42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Winners: DAYS and Y&R Tie For Drama Series, GH's Anthony Geary & Maura West Take Top Acting Honors!

Last night in ceremonies televised on Pop, and held on the famous stage 16 on the Warner Brothers Lot in Burbank California, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences bestowed honors to the performers in front of the camera, as well as the main creatives in show, directing and writing categories during the presentation of the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the Daytime Drama Series field, it was a tie for the main award of the night for Outstanding Drama Series, when presenters Tony Geary (Luke) and Genie Francis  (Laura) revealed it was a tie!  Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless were victorious.

But in the major acting categories, it was heavily-favored Anthony Geary, who took home his eight Daytime Emmy for his role as Luke Spencer.  And his cast member, Maura West took home her third Daytime Emmy, but her first for her role as Ava Jerome in the Outstanding Lead Actor category.

In the Supporting Actress and Actor contest, it was Y&R’s Amelia Heinle who was given the nod for the second year in a row for her role as Victoria Newman, and winning his first ever Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor was Chad Duell for his portrayal of Michael Corinthos on General Hospital.

It was a nice end to his run as Sonny Kiriakis on Days of our Lives when Freddie Smith was voted as Outstanding Younger Actor for his work, and Hunter King of The Young and the Restless took home her second Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series as Summer Newman.

The Bold and the Beautiful turned out to be the show to beat in the writing and directing fields as the series took home both last evening.

What did you think of last night’s big winners in the Daytime Drama categories?  Did the right show and actors win? Happy about who got some gold? Weigh-in below!

I was so excited for Tony and Maura!! But equally excited that Chad and Donns Mills won. I didnt understand the Outstanding Dama tie for DAYS or Y & R. Hopefully GH can take that honor again. It is a great show! It was AWESOME to see Genie Francis look so calm and amazing. Maybe she can come back someday!!

Genie looked great. Can’t say the same for Tony. Haven’t seen him in years so was surprised at how he has aged.

I think it’s his hair. Many men color their hair….makes a big difference. I don’t think he looks THAT old. Also, he’s been ill. Besides, Mo, Genie is 16 years younger…..big difference.

I think it is telling in a major way that GH is the ONLY show of the four that was NOT acknowledged for its story telling… two years in a row – one would think that would relay to TPTB at ABC that their production team isn’t cutting it (other than their successful budget management). B&B got best writing and directing, Days and Y&R share outstanding drama. Maybe now we can get rid of the shallow plot point progression, the camp, the never ending character dumb downs, the never ending personal triangles with no real romance, the epic stupidity of… Read more »

Elizabeth, I do love your post–especially that last paragraph.
Last night David Letterman showed Tony Geary’s Emmy reel in which he proclaims angrily, “I am not Bill Eckert” and pretty much ridiculed it as only Dave can do. It was hilarious and shown out of context, it only underscored the idiotic writing and the idiotic acting it triggered.

You summed it up really well. That said, I’ll bet there are a lot of “backstage” politics in deciding who gets what. Bet it can be pretty brutal and competitive…just like some soap episodes. Victor Newman come to mind.

The infamous question – how does a show win Best Writing and Best Directing and not win Best Show ? I am not a fan of The Bold and Beautiful at all as I was rooting for GH but that always baffles me !

Thing is we see our soap everyday for a year.. The judges see perhaps an half hour of the soap.. It also depends greatly on what is submitted.. Big winner; FV & RC submitted the Ava & Nina baby scene..WOW that was intense Nina making Ava give birth.. Superb acting! along with the great scenes of Michael, Morgan, Sonny and the AJ death, some really awesome stuff!!

Because each award – Best Writing, Best Directing, Best Show – depends on the episodes submitted for that category. It’s not an “overall” award. And, many times a series will not submit the same episode for every category, thinking one episode is stronger in one area than another & better represents that category. It’s a gamble.

Wished Alison Sweeney had won Best Actress. So deserved it. Was not a fan of Maura stopping to hug everybody and his brother on her way to the podium. The show was already running late, you can hug people later! So surprised Amelia and Hunter won for the second straight year. Hunter more so I guess. There were others who should have been recognized. Yay for Freddie! Did not like any of Tyra’s outfits. Also, most of the things they did did not work. Did not like the opening and then everyone saying ML’s name was not fun and had… Read more »

@ Mo – Eileen Davidson!!! I love it. She’s brings Best Drama wins. haha-ha – She’s just that good.

I didn’t see the show – just a few clips that Pop TV uploaded on Twitter. For me, I believe Maura West deserved the win. As much as I adore Alison Sweeney. It was definitely Maura’s year for me.
And, yes, super pleased that Freddie Smith won! That was awesome!

Suoo, what you describe in your last paragraph is the typical MO of a soap opera story. GH currently has a woman (Ava) who has allegedly died. a sixty year old man suddenly suffering from split personality disorder, a forty something man suffering from bipolar disease and etc, etc. This is the soap opera genre and no soap is more guilty of it than the other.

I agree Mo, last year all over again for Victoria & Summer. I turned it off. Do you remember for a couple of years Heather Tom (Katie B & B) won and a few feathers we’re ruffled? Now their doing the same with ( Victoria & Summer Y & R). I guess they pick the ones that haven’t won and let them win a couple years in a row. In other words it’s fixed. Summer was hand picked by Jill Farren-Phelps so it’s no surprise she got it, but it is unfair to the other actresses who we’re better. At… Read more »

Tyra looked like the Road Warrior costume designer had thrown up all over her.

Hunter King appears to be the “It” girl for the headwriters and producers right now but the viewers do not appear to be fans.
Amelia won again with her somnolent whispering approach to acting? Award shows are on automatic pilot sometimes.

@Harry…..Apparently Tyra and “Alexis” shop at the same unfortunate location. By the way, I thought of you this afternoon, when Lulu suggested Val-Chops visit the stables at Wyndemere….perhaps “Crazy Horse” will find accommodations there to her liking!

PS. Mo, I respect your fascination with Ali Sweeney. Great actress!, yes!!. But, it was always a recycled story where Ali was concerned…always more of the same. Different men, but no variation. I was sick of her storylines. Same breakfast, lunch and dinner, day in day out.
Her redemption, in my eyes was her mourning of EJ. Incredibly realistic. But, could never compare to Maura’s many unparalleled, heart-wrenching performances. My opinion.

The game show, Password, was part of the tribute to Betty White. She appeared on the show many times and married the host, Alan Ludden, who she declared the love of her life. So, it was a nice bit of vintage trivia playfully recreated. Probably sweet for her.

Agree on Tyra’s outfits. For s fashion model she certainly made a statement…just not a good one. Someone from the fashion police should have arrested her!

I thought it was just a two-way tie for best male guest–Fred Willard and Ray Wise.

I guess Donna was featured because it was one pic and she has been on soaps, albeit primetime, for years without a win.

Michael Fairman as his last name would suggest is fair. He is a journalist who happens to be a soap fan. He has interviewed and featured ALL the actors from ALL the shows on this site. We dont know who he asks to speak to or who lets him show videos or add quotes. I will be forever grateful for Mr. Fairmans content. He keeps a genre alive and informs me of news from ALL the shows and the actors perspectives.

And to be fair, it IS his site and he can show his love for a show more than others.

But there is also nothing wrong with his readers pointing it out.

It’s good both ways.

I do know that several of the soap sites overwhelmingly picked GH to win best show. I’m sure there was some seething….

I was thrilled that Maura West won. Her portrayal of Ava Jerome is top-notch. I absolutely love how she slithers in and out of scenes and how she is able to bring so much angst and emotion to each and every scene. She is a beautiful, talented actress. I am thrilled that she won! I am also happy for Tony Geary. As much as I disliked the “Fluke” storyline, Tony did an amazing job bringing “Fluke” to life and portraying such a broken, callous, disgusting, vile side of Luke. Congratulations to Chad Duell, as well. Chad has done an amazing… Read more »

@dmr….While I echo your sentiments regarding the well-deserved acting accolades for both MW and AG, I am totally bewildered with your comments on CD. Amazing? (Uh….where and when?) Sorry, but I must vociferously disagree with that assessment. Duell may be a nice guy, however, he’s serviceable at his very best, just downright bland and ineffective in his normal mode. I actually found him a comfortable fit with KA, but then I always liked her, if not her gormless character of Kiki. Having said that, her obnoxious recast is absolutely awful, although no more than that dreadfully deplorable dud of a… Read more »

Hi, Shay, I can’t say that I am a huge Chad Duell fan; but, apart from the whining and compared to the other less than stellar young(er) actors on the shows, I think he is able to at least hold his own while in scenes with Maurice Benard and Laura Wright. When Bryan Craig first came on board as Morgan, he was God awful, IMO-the writing was awful, too; however, he has progressed a bit. Perhaps if the character of Kiki was referred to as Lauren she would be a bit more tolerable; however, the character is useless and brings… Read more »

As far as Snorbrina, I thought we got rid of her and she is back in a front burner story ruining every scene she is in.

The jury most definitely isn’t still out on the new Kiki. The scenes featuring this character/actress are tantamount to nails on the chalkboard for me. These scenes are remarkably bad. The latest example: Kiki and Morgan adjacent to the elevator outside of Avery’s room congratulating one another about their perceived victory in securing custody of her. This particular scene was so bad that I literally cringed as I watched it. I felt badly for Bryan Craig. Certainly, his performance in this scene was poor, too, but I am a fan of his and the character so he’s forgiven. This time.… Read more »

I used to say that Kristen Alderson was like nails on a chalkboard to me. I can’t say that I am a huge fan of Nu-Kiki and honestly, the character brings nothing to the canvas. In other news, Michael and Sabrina have zero chemistry; their scenes were so awkward. I don’t like how the writers shove new “couples” or pairings down our throats without any back story or history-besides Sabrina babysitting Avery for what, two weeks? Ugh.

Shay
Guest

@CeeCee….Well, all I can say is that nobody deserves the hellacious nuKiki as a daughter more than your beloved Nina!!!! Given that Ms. Jerome apparently inherited her “evil, obnoxious gene” from somewhere, I think you can safely bet your pizza that this purported Jerome is in actuality an apple that did not fall far from the CrayClay tree!!!! Talk about poetic justice after absconding with that little angel, Avery…..instead Nina is going to end up with an adult-sized devil’s spawn as her true progeny. You have to love the irony!

Shay
Guest

@dmr….If you think that Mikey whines now, just wait until he hangs out with the perpetually-annoying Sappy for awhile….as you have so accurately pointed out, they have no backstory or credible reason for their pairing, so it’s pretty safe to assume that there will be plenty of nauseating, nonsensical scenes with little rhyme or reason featuring those two…..no chemistry, indeed! And nothing whatsoever in common. As for CD’s scenes with his parents and brother, I found his histrionics with them to be completely over-the-top…he really isn’t convincing to me in the vengeful mode……he simply seems immature and irritating.

Really enjoyed the show last night. It was so much better than last year’s fiasco, and some of those embarrassing Las Vegas infomercial shows that we’ve had in recent years. This was more like the Emmys used to be. Very happy for Tony Geary winning his well deserved 8th Emmy, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him take home #9 next year. Glad to see Chad Duell finally get some recognition, it’s been overdue for him, in my opinion, as he’s done quality work for a number of years now, dating back to the Michael prison storyline.

I agree, loved those scenes with Maura, Michelle and Donna, and the baby drama. That was a great episode as a whole, and one of the two that GH submitted for Best Show, which is why I thought they had a good chance to win.

Maura submitted the crypt scenes with Maurice, but she had so many great episodes last year, she could have submitted any of them and still won. They gave her quality material to work with, and she knocked it out of the park every time.

RE: Cathy

MF seems to have a thing for GH’s writers and can’t seem to write a single thing against GH, even when its well deserved. It’s actually laughable at the spin MF writes for GH’s failing raitings.

MF is a great reporter otherwise, but the blatant favoritism to GH only goes to show there is more going on behind the scenes.

I understand what you’re saying, GH Fan but as I see it Fairman is not critical of any of the soaps. I think the reason why is that soaps’ existence is precarious at best and his aim is to showcase and promote the soap opera genre in general.

It simply is-
GH always has controversy and its’ fan are voicetress..
GH always has something going to report about, other soap usually do not have much change, GH always has something to report on..

If something is happening no matter which soap he brings us the news..
Not his fault that GH is more active..

I have so much respect for actors on daytime. They work really hard and have a lot of dialogue to remember. Look at Donna Mills, she was a primetime soap queen. She came on GH and her head was spinning from all the lines she had to remember and was blown away by the pace in which the actors work. One of the reasons maybe daytime gets laughed at? Chad and Hunter Emmy winners? Seriously, if you watch any of the Disney XD channel with their tween shows, some of the kids are really talented. These two numnuts suck!

Ah, su. You are something else. I love it.
Have you ever stopped to think for one minute, that Maurice did not win because he can’t act? In my opinion, all his years of having been given the label of a great actor, was due to the fact that his persona as a mobster was glorified. He lisps, he stumbles through his lines, and Sonny is not the formidable mini-man he wants to have us believe. Look what happened to Napoleon…LOL
I saw many of his clips….not impressed….especially, his attempt at emulating Michael Corleone. BAH and LOL.

CeeCee, gotta strongly disagree with you on Maurice. I think the fact that so many actors submitted scenes that they shared with him and got nominated (Maura, Chad, Bryan Craig this year, two of them won) is validation of what kind of actor he is. The year Laura Wright won her Emmy, it was because of scenes with Maurice. Even though he’s still a lead actor on the show, he’s actually become more of a better supporting actor in recent years. I notice that every year. So many of the GH nominees submit scenes where they work with Maurice. To… Read more »

One of GH’s submission was the Nurses Ball and I believe this is what HURT their chances at winning!

I had never heard of the Pop channel and tried to find it amongst the hundreds of channels TW cable provides. Did not find it. I laughed when I read two of the four remaining soaps “tied” for best drama. Really now. The awards don’t mean much with so few soaps on the air. It seemed academy voters tried to spread the awards around to give each soap a little credibility,

You didn’t miss much, Rapids.
I found the whole affair to be rather depressing and anti climatic

Geary, Maura, and Donna Mills were well deserved. Glad Chad Duel won, too.

I thought it was a good show. All the soaps fared well. The Nurses Ball probably cost GH a chance at winning best drama. It was strange to see B&B win writing and directing,but not best show. I think it had to do with the episodes they submitted. I didn’t think those location episodes could win best show,they focused more on production quality than story. Congrats DAYS. Not overly surprised Y&R won best show again. The academy seems to like Jill Farren Phelps. She always seems to pick the right episodes to win.

JFP may have the touch for episode-picking. But, GH is clearly the show for actors to challenge themselves. I think it says something that seasoned actors (Billy Miller, Michelle Stafford, Maura West, Donna Mills, Roger Howarth, Michael Easton) are attracted by GH’s atmosphere & reputation. And, longtime GH actors – Tony Geary, Chad Duell, Laura Wright, Jason Thompson, Finola Hughes, Tyler Christopher, Maurice Bernard – continue to find their characters interesting & fun to play. I hope that for next year’s Emmy competition, FV & RC chose the April 1, 2015 episode to submit – where Luke flashes back to… Read more »

While not in contention this year, add to your list of actors going above and beyond…currently Jack Bergman of Y& R is doing a phenomenal job as Jack and his doppelganger. As is Cady McClain as Kelly.

In a year a lot can happen BUT I would bet Tony has a strong chance of winning his ninth Emmy for the black and white episode. It was perfect!

@Timm – I completely agree. When I recall what Geary did in 2014 to win this award, I cannot imagine the preliminary panels passing him over for the 2015 award if the anniversary show is submitted. What he did in that episode was so amazing compared to anything he did in 2014. I also expect Dee Wallace Stone to be nominated for her guest role

@KansasGuest…..I concur that Dee Wallace will be fully deserving of a nomination for her far-too-brief guest stint on GH, although I may never forgive her character for foisting the appalling Val-Chops on Port Charles!!!!!

I thought , otherwise

that it was Laura Wright screeching and yelling at Roger Howarth, Franco

how many times… did she call him a “freak”

thereby, no GH best Serial

With only 4 shows left, a tie, REALLY?? Wish Allison had won for sentimental reasons, but Maura was deserving and gave the best performance, so I am very happy for her..Anthony Geary, you got your 8 emmy, congrats and you are very deserving of it, best performance in the lot!!!..You are the greatest actor in daytime history and most likely you will win your 9 emmy next year and I love you as an actor, but PLEASE take your name out of consideration for emmy nomination, let your other co-stars get a shot a nomination…Just seems like the right thing… Read more »

I had a lot of mixed feelings about this year’s telecast, but I must admit that it was ten times better than last year’s fiasco. Tyra Banks was too much about herself instead of hostessing the Emmys. Hope they pick someone less self-promoting next year. Her outfits were horrendous IMO. And that guy sashaying down the isle? OMG! I’ve got to agree with Shemar; they should have cut that waste of time. The event seems too much like a giant game show with everything a few select audience members got. Too much time was spent on them, which I’m sure… Read more »

Patrick I get yelled at for this but enough with Geary give him a dam life achievement award and be done with it! Funny how Michael Logan felt Slezak should quit submitting I think she has six but somehow has no problem with Geary on and on.

The Fluke storyline might not have been the best, but Tony Geary definitely deserved that Emmy. He played a role so different than anything Luke has ever been in his 37 years on the show. I didn’t find anything “ho hum” about it. Tony will almost certainly be retiring in the next few years, so other actors wll have plenty of opportunity to win in future years. But in the meantime, whether someone has 20 Emmys or zero Emmys, if they put in the quality work, they deserve to be recognized.

I luv Anthony Geary, but enough is enough. Why is there anyone else nominated. Just hand the emmy to Anthony. I was disappointed that Michael Leblanc did not win, as he is an excellent actor. Wake up yall and give someone else a chance. Eight emmys are enough. Maybe Mr Geary should remove his name as Opray did so others may have a chance. It is not fair people.

When someone can outperform/act tony they will win..
Tony is, without a doubt, the best daytime actor..
Perhaps next year some will manage to top Tony, but I doubt it..
He has some very strong performances for next year.. 🙂

Why the hell should he have to remove his name? He earned it! Fluke or no Fluke he did a fantastic job. Some would say the Patriots have won too many Super Bowls. Should they dismiss their team from the play-offs and let someone else win? Ridiculous. Other years other actors have won the Emmy. This was tony’s year AGAIN. He earned it.

Can’t believe a major network didn’t televise the emmy awards. Watch CBS the whole year and couldn’t watch it because of a cable company. Shame on you CBS, NBC and ABC. I’m really upset. Never heard of pop until now.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
