The 2015 Daytime Emmys Awards have gotten a date! The annual ceremonies will be held a few months earlier than in 2014, with the date next year being Sunday night, April 26th!

NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) also has a few other important calendar dates to note:  The deadline for performer pre-nomination clips must be submitted by Friday, November 28, 2014.  The Pre-Nominations will be announced on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, while the blue-ribbon panel judging will be begin on Tuesday, February 24, 2015, with the final nominations announced on Thursday, March 26th, 2015.

Additionally, some new categories have been added which include: Guest Performers in a Daytime Drama Series, which could potentially mean nomination for the likes of General Hospital’s Donna Mills (Madeline), and The Young and the Restless Ray Wise (Ian).  And as occurred two years ago, the Younger Actor and Actress in a Drama Series category contenders will proceed immediately to the blue-ribbon round of judging.

There is no word yet on where and how the annual Daytime Emmy festivities will be held and whether a TV deal has been finalized, but POP formerly TVGN has been bantered about as one main possibly for awhile as where the show could land, if it can return to a cable or broadcast network, after last year’s online streaming version.

What do you think about the new date of the Daytime Emmys being moved up a earlier in the calendar year? Where do you think the Emmys should air?  Comment below!

Hopefully it won’t be as big of a joke as it was last year.

Yes!
it was embarrassing to the soap fans..
made us look like the looney’s people think soap fans are to have such a ridiculous awards ceremony representing our loved soaps.. LOL

it was horrible..
and in a way- that made it strangely interesting.. just how bad could it go ..lol

I agree who wants to watch the same old people win or the one’s who did nothing win. I would rather watch a golf tournament.

I believe the Daytime Emmys are just as important as any other award ceremony. It should be aired on CBS, NBC, FOX, or ABC. Or at least somewhere on TELEVISION. Bieleve it or not, not everyone owns a computer.

I agree. I saw that this year the Emmys will be held on a channel I do not have. Not everyone can afford extended cable.

Denise Royer

I totally agree that they should be telecast on a Primetime network. I feel it should be on a channel that shows the show that carry the Soaps. It is good enough to show the soaps but they can not show us the awards. come on people get with it. We had to give up our Soap when you all had to show the March Madness games. We love our soaps just as much as you all love your March Madness. come on people keep it real.

Thank you for hearing me out.

Can we please have people who know and love soaps doing the red carpet interview? I would rather see a lottery for soap fans to do this rather than the so called “personalities” they had last year. It was so degrading to our amazing actors and actresses to have total morons pretending they knew what they were doing!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

I wont watch if they cheapen it like last times…nothing is classy anymore!!!

I totally agree. Those women were AWFUL. Exactly who were they and why were those selected to interview soap actors when, collectively, the gals appeared to have about 5 minutes worth of exposure to daytime television.

The two red carpet hosts were a joke to me. That was really bad…hopefully this years red carpet hosts will have more class and know who they are talking to!

I know many people who still love to watch the Daytime Emmy Awards
What does it take to get it back on a national
network?? Should we start a petition? There are plenty of useless programming on
TV. I can not see how once a year they can not give the Soap Opera fans
a night on Network TV?? I think April 26th is great. Award season. Possibly get more viewers!
Let’s see what the Neteorks are willing to do for us?
Let us know what we can do to help??

HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE ON TV THIS TIME

I would greatly appreciate the Emmys being televised on Global this time around. I have missed it for years because it was on a channel I did not get. I also hope that this year they pick a professional to host the show. Last year was a disaster.

It is good to see an awards plan that recognizes the best of 2014 before 2015 is half over.

Hope the awards find a broadcast or cable home and producers that can craft a solid, classy, sophisticated program worthy of the talents of those in drama, talk, news, information, and children’s programming. We are overdue for that.

brenda

For 1 I hope we don’t have the same red carpet ppl do the interviews,it should be on a channel that everyone who is supporting by watching should have it!!!!

Mary SF

April is still within the awards season, so it should do better there then the end of June like last year, so that is good news. But it really needs a decent cable or network to broadcast it. The live streaming was a mess. And as much as people grumble against network censorship of language, etc it is there for a reason. Censorship protects not only the viewers but participants from making fools of themselves like they did last year.

And finally, if they can’t do a proper, respectful red carpet they should skip it and just broadcast the award ceremony.

Tricia

I certainly hope that the soap opera press will be there, especially on the the red carpet doing the interviews.

Leanne

It needs to be on TV I had a heck of a time watching it on on my phone .

diane

I hope it will be telivised . I watched last on line but did not like it..and those two idiots on the red carpet…get someone who knows about soaps..

Omar

It needs to be on TV..Not Online via streaming that was horrible and disrespectful to Daytime TV..It still bothers me that not one , NOT ONE, not one of the 3 networks, will give this show the time of day, yet they broadcast talk shows, food shows, judges show, cartoons, game shows and of course soaps, and make millions and millions of dollars, BUT none of these show are deserving of a network award show..If no primetime slot is worthy then at least show it on daytime hours..Networks need to show some respect to Daytime TV..It not only about Soaps but its about the whole Daytime World!!

kathy

I certainly hope they get it on TV this year. Last year was the worst I’ve ever seen. The previous year was bad but last year was awful. Those girls were a complete joke! They made fools out of themselves and had no clue who they were talking to. Let’s hope for a better show!!

Dan

Doesn’t matter when they have it, or on what network, I won’t be watching. They turned the whole thing into an embarrassment. The nomination process is a sham. The nominations aren’t a reflection of what shows, and what actors and actresses do the best work, but a reflection of which shows stuff the ballot box for their own people.

And don’t even get me started on that disgrace of a production they put on earlier this year, between the pre-show and the show itself. What a debacle that was.

My feeling is if you’re gonna do a Daytime Emmy show, do it right, or don’t do it at all!

Holly Tuell

Hopefully, they will not do a live stream presentation this time!!! It was awful. It kept timing out…or the feed would get stuck. Also, the girls they had this year, working the Red Carpet, and the room where the stars were gathering…PLEASE do not use them again!!!! They were using gutter language, focusing on the actresses’ breasts, and making lewd remarks in general….their interview technique sucked!!! I cannot believe they dragged the Daytime Emmys down to this level…what a slap in the face for the actors and actresses, as well as the fans. I feel the fans should have a say in how it’s done…and many comments I read after the Emmys reflected much of the same I just gave…and it seemed that the general concensus was to televise it in 2015, not live stream…if it’s a case of where to televise it, I would suggest Hallmark, Lifetime or TV Guide Network…though I can’t figure out why ABC, CBS or NBC wouldn’t want it.

I hope Kathy Griffin hosts the Daytime Emmys again, she was hilarious as the host. I love her comedy, she is a funny lady.

I do not care to watch the daytime game and talk shows awards, I care less about them, I do not watch them.. but ALL daytime are in the awards/boring..
There should be just soap opera awards, a half hour is all that is needed..

Nanci
Nanci

I totally agree.
And what a great idea – just a soaps awards show,
separate from the boring game show/talk show awards.
Those are a big yawn.

Tina Pearson

I think that having the daytime emmy awards in April is great, I also think that the awards should be shown on the cable channel like it use to be, It sucked last year that we could not watch it. That was very disappointing to us viewers that we could not see the awards being given and the whole show. Please bring it back on Cable TV

Lou Piikes
Lou Piikes

If you had the internet, you had access to the daytime emmy’s. Why didn’t you watch it?

Mark

They should bring it back to daytime and preempt dumb shows like the chew for a change

brownigirl53
brownigirl53

OMG The daytime shows that are on now are jokes,some of those talk show hosts are so boring! That chew has got to go the people on there are,well I don’t want to be mean.You know even Dr. Oz is ? !! Bring back the good old days of good talk shows,Games ,and good old Soaps.The awards show would be great on TV!

Laurie
Laurie

Yes, let’s hope they are televised this year, but it seems like they should be nailing that down..April’s not very far away. Daytime sounded interesting but I have no idea how network scheduling works so I don’t even know if that’s possible.

Dare I say Donna Mills’ current run on GH is even more fabulous than the last. Her zingers are amazing! These writers have the best sense of humor I’ve even seen so consistently in a daytime show. “The Donna Mills” has fabulous timing & snark! I’m very glad they added Best Guest Appearance in a Drama.

In the name of everything that is good and holy, please let Michelle Stafford and Alison Sweeney PUHLEEZ be nominated. And has anyone ever been nominated w/o dialogue? Just their eyes? Lol Billy Miller’s Jake Doe’s eyes were absolutely full of fear and confusion when he first woke up from his car crash alone in GH. His fear was palpable.

These actors deserve a Nightime, TV or Cable spot. They work their butts off all year, and to be dismissed to streaming is a disgrace. These actors work just as hard, if not harder than any primetime, cable or movie actor. So bring it on, and give them the respect they deserve. This come comes from a fan that has watched daytime since she is 5.

Jackie

Does it really matter they favor Y&R anyway so just give the Emmys to the cast of Y&R

Guest Performer: Donna Mills (please)!
I miss when the awards were broadcast on a major network.

Mo

Can we bring Betty White back to B&B so she can put in for best guest performer?

Anyone going to televise this year?

I hope they learnt from last year.

Keeping my fingers crossed that the show finds a TV home, that people who actually know about soaps/the industry put the show together, that they get a host who respects the genre, that the presenters are more soap stars than “other” stars and that they allow time for clips. These are just a few of the items on my wish list for the Emmys.

Derrick

Why April?

4ever DAYS

April would be good if the emmy producers would allow a May sweeps preview reel for each of the four soaps!!!! It would be honoring the future of the soaps as well as the past, possibly drawing in new viewers to the soaps!

Tina Gray

As long as they broadcast the awards, I’ll be happy. Perfect scenario? It’s back in New York and I get to go……..

Gia

All three networks has at least one to two daytime soaps on the air. I still think that the three major networks need to get together share the cost of production and air it on CBS, NBC or ABC…

Fox
Fox

Doubtful any of the big three networks would broadcast this on Sunday, April 26, 2015. May Sweeps begins April 23rd, so the following Sunday night will be filled with first-run, prime time dramatic fare leading into all the season finales that air in May. – jmho

So true! Thanks for the intelligent response. So many viewers think that networks are still as invested in soaps as they were 20 and 30 years ago and that’s couldnt be farther from the truth.

The live streaming looked great on my PC. The problem was those idiotic hosts they chose that had no daytime background. They were airheaded bimbos who embarrassed themselves, the actors and the genre in general.
Also TVGN offered them a deal that they missed out on.
If they are smart they will take the deal this year.
They need to realize that network TV is not dedicated to soaps like back in the 80s and 90s because they don’t make that kind of money anymore.
They arent going to go all out and spend hefty bucks to celebrate this genre anymore. Like it or not thats the fiscal truth.
They need to take what they can get and make the best of it.
And they need to produce a show that doesnt insult the fans and the workers in the industry. We all deserve so much better. SMH

It does not matter when the Daytime Emmy Awards air as long as there is an announcement about it and it airs on TV ; preferably CBS.

I’d like to see Mr. Fairman and Dan Kroll of SoapCentral working the red carpet. We need knowledgeable people greeting the stars, not those inappropriate teenagers from last year.

Jason Francis

I completely agree with everyone who thought last years show was a absolute joke and an embarrassment to all of us who love soaps and daytime television period. What I want to see from this years show is to have the show back in NYC and be back on network tv.

I don’t mind the change of when it’ll be, but it has to be a whole lot better than that debacle from last year.

Debbie
Debbie

The new date is fine with me I just hope they air to on TV so everyone can see it. The network doesn’t matter as long as I can see it with Dish. Pop network would be great!

Leslie

They should be broadcast on.a.channel that everyone gets. Like abc, nbc, cbs, fox, tnt etc.

Sherry

I hope the daytime emmys is aired on TV this year. I watched it online last year and I thought it was a horrible presentation. I do not like Kathy as a host. She is very rude and has a terrible mouth, which is not a big funny. I thought the entire show was a joke last year, mostly due to the fact that they could not give the actors the show they deserved.

susan

last yr when they made a tragic mistake and put this fiasco online it was such a total disappointment and a slap in the face to the many fans who are very devoted to daytime tv. lets hope they come to their senses and broadcast this show on tv like its always been,

POP/TVGN is fine. Or, “E” would be good also.

I live in Canada and I eventually found it , but it was awful! It needs to be on regular cable, IN CANADA, TOO!!! It is too much to expect the “powers that be” to highlight the technical Emmys, but my SON has been nominated, for the SECOND time and I wish I could “see” something of it!!

Joy

Time Warner does not have TV GUIDE NETWORK, where else can I watch the DAYTIME EMMYS?

Will the soaps awards be on any Canada channels this year?

Stacy

I remember when it was in NY and I used to go in person and watch from the audience. Now I can’t even watch it on TV. It makes the fans feel like we’re not even important. I find it disgraceful that I haven’t been able to watch in years.

Mina

I am soo upset that the Canadian fans of the soap opera world cannot see the award show this evening. What in hell is the pop channel and why can’t Canada get it. We are a huge part of the success of the stars, the shows and we are loyal fans… This is sooo unfair…. Tell me why my friends and I should continue to watch our soap operas…This is a big slap in the face for the canadian fans…Trust me there are alot of us..

Very angry fan..

NBC Chairman, Paul Teledgy Says: “Days of our Lives Is Going To Carry On”

Very exciting and hopeful news Days of our Lives fans, and those of the soap genre, coming out of the NBC Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California Saturday morning.

During the lead-off executive session, NBC Chairman Paul Teledgy opened up about the status of Days of our Lives with the network since no official announcement had been made on their end as to the renewal pick-up of the beloved daytime drama.

However, Teledgy revealed:  “We are in a middle of finding out very soon,” and then added, “Of course Days of Our Lives is going to carry on. We love it. Millions of Americans watch it every week. I know that will be good news for the fans.”

Teledgy also told Deadline after the executive session that negotiations are still ongoing and the series will stay on NBC, and will not be moving onto the upcoming Peacock streaming service said to bow very soon.

The chairman’s comments come nearly two months following DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday’s comments to the cast that the show had been renewed for its upcoming season.  That came on the heels that for cost-cutting measures, during the dark months, that the cast had been let- \out of their contracts.

Now, it looks like there is no doubt there is more Salem to come! Buckle-up for more intriguing stories within the series innovative time jump in the coming months … and that the four networks soaps are all here to stay for now.

Share your thoughts on Teledgy’s comments that ‘Days’ will definitely live on to see another day on NBC via the comment section below

Heather Lindell Crushes It As Jan Spears Returns On The DOOL App’s ‘Last Blast Reunion’

On Thursday’s release of the 7th installment of the DOOL app’s digital series, Last Blast Reunion, it marked the first full episode featuring Heather Lindell in her return as the villainess and twisted, Jan Spears.

And as viewers of the series will note, Jan was the mean girl back in the day who had a thing for Shawn (Jason Cook, now Brandon Beemer) and back in 2004-2005 she kept the young man locked in a cage as her love slave as she went off the rails.

Well, as Last Blast Reunion fans will note in the 2020 version, Jan has kidnapped Shawn (Beemer) and this time he is shirtless and tied to a bed, as we learn just what Jan’s twisted plot is for the “Last Blast Crew”.

We won’t spoil the rest, but suffice to say, what a fun breath of fresh air it is to see Lindell do her thing, and remind us all why she can play cray-cray with the best of them.  Make sure to download the DOOLapp to see Jan try to take down the “crew”.  And, be on the lookout on Friday on the app for a sit-down interview with Lindell.

So, what do you think of seeing Heather as Jan Spears again? Would you love to see her jump back on the airshows as well sometime down the line, if she does or doesn’t get her comeuppance? Comment below.
