s brilliance. Unfortunately they seemed to believe their own press and think they could afford to thumb their noses at the audience with smoke and mirrors stunt returns that went nowhere as well as juvenile camp that seemed more geared toward entertaining themselves than the fans. I hope this snub provides a much needed reality check for them and ABC.

GH has risen to be the best soap on TV. Everyday something major happens and you want to tune in the next day. It should have been nominated for Best Show and Best Writing.

I agree. The second it was announced that OLTL characters were coming to GH, many of us knew that the GH we watched for so long would be disappearing before our eyes. Now, we are living that nightmare. TPTB ignored every criticism and forged on with disrespect and ignorance as to what was the right thing to do FOR GH. Instead they only did FOR THEMSELVES. It’s no wonder GH did not get is NOT GH anymore and that is the REAL TRAVESTY.


Good points Karen. I just think that GH making it to 50 and seeing some of our beloved characters were enough to gander a nom. But, having said that, even when they had decent stories, they seemed to been written by Emma and Spencer!

i love GH always will no matter what, but i hope this is a good blow to RC and FV that while they do and are capable of producing a great show, more often then not the show is all scattered and overbloated. fans have place their concerns and have been ignore. the biggest complain was the show getting to cartoonish, but RC and his beg ego kept ignoring a large part of their audience. RC is the head writer, but he can’t write to just please himself, he got to balance the show and listen to the fans, cut the cartoon crap. on anoter note, i also feel like theres GH envy, although they haven’t beaten Yr bb in the ratings, they do get more press, plus also wontdering what show did they submit for emmy consideration? RC and FV have never been good at selecting shows, look at all the years they were on oltl and only won once, you can say all the crap you want about JFP but she at least knows how to submit shows that “win”. one thing for sure though, Us GH fans always have to take up the ass because the big shots listen when its to late…

I agree that possibly the biggest problem with GH right now is RC’s arrogance. I have seen some of his responses on twitter and they show a marked disrespect for the audience and their opinions. The GH audience has been with the show a lot longer than he has and if they have concerns they should be taken seriously, not insulted and discounted. Even if they are critical and rude it’s not good form for him to respond the way he does. However my main issue with the current GH is the implausibility of the story lines. The most recent example is Sabrina giving birth on the side of the road to an 18 week premature baby. There was no real urgency in getting help for this baby. A baby that premature would not be able to breath on it’s own. On rare occasions a baby that premature would survive, but not without heroic efforts. When they finally got to the hospital there was more concern for the mother than for the baby. Sabrina was rushed into the ER and Patrick and Epiphany calmly rode up to the NICU(?) in the elevator discussing the situation as Patrick held a scrunched up blanket to his chest. Some effort should be made to make real situations at least appear real but the writers don’t even appear to try. I remember when the writers on soaps did research to make sure they made situations as realistic as possible. God forbid that much effort should be exerted today.

Y&R and B&B are horrible horrible soaps. I can’t even watch anymore and I used to watch faithfully. General Hospital is the only watchable soap on TV although they need to reign in the evil Luke Spencer story line everything else is great.

Go CBS……………..

Absolutely thrilled for OLTL. Has the ceremony found a network to air on?

If they found a “home” then PLEASE take your people from GH back with you. We do not want them on GH. They take up our time and they are not liked. Thank you/

Michael Easton,Roger Howarth and Kristen Alderson have been GH for over 2 years now and you and other people may not like that they are on GH but others may like that they are on GH.Plus i’m wondering people would be disliking them if they had come from another soap besides OLTL.

speak for your self, the OLTL 3 are NOT going anywhere, only reason OLTL even got a nod is to appease the fans, give me a break!!!

The OLTL 3 have been shoved down our throats..Kiki has no chemistry with Michael. Seeing Luke trying to rape her is disgusting. Silas has no Chemistry with Sam. The Nina story is god awful. RC whitewashed all of Franco’s crimes.One minute Franco is a Q the next Scotty’s and Heather’s son .I loved these actors on OLTL not on GH. With RC and FV GH is Doomed. I really had high hopes for GH when RC and FV took over.

OLTL has been vindicated! Yes, there is justice in the world.

Hello Harry, it was great seeing OLTL over and over! I still miss it!

Ditto. Long live OLTL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GH has really gone downhill in the quality since Ron & Frank took over hasn’t it.

Yes it has. They have new actors on that has put down GH also. If OLTL is being nominated and is going to maybe come back on… let those oltl actors leave GH and go to their own show. It has gone down more since they have come over.

Yes but you have to give them credit for keeping the show on TV.

Michael Easton,Roger Howarth and Kristen Alderson have been on GH for over 2 years now.So i don’t consider them OLTL actors anymore.Yeah GH didn’t get nominations this year but GH may not care that much.Awards are great for the actors because it’s a recognition of their good work for the year but maybe for the show overall it’s how many people tune into watch GH.Fans don’t tune in to watch soaps because of who won awards but because of the characters and stories.

OLTL is NEVER EVER COMING BACK….did I say NEVER?? The show is not down hill and if it is why are you still watching???? oh that`s right because you like to complain.

gh used to be the home of super couples like luke and larura and brenda and sonny there is no good couples on gh any more

I am not surprised that GH didnt get any nominations in the best directing, writing.. becasue honestly that soap.. which is my fav of all time.. is all over the place.. stories are dropped for months and revisited after no one cares.. and then there are stories that drag out for months and months.. we see actors like once a month if that.. My opinion is that without the continuity of a story I would say they didnt deserve the nominations.

Totally agree with you. I am so happy for One Life to Live though.

Agree. Get rid of oltl people and that would give our GH people more time on the show.

I agree ! This is my favorite show and there are a lot of the actresses and actors that don’t get the air time they deserve. I know you need to bring on new characters at times but they do it too often, The stories are all over the place. I miss the old days!!!

I agree. Too many recurring characters, storylines being dropped for weeks with a then too quick of a wrap-up.

If you think that’s bad, Y&R is worse imo. I didn’t see the new OLTL but wouldn’t it be something if they won!

I so hope OLTL does win!!!!!! I’d die with a smile on my face.

What happened to g.h for drama??

gh should get the best soap on T.V. Maurice should get the best actor on gh , i love my GH & Y&R

GH is the best soap on tv. Maurice is one of the best actors and I can’t believe he wasn’t nominated. This is a rip off. I am so disappointed. Everyone on GH is good.

Maurice is the best. Carly should be up too for actress because of what she went thru when Heather kidnapped her.

Heather kidnapping Carly happened this year and those scenes could get Laura Wright a nomination next year.

I dont like Carly but your right, she did a heck of a job with being kidnapped. Maybe she didnt submit a reel? I read where they had to twist Jane Elliot’s arm to submit a scene for her nom.

MB did not submit a tape because I think he is unhappy with the drivel he has had to play. He did not deserve a nomination. Laura Wright is either phoning it in lately, or trying to compensate by over acting so it is fair she wasn’t nominated wither. The actress who was really over looked here was Finola Hughes who gave an emotionally wrought and real performance as a mother reuniting with her presumed dead daughter.

why because he had sex on top of the Qs crpt lila started to like sonny sonny has gone down the drain

This is a travesty beyond epic proportions!How could general hospital not be nominated for best show,writing or directing.I remember in 1985 the show was nominated for best show but failed to have one acting nomination.The new nominating system is not working.The other shows should agree to let general hospital submit episodes for direction,writing and show so they can compete with each other fairly.Ted corday,bill bell and jill philips need to come forward and in solidarity ask the academy to allow gh to be nominated in each category.Otherwise,this is a waste of time.Finola hughes ignored,kimberly mccoulough ignored.This is all a joke! I am absolutely disgusted.

I agree with you 100 percent.

Hi john, Ted Corday can’t come forward, but his son can. Ken Corday is executive producer of Days of our Lives. May Ted and Betty Corday R.I.P.

With so few soaps left, I feel a true celebration would be to nominate all soaps for the top three categories.

Same here. Yes, Finola and Kimberly should be recognized.

Sorry john, but Bill Bell (Y&R) can’t come forward. May he R.I.P. also. Brad Bell is the name you’re looking for.

LOL john! Jill Farren Phelps is whom a lot of fans wish would have never come forward!!!

Seriously? Why would any of the other EP’s do that? GH didn’t deserve the nomination by many, many viewers opinions in addition to the selection committee… why cheapen the nomination process with such an amatuerish “do-over” mentality? If TPTB at GH want to compete to win an emmy for their production then let them improve the show and actually earn that chance.

This is a piece of crap. KMc should have been nom, so should have Kelly Monaco and finola. Plus GH should have more noms. And should have been up for outstanding drama series. This is horrible. There is like no GH. Thanks a lot. My night will be ruined thanks to this.

This sounds like it is fixed and somebody just didn’t like GH.

It’s all politics!! The have their favorites and that’s it. Not taking away from people on other shows there is a lot of great acting out there but you can’t say there isn’t politics involved. Some win repeatedly and some are nominated year after year and like Susan Lucci finally win it!
I stopped watching it! I hope our GH people win. I also was a fan of AMC and OLTL, I’d root for them also!

This is the final wake up call for GH. An overwhelming fan base has been unhappy with the horrible campy writing which is very badly paced for well over a year. It is time for Ron to stop sailing on that river of denial. His arrogance has been blinding him to the truth for quite some time no

What happened to Sharon Case! She is the best

I agree totally. Sharon Case absolutely rocked and owned her performances this year.

I agree, what else did she have to do do get a nom?

SC should have been in the final cut but she still has lead story and looks better then ever!

Come on! Heather Tom again please! Ridiculous

Heather’s reel she submitted was STRONG. She’s a strong actress.

Her and Kelly Lang???? Again????? REALLY?????

I know and next year will have to deal with her brother being nominated. The Bell’s are powerful people in daytime!

I can understand HT she had some great scenes but KKL over Maura West??? I don’t think so.

Yes HT is but I personally think it is time for a rest from her I am fatigued out with her!

No Maura West? This is a joke.

No shocker about GH. Carlavatis big Twitter mouth probably pissed off the Academy.

Wouldn’t surprise me. His total disregard and crass behavior is not attractive.

That is exactly why and as much as I get mad at JFP Y&R cleaned house with nominations I do not think she is going anywhere.

K/kay, the anger people place at JFP is mis-placed. She did what many wasn’t able to do: fix Y&R.

@Scott I am giving her credit she cleaned house with nominations she knows how to get emmys she is still using veterans on Y&R she did not clean house like she normally has done in the past the people who were fired when she first came on were not veterans. So please understand I am not on her back anymore. Of the last three that went MS, MM & BM only MS was a 15 year veteran. Jeanne Cooper passed away she was not to blame for that. Maybe just maybe she learned her lesson. Peace!!!!

A pretty pointed smackdown of ABC, by the industry, or at least NATAS, in the Prospect Park versus ABC conflict. Even with its faults–and there were plenty–GH didn’t deserve a best writing or best show nomination any less than Y&R or B&B (can’t judge in regard to Days because I have barely watched it in the last year or so), and I think the nomination of OLTL for best show clinches it: somebody was out to send a message.

It’s one of the things I generally hate about these awards (Emmys, Grammys, Oscars): they’re political, so I can’t really take the results as seriously as I’d like to. I’m always happy when actors/actresses/writers/shows I admire win, but it detracts from the glory of winning when I know the process is tainted from the get-go. (And I’m talking about something separate from the fact that the process is procedurally problematic–you have people winning/losing based on a few shows out of a year of work. There’s that, and I hate that part too, but it’s also tainted by the introduction of political considerations.)

yes, I agree! Thank you!! I still like the actress or actor whether they win or lose. Just don’t like the award shows.

I agree that Emmys might be political.If GH was not nominated for best show because the judges didn’t think it was that’s fine but they shouldn’t let personal views come into the decision.Just like the fans the judges may have their favorites.However maybe the best revenge GH can get is to prove they are the best show around despite not been nominated and get everyone to work together.

So very very well said. Thank you for sharing your worthy comments, Michael (not Fairman)!

Well said. All you really need is one good episode out of the entire year. You could slack off or even be backburned the rest of the time. It doesn’t matter.

Doug Davidson????? Christian Le Blanc????? Totally not earned this year!!

Where is Maura Wests nomination?

Glad to see Amelia Heinle, Bryan Craig and Katherine Kelly Lang is finally nominated as a lead!

Maura West should have been nominated. It’ll be another Heather Tom year.

Maura and Finola being left off is simply criminal.

Very happy for Bryan Craig. I just adore him.

I agree about Maura; she is an unbelievable actress! Heather Tom probably submitted the reel of when she found out about Bill and Brooke at the party. Those scenes got a lot of buzz. I hope Eileen Davidson wins the Lead Actress Emmy this year!

No No No No No and clear big NO

to ache, drab, dull, puzzling… Heather Tom ? again ? absolutely NOT

this is Eileen Davidson’ YEAR : I stand ON that

Paul and Michael are great characters but they had quieter years. Nominations should have been given to someone else.

What the??? Where are the nominations for Alison Sweeney and James Scott??? Their performances are constant perfection! Not cool…

Totally agree!

James Scott, most definitely. Sad when you see Bryan Craig (nuMorgan) and Kristen Alderson (Kiki) from General Hospital being nominated and not James Scott!

You can correct me if I am wrong but I think James Scott has been vocal about how he feels about the emmy process and as I totally agree with him they do not like that. Thin skinned folks up there!


Yikes… can you imagine that…..

shiver… in the same sentence…. Bryan Craig, Kristen Alderson, James Scott, and Alison Sweeney

woah! why! WRONG!

I’m so with you… I don’t get the appeal of dull Kiki… and so over the bereft Heather Tom

Oh thank you Patrick someone else agreeing with me about HT so been there done that! I refuse to believe 3 years in a row she is better then the others. I will stand firmly behind this statement you must have a big ego if you can not take a rest and not submit after winning three years in a row one supporting and two lead. I have not seen ED & AZ’s work but please by all that is holy can one of those gals win.

Who is Daniel Polo?

Can’t believe Y&R got so many noms considering it’s probably the worst soap on the air in terms of story, but I guess these are acting and the actors are doing well with the story they’ve been given.

Why only four best actress noms?

Good to see KKL nominated. I’d kinda like to see Heather win again, but Eileen probably should. She’s long overdue.

Chandler Massey should win again. Fo sho!

Any news if the Emmys will be broadcast?

Daniel Polo played the role of Jamie Vernon, the young man Summer Newman & Fenmore Baldwin were cyber-bullying on “Y & R” – the character was written out of GC by having him go to DC with Ronan Malloy.

That kid was stiff as a board. Both him and Ronan. Hopefully they stay away!

Guess I will record it and fat forward to where GH noms are! Total disappointment that GH wasn’t nominated for Oustwnding Drama Series! There are only five, why not throw them all in rather than leave one out?

I would like to know who actually nominates these characters anyway.

I’m with you. I will dvr and ff to what I want to see.

Why not throw GH in for total destruction of characters and stories? Gee, I wonder.
Maybe there should be a category for largest cast of cartoon characters.

Heh–Margie. GH does feature a lot of cartoon characters and with that peeling of the mask scene, I am reminded of Scooby Doo. I guess Franco is Scooby now.

I am shocked General Hospital missing from top awards.

I agree.

im not

Sorry should say *fast * forward!

This stinks! Unbelievable! This must be fixed. Nobody watches those other shows anymore, get real!

Do you even read the ratings?

No Greg Vaughn. Really feel he deserved one. The same people all the time. Heather Tom again please give me a break.


spare me (Heather Tom)

tissues and disappear, already


MM took himself off the ballot!

I checked, because I was also surprised. He was not pre-nominated. Only explanation I can think of was the scandal that led to his firing.

Yeah, Micheal Muhney was GREAT… I wonder what reels each actor put it.. I wish both Billy Miller and Jason Thompson could win. I realy hope Bradford Andrerson wins, he is such an amazing actor, miss seeing Spinelli on GH.

He dont believe he submitted his work….the actors have to enter their work to be in the running

Ohh. didnt know that. ya probably because of the scandal. ..its very sad. im very sad because he was onces running the show. so sad for him. im sure if he would of enter his work, he would of won doubt there. so it was all for nothing? good ratings and thats it for the guy?
again, im so sad. loved him as a actor. seemed to be a good family guy too. this is a sad day for me………

Amen. He was never charged with anything and he is one hell of an actor!

Muhney would have won, hands down. This is a farce.

He would have been snubbed and treated like dirt by his co-stars.A few of them sided with H.K.

GH didn’t deserve to win. The writing and quality of the show is terrible. The biggest joke it that Kelly Sullivan got in over Kimberly McCullough. Not the first time since it seems the academy has the usual pets with the acting categories. Will never forget the FA reveal where Kimberly killed the scenes and I remember reading everyone commenting how she would get it since she was excellent (even non fans said she was exceptional) yet she got ignored again. This is why these awards are a joke. First with only 4 soaps and then with the voters choosing the same friends year after year.

Congrats to DOOL, Y&R, B&B (didn’t watch the newer OLTL ) they deserve to be nominated since they are a real soap opera unlike what TIIC did to GH. TIIC ruined GH that many fans knew and loved. It barely resembles GH unless your new and never watched. TIIC push certain characters who are the writers pets and at the expense of legacy characters and vets. You don’t ruin a legacy character who grew up on GH and give everything she was to their pet who couldn’t make it on her own.

Kelly was so much better than Kim(she looked bored most of the time but i cant blame her)…i agree with most of the other stuff your saying…GH is off track with the fans and needs a complete turnaround storywise and house cleaning soon or it may loose more viewers!!!

Kelly AND Kimberly were both great!

As much as I enjoy Robin, Kelly S is a far better actress. Glad she is getting recognition.

The new OLTL wasn’t worth watching unfortunately and I say that as a long time fan of the show. I am disappoint that AMC and GH didn’t get more nominations especially in the acting and writing catoegories.

You’re right…OLTL wasnt as good as it should have and could have been…just wish it had more time to improve!!!

Kelley Missal, One Life to Live deserves it in the younger category she was excellent as Dani. Hope to see her on another soap soon.

Glad to see that Arianne Zucker has been nominated. Would have been thrilled if Allison Sweeney and Kelly Monaco were also nominated.

Thank goodness Jason Thompson got nominated, because Patrick had rough year. James Scott got severely snubbed.

FINALLY! Jane Elliott is getting recognition for her hard work.

Guess that GH learned a valuable lesson by firing a good actress(Kelley Sullivan) for no good reason.

GH could bring Kelly back as Connie letting everyone know that Kate was an impostor!

GH pulls rabbits and subliminal oughta their arsenal so fast…. why NOT re-hire Kelly Sullivan…. it was Kate : Connie’s Twin who died

I’d take this and run with

she’d supplant ALL of them AT GH

I have to agree with James Scott’ interview… that DAYS of OUR Lives… Truly IS in a Healthy Place…. should win : Ta-Da two years in a row… best serial

I say this because…. when Alison Sweeney Leaves… I’m hoping.. it’s Kelly Sullivan who takes over, as Sammi

That’s why GH wasn’t nominated for writing, directing, or show this year.

I’m very happy for CBS and their soaps for their nominations. Sad to see Maura West and Laura Wright missing from the Lead Actress listing. But I’m very pleased with the nominations!

It’s so much fun to sit back and smile.

Big ole snub.

🙂 🙂 🙂

You are talking about GH right? If so maybe they should have spent more time on writing for characters we cared about then trying to keep RH, ME, & KA on the show.

Another thing! Are they serious GH got nominated for costume and casting. Sorry but costumes look like they come from a trash can. And as for casting, I have my doubts that MT is the one casting and not
his assistant who is probably cheaper or FV himself. Casting has been horrible since FV and RC took over. These newbies are terrible, which is why many are forced and shoved down viewers throats.

I know, you watch the way GH people dress and then switch on Y&R. Y&R looks like the Oscars while GH looks like a Walmart fashion show!

After watching those two, you switch to B&B and its a whole other level of dressing!

I am not surprised that GH did not get a nomination for writing, directing, and best show. The show may have gone up in the ratings but the storylines and writing is a ploy —- bring on the vets and then write horrible storylines that make them look bad and then dismiss them so they are upset — Jack Wagner, Gene Francis, Kimberly McCullough, Tristan Rogers (these are icons of GH and the soap industry). They may act like Cartini is terrific but we longtime fans know how they feel. Cartini uses these vets as fillers for promoting his newbies that no one cares about.

The writing is inconsistent, the storylines don’t mess and the conversations between characters that the fans want to see never get written — they happen offscreen. The writing is plot point driven and not character driven — that is why there are even less nominations for acting then years before. No FH, TG, MB — all who are the best actors in the business.

Also in the industry Frank is known as a micro-manager in the directing and this was a comment from the industry that they don’t like that.

Furthermore, Frank admitted that they submitted the nurses ball as the scenes for the show — something that was campy and not liked by many people because it wasn’t as good as the ones in the 1990s — when GH won 6 best show Emmys under Wendy Riche. Frank also admitted helping KMc pick out her scenes for the nomination and she of course didn’t get a nomination — even though she has been getting great reviews for her return from the magazines — obviously because Cartini can’t tell the good from the bad.

I agree that is a slap in the face to GH and how it is not respected in the industry and maybe changes need to happen.

Excellent comment. I sincerely hope that the suits higher up, including Vicki Dummer, re-evaluate the regime they’ve chosen to oversee this show, especially the headwriter. I would be less than honest if I said I was disappointed that GH wasn’t on the ballot for Best Drama and Best Writing. Directing can be a toss up, but In the end, FV and RC have no one to blame but themselves for the poor showing in the other two categories that GH was left out of.

Where is Michael Muhney’s name? He definitely deserved an Emmy nod? Congratulations to the rest of the nominees and best of luck to all of you. Will the Emmy’s be broadcast on mainstream television this year, or will we have to go onto a website to watch?

Lets hope Hunter King wins an Emmy and the presenter is Michael Muhney!

Michael pulled his name and nomination following his departure from Y&R.

And the Emmys may be broadcast online since television rights haven’t been secured yet.

Days should also had Eric up for supporting actor. EJ Dimera should also have been nominated. I am totally surprised. It looks like Y & R and B&B are the only soaps on tv.. I used to watch them both but left because they were boring. Now I just watch GH and DOOL.

Im ok with most noms but was hoping K.G.(Dr./Mutter) and not K.A.(Kiki) got nominated for supporting actress for GH…

I agree with you Beave

VERY glad to see Eileen’s name up there! She should win. Ari was AWESOME too but no kidding Eileen carried Days last year.

Glad to see Eric Martsolf nominated as well. I’m eh on Chandler. IMHO Freddie’s always been a better actor so it’s sad to not have him up there. Also wish Blake and Greg would have been nominated. Both were very strong last year.

Also hoping Days repeats and wins Best Drama. Can’t say I thought they deserved it last year, but they TOTALLY do this year!

Billy Miller and Chandler Massey have lookalike expressions and smiles…lol

What a joke.The head honcho at GH must have really pised the academy off.How could every soap but GH get nominated .Some have not even been on for over a year.We all should all know by now that these awards are all scripted by the networks.who’s turn is it to win this year!.GH has been on for over 50 years.They must be doing something right.

I agree.Plus i’m wondering if this was another swipe against ABC for cancelling AMC and OLTL and the only way people could do it was to punish GH.If GH wasn’t one of the best soaps last year that’s fine but they should be judged by that and not anything that happened behind the scenes because that’s not fair to the people at GH that i’m sure did the best they could.As OLTL i didn’t watch it.So i can’t say if it was one of the best soaps last year or not but i’m wondering if their nomination also had something to do with the judges wanting to punish ABC.Plus maybe the judges think if OLTL gets nominated or even wins it could make Prospect Park bring it back.Also the judges may have known they couldn’t nominate both AMC and OLTL for best show because then people might have wondered if they were using the Emmys to prove a point.

All my Children snubbed at the other categories in this years Emmy’s….. that’s just wrong.

I hope OLTL cleans up !!! And shows ABC !

not happy at all…while I wish all those that were nominated the best of luck, I really feel that the nominations were a bit biased…not saying that the actors and people who work on Y&R don’t deserve to be nominated, 61 nominations, comon…there were plenty of actors on GH who also deserved a nomination..i personally think that GH got the shaft here and i’m not all that upset that it doesn’t look like its gonna be televised, specially after last years fiasco..don’t wanna put myself through that again and what with GH being shafted, NO THANKS

Extremely happy about the OLTL nominations. The show must have been doing something right in its one online season. Maybe more is in store??? It’d be great if it took the top prize! GH should have had far more acting nominations…Finola Hughes and Maura West for sure. Glad to see Jane Elliot return to the race – she is fantastic.


Lmao poor gh!!!

I am pissed that Casey Moss was not nominated in best younger actor
but Daniel polo was and who is he? Lol

Polo played Jamie Vernon who was cyber-bullied by Fen and Summer!

Perhaps her scenes came in too late for consideration and she will be nominated next year? I agree, she’s a terrific actress.
But I am OUTRAGED! OUTRAGED I TELL YA! Why wasn’t the actress who plays GH’s Nina nominated.?

Harry, Casey is the young guy who plays J.J. on Days, and Nina(Michelle Stafford) isnt on GH yet!!! Mistake or are you joking…lol

He is thee Stud Muffin of the hour

on the horizon

in your face

I love it

Cassey Moss : dream maker : he has already elevated his stats on DOOL

so… I’m content with his show


don’t go away

I love

Looks like the Bronx cheer Ron gave the fans for daring to say he is a terrible writer, His crypt sex, kids as a triangle, no more Q’s no cops with brains and babies are us, and three times the mobs and molls.Now he knows he will get it returned to him. GH does not deserve any awards. .maybe now the soap media will see what the viewers see.

Whoo Hoo to Eileen Davidson, Ari Zucker, and Kelly Sullivan! Kristen Alderson, seriously? The little actress who plays Emma Scorpio Drake on General Hospital should have been nominated! That little girl has more talent in her pinky than some of the other actresses on the show!

Oh, and whoo hoo to Jane Elliot; love her!

GH is at the top of its game and the Ratings prove that. The acting is great on GH.


Please, add : Amelia Heinle : My Queen and heartbeat : Victoria, Y&R

I’ll continue to say : thee ONLY two stars : deserving… at Genoa City

Billy Miller
Amelia Heinle

I bid Liz Hendrickson farewell and adieu… if she wins… I’d applaud her work

so with only 4 noms in lead actress someone blew away the field, I’m guessing it was ED but we see.

Zoe (Stause) is pregnant and along with Kennedy (Baird), are offered a break from their stressful lives when Kennedy’s boss gives them a key to a cabin in the woods. Watch out!

According to The Wrap, “When they arrive, they are met with less than welcoming arms, prompting Zoe to sound alarms of homophobia, which Kennedy attempts to tamper down. ”


The official loglines from Lifetime share on the story: “Just as the two let their guards down, their nightmare begins. They realize they are completely unprepared for what is in store, and that the townspeople want something the two have.”

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos to Kick Off Season 36 of ‘Live’ with New Show Opening

The new season of morning talk shows begins this week, and one of them, Live with Kelly and Mark, is starting things off with a new show open starring the hosts and married couple, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, formerly of All My Children fame.

Make sure to circle Tuesday September 5th, when Kelly and Mark begin their first official season together as co-hosts of the long-running show now in its 36th season.  As many know, Consuelos joined the show back in April of this year, after Ryan Seacrest made the decision to depart the series and move back to Los Angeles full-time, since the talker is shot in New York City.

In the concept of the new opening, the husband and wife duo are seen brushing their teeth in their apartment, then going through a couple of outfit changes/looks, before they settle on what they wearing as they are driven to their New York City studio where ‘Live’ emanates from, and arrive in its corridors.

In addition, this season will have a new trivia game segment called Stump Mark.  In it, Mark will try his darnedest to keep the coveted Live mug away from trivia callers trying to stump him with their two statements — one true, one false.

Scheduled guests for the week: Derek Hough, Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Etheridge, Josh Gad, Shinedown, Phillip Phillips, Nikki and Brie Bella and more.

Take a look at the opening title sequence for Live with Kelly and Mark below, and then let us know what you thought of it in the comment section, and let us know if you are looking forward to the new season of the talk show.

Kelly Ripa Teases New Season of ‘Live’ with Husband Mark Consuelos: “Our Show Is Best When It’s Going Off the Rails”

Since Mark Consuelos joined his real-life wife, Kelly Ripa on the morning talk show Live with Kelly and Mark, the ratings have never been better.  In fact, according to the Nielsen ratings, the former All My Children stars came in second behind The View for the 2022-2023 television season in total viewers averaging 2.293 million.

Now with the new season upon us come September, Ripa spoke with the Purist about what fans can expect now that Mark is coming into his own as her co-host.

Kelly shared, “We’re going to provide the same sort of humor and irreverence that people have come to know and love. Mark has taken the trivia game, where Ryan (Seacrest) and I would just give away coffee mugs to the audience, and decided that he’s not going to do that any more. There are no participation trophies in life, he says. If they want to win a mug, they’re going to have to stump me. I don’t really follow the ratings, but from what I’ve been told that since Mark has taken over, people stay with the show all the way through because they want to see whether or not Mark gets stumped.”

When asked what favorite segment on Live is her current favorite, Ripa expressed, “I love talking to the trivia callers. Our show is best when it’s going off the rails, when our audience gets to see the slip-ups. It is not this highly polished, Hollywood thing. It is two people meeting, having coffee, having just read the paper. We never cover actual news, we cover absurd news. When you factor in a person calling from their cellphone in the parking lot of a grocery store, what have you, it is rife with the ability to derail very quickly, and I think that’s what I love the best. I also love our viewer feedback at the very end of the show, where we take our viewers.”

So, are you looking forward to more Live with Kelly and Mark? Enjoying the duo on-screen together on the morning talker? What are your favorite staple segments from the show? Comment below.
