Courtesy/NATAS

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced today the line-up of talent that will be joining host Kathy Griffin as presenters for the 41st Annual daytime Emmy Awards.

In the presenter line-up getting the nods from the soaps are: General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco, Jason Thompson, Michelle Stafford and Donna Mills, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Scott Clifton, Darin Brooks and Kim Matula, The Young and the Restless Sharon Case and Camryn Grimes, and Days of our Lives Casey Moss and Kate Mansi.

In addition from daytime programming presenters include: The Talk’s Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, Sheryl Underwood, plus Mario Lopez, Billy Bush, Brooke Burns, Judge Cristina Perez, Mo Rocca, and Mark Labbett.

Overseeing this year’s event is Executive Producer Spike Jones, Jr., who expressed his excitement over this year’s talent and new categories.  “It’s a double great evening,” said Jones.  “I’m thrilled to be producing the Daytime Emmys with the hilarious Kathy Griffin hosting.  Plus I get to see the debut of the Entertainment News category Award. Access Hollywood going up against Extra? Entertainment Tonight versus E! News – with TMZ thrown in as a wild card. It’s going to be epic.”

This is the first time in its history that the prestigious organization will be utilizing streaming technology, provided by Livestream LLC, to broadcast the awards show, and it does so in the hopes that audiences around the world will be able to engage in an event which celebrates programs that are known internationally and boast a global fan base.

NATAS will also be connecting with viewers through their social media platforms, enlisting the help of several social media ambassadors to capture special moments on-site and share them via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine and YouTube.  “As the Daytime Emmys embark on this exciting new social and digital strategy, we take great joy in welcoming Brittany Furlan, Jessica Harlow, Meghan Rosette, and Lauren Elizabeth into the Emmy family,” stated Paul Colichman, Executive Producer of the Red Carpet and Social Media.  “These official red carpet and social media hosts not only bring millions of new millennial fans, but they represent the style, warmth and humor of the show.”

I remember when Soap Stars were nearly all the presenters at these awards. I remember when we had so many more Soaps…can’t believe how different the Emmy Awards were even 10 years ago. On Network TV and In New York City at Radio City Music Hall. This is sadness and a travesty because Soaps are a part of Daytime’s oldest genre which has made Television history on numerous occasions.

They treat Soaps like an After thought…shame on you NATAS.

Yes, I do recall when daytime’s performers drove the broadcast. In recent years, even the talk show hosts have been absent. It is a shame how daytime dramas have become marginalized. But I will watch. And I will cheer. Just love daytime drama!

Omar

I agree with you Iakovos..It is so sad to see the award presenters to be so limited and no star power from the daytime community like it used to be.

It is what it is, so like you say, lets just cheer and enjoy what we got via the internet..Its an end of an era, but we can hope for our remaining soaps to hold still and hopefully a younger generation can help the genre grow more…I am seeing that with GH, hopefully the other 3 will catch that fallowing.

I can watch lol
” Emmy Awards will be handed out for twenty-five categories, including several new ones announced this year. ”
WOW!
4 soaps out of 25 plus several new daytime shows!!
, that means I’d have to sit through 21 and several more, daytime awards to see 4 .. and I would only care about 1 GH ..

Me watching – Not going to happen..
I do not watch nor care about any daytime shows with the exception of 1 soap..

I would not mind a Soap Opera award show..

Plus, Su00, you can’t stream that night because it might interfere with the signals the mother ship will be sending you.

LOL Harry..
no way! I have a direct link to the mothership..

but still- I’m not going to watch 25-30 daytime presentations for daytime shows I’ve never watched lol

the after clips/videos for GH, will be all I need 🙂

You’re kidding me, right? ELEVEN actors from soaps are presenting? That’s it? No wonder no one cares about the Daytime Emmys any longer. Obviously the Daytime Emmys don’t care about the viewers either. Will I be watching? Not on a bet.

Fran

Would have like to seen someone from OLTL like Erika Slezak or RS JVD Miss them on my TV/ computer

Johnny

Forget about Erika Slezak, she was yesterdays news. Hopefully kim Kardashian and kris Jenner are at the daytime emmys. Love the Kardashians, Days of our lives and General hospital. Rumor is kris and Kim are making a cameo on gh next month.

Omar
Omar

The Kardashian are daytime royalty, WTF??? ..DOOL AND GH are awesome with flaws and all. I love them, they entertain…and Long live MS Erika Slezak..She is legendary and I and many other can watch her scenes over and over via YouTube.

Do not care for the Kardashians..Also think fans of that show are limited and simple..Hi Johnny!
Just my opinion!

Fran
Fran

She is a very talented and classy lady, and in away I am glad is not involved in the emmys becauset all u have to do to get nominated for a emmy these days is to be on a soap/talk show half of each soap on got nominated so at least ES knows She earned Her 6 emmys . If GH need the Kardashians to watch GH my point is made.

Lucky

Joan Rivers and Kris Kardashian, they are smart business woman, Joan Rivers is a great comedian. She is so funny. I cannot wait until the daytime emmys, Kathy Griffin is going to be so good as host, she is a funny lady.

Sandra

I really don’t get why they couldn’t have a soap awards show it doesn’t matter that there are only 4 soaps here in the UK we have 5 and we have the British soap awards which gives room for more catogories like best villain, best couple, best storyline etc.but I understand that you used to have an awards show like this. Why can’t they go back to doing that, it’s obvious that soaps still draw a big audience, but it does seem soaps are not as revered in the US as they are in the UK which is a shame.

Shayna

Will it be rebroadcast at later times? I have a wedding to attend that night and won’t be able to watch live. I haven’t missed the show 10 years.

Sad. Certainly not what it used to be – with Kathy what’s her name as the hostess, not that she’s not funny in a bawdy burlesque way but I don’t think she’ll add any dignity to this presentation.
The list of presenters isn’t terribly impressive.
We can thank ABC-TV for a lot of what this has now become – they axed
One Life to Live and ALL MY CHILDREN – a grievous error on their part.

When is this going to be air on TV

Um, hello? It’s NOT going to be on TV. That’s why it’s on the internet.

Mr. Fairman:

You ask viewers what they think of the line up of presenters? I will steal my answer from Dean Martin,”How did all these people get in my living room?”

In other words, who are these people?

Rodd
Rodd

I don’t get some of these categories Spike, Jr. is trying to hype as being all that. Entertainment news is a daytime category? Not in my neck of the woods. All those types of shows are on in the evening hours here.

And what’s with the limited number of soap stars presenting? Aren’t TPTB at the Academy listening to what people want? How many years to fans of soaps have to yell that we what more soap stars on screen; presenting, doing interviews, etc??? I get that there are only four soaps left, but if they’re doing on-line/web soaps now, why not them? Many are from some of our favorite TV soaps.

It’s just getting harder and harder to get excited about the Daytime Emmy, as a fan of the soap genre. Those who have the power to create an exciting evening have either absolutely not interest in doing so or don’t have the slightest idea of what they SHOULD be doing.

I applaud all those who have been nominated and wish them well. I hope the evening is everything you want it to be. Congratulations on all your hard work! Your fans love all of you!

I will be watching and hoping that this is a wonderful night for the fans, also.

“…It’s just getting harder and harder to get excited about the Daytime Emmy, as a fan of the soap genre.”

I wholeheartedly agree with

as long as Days of OUR Lives.. wins for 2nd year in a row… Best Serial

Billy Miller : best actor, Y&R
Eileen Davidson : best actress, Days

Eric Martsolf, best supporting actor, Days
Amelia Heinle, best supporting actress, Y&R

I really feel I could have a 5 out of 5… but… Elizabeth Hendrickson… Chloe, Y&R
could steal

otherwise…

for the waning genre…

if DOOL wins for the 2nd year in a row
and ED : Kristen, Dool

should win… I’ll soapbox… loudly and adamantly… like any other year

LOL : I’d love for the emmy shock and most deserving… Eric Marsolf

I will be present and accounted for

Omar
Omar

WOW.. You were almost perfect in your picks..DOOL should have won, so you were robbed by one category.

Patrick you sure know your stuff..4 out 5 predictions is awesome.. Need to consult with you for sports bets or gambling, so I can make serious money, LOL.

Good job 🙂

Does anyone know if there will be “commercial breaks” for the streaming show? Just curious.
I usually DVR all award shows then start watching about half way through so I can FF the commercials and MANY of the long, boring speeches, but I guess I’ll have to sit and watch this whole thing. 🙁
If it gets to be too much, I’ll maybe watch clips on You Tube and catch the highlights.

They will be streamed through the internet..
You will need to record via your PC; no DVR ..

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

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.
