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!

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)

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.

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

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!

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.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
