Im really glad Donna won too…liked her on LIAMST soap back in the late 60s and in tv movie, ‘Live Again, Die Again,’ and in theatrical movie, ‘Play Misty For Me’ and of course ‘Knots Landing’…i thought Ilene Kristen shouldve also been nominated for guest appearance too…i hope KG…our favorite Mutter…is nominated for a supporting emmy next year!!!

Shay
Guest
Shay

Yes, jimh, you are so right, Ilene also deserved a nomination, as did Constance Towers! Both were awesome in their own inimitable fashion. And Thaao Penghlis, too! I think the academy needs to separate the Emmy category for guest appearances into male and female categories….there were so many deserving individuals with limited roles this past year and most were on GH! As for Mutter, OMG, yes! Kathleen Gati most definitely should win for best supporting actress….she is utterly superb! I certainly hope she has another stunning musical number (or two…) at the upcoming Nurses’ Ball!

B&B has always had strong production values so there no surprise they would get the majority of these awards. Surprise there was a three way tie for guest spot, but I’m glad Ms Mills finally got an Emmy for something. The only one I was confused by is Days getting an award for set decoration,scenic design and art direction– but I suppose trying to make the same set look like 5 or more other sets, does take some talent and pushing some plastic tulips into foam, does make the fake park look very spring like– LOL– I’m glad they won… Read more »

The park really improved since it got rid of that stairway to nowhere and that white couch that never got dirty…i guess birds only like to poop on benches and the back of my dang head!!!…lol

Perhaps they won for alternative/creative set design ideas on a shoe string budget? HA! I forgot about the couch. I still don’t know-is the square outside-the couch confused me. I assumed it was outside with people running throught the square into the “park” and “woods.” It must have a dome for inclement weather, haha!

They didn’t get rid of the white couch, some kids for Salem U must of have stolen it because it is now in their lobby on campus– LOL

Lol, jimh. That infamous staircase served its purpose, no? Sadly the purpose was for Nicole to tumble from it, losing her unborn baby; which I detest when soaps do that. And, of course, that staircase landed Jenny in jail….I was glad for that, though….LOL.

Sharon Case should of been nominated. Her work on The Young and The Restless has been outstanding for the past several years 🙂

I agree, Kim. Sharon Case is the only credible character, in my opinion.
Every challenging role she is given, she makes her own and excels in it.
We are given front row seats for her front-burner performances, yet she is kept in obscurity…know what I mean?

Days won set direction? Really?! I guess the fact that they can re-dress one office set for everyone makes them winners….Sorry, but the fact that there are so few sets these days Is not outstanding in my opinion.

Days for set design? I guess I missed a few episodes.

3 way tie on the first stars? At least Donna got her award – she deserved it! They should have aired that one Sunday with all the name actors competing for it.

I had a good laugh over this one;

Outstanding Hairstyling for a Drama Series
The Young and the Restless (CBS)

Most, not all, wear wigs or have a 10000 hair extions, their hair is rarely natural..
ohh well, lol ..

GH.. All seem to have their own natural hair.
(dont know about B&B and DOOL hair)

guess the award is for best wigs and extensions.. aha!

I agree, Su. Y&R has the worst hairstyles/hairstylists of the remaining soaps. Abby and Lauren sport the worst….passe’ and artificial. Phyllis and Chelsea wear the most natural hairdos.

As she has appeared on television on daytime serials, night time series, and made-for-television movies for 45 years, I’m am very surprised that this was Donna Mills’ first Emmy award. I’ve enjoyed watching Miss Mills for decades on the various television shows/movies in which she has appeared. Frequently, it appeared to me that Mills was carrying a LOT of this programming “on her back.” One could make the argument that she single handedly “saved” an early “Knots Landing” from cancellation by the way Mills, formerly known as a “good girl” TV actress, nailed the role of vixen Abby Fairgate.

I agree Jules and Mary SF-sort of ridiculous; athough, I am thrilled that Donna Mills was recognized for her talents. With only four soaps left, there really isn’t a reason for a tie in any category-IMO.

I am completely shocked this was Donna Mills first. nomination and win. She was the best on knots Landing ! She almost carried the show alone.. I didn’t see much of her on GH. I really can’t watch the mess this show has turned into. Congrats to Donna and Ray also. I remember him on soaps before.

Glad Donna Mills won her first emmy after all these years. Was not surprised Ray Wise and Fred Willard also won. I think B&B may have become the frontrunner to win drama series,because they dominated the creative arts emmys,and sometimes this is a sign of what’s to come. I think it is a tossup over who will win Drama Series,because none of them really stand. I thought their were much better episodes for the shows to choose from,but my pick is DAYS because of the gay wedding. It was an historic first for daytime,and the day in age we now… Read more »

Donna Mills is very deserving of this award. She lights up the screen every time that she’s on, which isn’t nearly often enough, in my opinion. Come back soon, Donna! Congratulations on your 1st Emmy!

Congratulations to all! However, I must admit I’m confused by how DAYS could win for best sets. They look like a bad high school production, just cheap. The other three soaps easily have better looking sets.

Happy for all winners, but really REALLY felt that Meredith Baxter was the strongest performer in that category. She was riveting to watch and she mixed it up with series regulars like she had been doing it for years.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Photo: NBC

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Photo: JPI

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
