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!

“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… Read more »

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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!!!

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

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!

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
