The 41st Annual Daytime Emmys are getting into the groove by making it faster, easier. and more accessible for both entrants into the competition and judges by implementing a new online voting system!  As well. NATAS announced today that Emmy submissions are now being accepted in all categories!

In the official press release, NATAS revealed that, “Entries for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are now being accepted and that submissions are open in all 81 Daytime categories.  In addition, registration is open for all qualified judges to evaluate entries.”

As far as the soaps, the press release related: “With six Daytime Dramas in contention this year, we are thrilled to open the gates for what we expect to be a record year in all Daytime Emmy Award genres,” said Malachy Wienges, Chairman, NATAS.  “In addition to adding three new Spanish-language categories, we are implementing a brand new entry/judging system that will allow entrants quick and easy submissions and judges the ability to evaluate nominees at work, at home and just about everywhere else!”

“For the first time, the Daytime Emmy Awards contest will be completely online.  Using the services of Yangaroo, Inc., an industry recognized awards-program provider to organizations such as the Grammys and MTV Video Awards, all entries will be uploaded right from the entrant’s desktop and all viewing and voting done online.  “The industry has been asking for the convenience of online participation for some time,” said David Michaels, Senior Executive Director, Daytime Emmy Awards.  “With the addition of this new program and new categories, I believe we will have an overflow of entrants and judges eager to participate.”

The Daytime Emmy Awards recognize outstanding achievement in Daytime programming broadcast between the hours of 2:00AM and 6:00PM, by conferring annual awards of merit in various categories. The presentation of these awards is intended to be an incentive for the continued pursuit of excellence.  Eligible programs must have originally aired between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013.  In addition, NATAS is offering two deadlines: the new “early deadline” provides entrants a lower fee if they submit by December 20, 2013.  The final deadline for all submissions is January 17, 2014.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmy submissions and judging now moving online?  Do you think it will help in the numbers of actors and shows that decide to participate?    What do you think of the changes?  Comment below!

I would like if the soap fans could vote..
I do not like a chosen few making the wining decisions, they might not have ever even see a soap .

“Oh, No!”

All, I can say; right now….

1. I hope DAYS and GH clean up….
2. As riveting as Y&R Delia story was… I hope for #1 first. I say this cause… of the exit of Billy Miller.
3. doesnt time fly… it seems like just yesterday… it was horror abound… that GH was so dissed… think the women of GH.
4. i’m not so sure… as well… that AMC and OLTL should be contenders.. same reason… ie: the cancellations of… and what? 40-50 eppis? compared to DAYS & GH

“I LOVE Day of OUR Lives!” best serial…. repeat best show. Yes! Gods… Help Me!

I agree with #4. I don’t think any nominations should be wasted on shows that are gone after so few episodes. It’s just not fair to the shows that are on five days a week, year in-year out.

Janet

I disagree

Given that AMC are OLTL are most likely never coming back, it would be fair to at least give them a fair shot for this year’s emmy. After all, they did air this year even if it was for a brief time. Excluding them would be unfair. That doesn’t necessarily mean that AMC and OLTL should win the emmys if the other four soaps better deserve it. But AMC and OLTL should at least be given the opportunity to compete in this years’s event. This is probably the last year that they will ever have to participate.

Yes they are, along with OLTL. There is also a new web-series category so shows like Venice, The Grove, etc are also eligible!

Y&R deserves nothing.

You can say that again. I am so disappointed in them. Just as you thought it could not get any worse it does. The same ole things that just doesn’t seem to go away. Victor and Jack are great grandfathers so to speak and they still won’t stop the madness. They both need to lose it all and just go away to an island just the two of them. I don’t know how much more fans can take of it. The Delia and Carmine storyline won’t go away. The show is dying and no one seems to care.

Has everyone missed the point, it is because of GH and Ron and Frank that there is a lawsuit and OLTL and AMC are cancelled, never to return. I won’t ever watch GH or support them, they are just as bad as ABC. IMO Debbi Morgan was great and should win. Her bowing out I think shows how the actors have come to view PP, which is because of GH.

brian

You have made a very interesting point…but I like their “styling” of a show… and I am watching GH because, to me, it “feels” like OLTL…

and I haven’t ever considered Ron and Frank in the demise of OLTL before.

SUSAN M.
SUSAN M.

Brian Frons had a lot to do with the demise of OLTL & AMC…It’s all on him..

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Ron and Frank did nothing, especially to AMC…the lawsuit blames ABC for hurting OLTL by having GH kill off several minor OLTL characters…a laughable lawsuit…all PP had to do was have the reboot written as if those character were still alive the same way GH wrote out the OLTL 3 as if they werent there…there were no AMC characters on GH and their storyline wasnt affected at all…PP took something that was too expensive for them to produce…it was all about the money!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

GH best soap…the actresses who play Anna and Dr.O as best actress and best supporting actress…Eileen Davison ties with GH for supporting actress for DOOLs!!!

shawn

Eileen Davidson is NO supporting actress. She is a LEAD. If there is a God, Eileen will be nominated for Lead Actress and WIN.

You’re right…she is a lead…that was a typo error…i rush when typing! lol

Love the idea. Anything that helps the nominees submit their entries easier and quicker; along with easier viewing and voting for judges is a win!

We do need more than what we are getting lately. It was such a big mistake when they took these soaps off of the air. We have nowhere to turn now. Hoping doesn’t seem to be helping any.

SORRY..IT SHOULD SAY: I so hope that Kimberly,Jason and Brooklyn are ALL NOMINATED FOR A DAYTIME EMMY. THEIR WORK HAS BEEN PHENOMENAL FOR THE REUNION OF THE DRAKE FAMILY. also, GH deserves the nomination ….! Lynn Herring deserves nomination for best vet to return to daytime.

@SuOOOO

you make me laugh… with your “spoilers” if you will….

Com’on… I deserve to live in my bubble… every once in awhile

hey… you bring us down to earth… and it’s a grand time to share with… thank you MF! Cheers

I don’t dare spout on the actors as of yet… till we see the pre-noms… and who make the cut.

Kimberly…imo…always looks bored, even when she cracks a smile!

U have ur opinions and I have mind. So we can agree to disagree. Infact, Faison is a villain and Robin is not. TWO TOTAL DIFFERENT CHARACTERS AS WELL AS PERSONALITIES…!!!

AMC and Days for the win!

GH is on fire! SO many actors & actresses that are deserving of a nod! But right now Jason Thompson is standing out in my mind for best leading actor. Showing every emotion possible when dealing with an unimaginable situation and he’s nailing it every day!

all i can say is…..DAYS OF OUR LIVES and ONE LIFE TO LIVE…..DESERVE IT ALL !!!!!!!

I hope Days of our Lives wins because they tend to think outside the box, bringing us daring daytime drama.

I laughed so hard after… tuesdays epi: Nicole, and Jerry Penicoli, character… the entertainment reporter… who’s trying to get Nicole to do an expose on Father Eric…

Jerry Penicoli… telling Nicole… this stuff is HOT… not verbatim… but.. you know what I mean… after watching… “thee” scenes… with Father Eric and Kristen….

the funny part of all this… and yes it’s dark… but… Nicole… fought so hard… for Eric… and with Brady.

lo and behold… at the end of the show…she’s in the park… and/or Horton square… watching “IT” on the internet… and Eric comes upon her…

I have to hand it to DAYS… it’s so smart… how this has played out.. because.. try as they might… and I hope i’m right… they never find out he was drugged….
folks.. this is a story… and I say this because.. of how much I want the door left open for ED’s return… WITH child… what if she… managed to get a sperm sample.. and with her eggs… heck… even Brady’s … and has a surrogate mother… and returns to Salem… with: either or’s baby?

Good Lord! any one with a libido… intact… can’t not help but be sizzled by: THEE Kristen and Father Eric wanton…. I Loved it.

LOL… Victor so nonchalantly… must have enjoyed it! saves Brady from…. but let’s it be known to the world… as it were.. that he knew if was Kristen and Eric… I laughed when even Victor made it known to Maggie… who’s off her rocker… to misplace blame… to Victor… agreed that it all seemed consensual.

Days of OUR Lives… does in fact… think outside of the box… halo and all… for the law abiding citizens of Salem… and the fallout is my favorite family… “The DiMera’s”

do you think it’s possible to replace ED as Kristen… ? I wouldn’t like it… but… I like the idea of Kelly Sullivan, ex-Connie from GH… would work… and what about Trevor St. John, ex-Todd/Victor, OLTL… as Peter Blake? I would love this… built in fans of highly touted shows… to bring in more viewers… to further elevate DAYS and the DiMera’s.

wishful thinking…

DAYS is on all cylinders… I love this show.

4everDAYS
4everDAYS

Patrick, I agree with everything you say. I would stand in line(which I hate)for several hours to be able to buy your book about your love for DAYS.

I should also add I think you and Jim would make a great writing team for DAYS!

Btw, Michelle Stafford would be great. That would be fighting fire with fire! I do feel the need for Kristen to return earlier than ED would be able to.

Happy viewing, Patrick!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
