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!

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.

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!

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??

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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,… Read more »

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… Read more »

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..

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.

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

Bring back the good old days of good talk shows,Games ,and good old Soaps.The awards show would be great on TV!

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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!

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
Guest
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… Read more »

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.

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.

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..

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

Photo: JPI

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Photo: JPI

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
