This is great news…why not get former daytime legends to host this show or someone who is currently on daytime…no Kathy Griffens or those others who were on the red carpet…enough with the trashy tacky tasteless performers who dont know a thing about daytime …I want GLAMOUR! GLAMOUR! GLAMOUR!…lol

Kathy Griffin wasn’t the problem with last year’s show. If anything, she was the only person that held any thread of professionalism together.

Not sure I am going to trust this show until I see it with my own eyes.

Timmm

Kathy Griffins has no day time ties and she is one of the meanest C list celebrities in TV history!

I do not watch Days of Our Lives but God help me I am pulling for Allison Sweeney as Best Actress she has worked her tail off for twent one year’s considered a fat kid for how long! You go Girl take it all!!!!!

Jeremy

@ Timmm – yeah, I watched her too, on CA and yes, that’s what this program needs…. someone with class and a great reputation.
She knows how to command the stage in her own right.

I say Leeza Gibbons alongside with John Tesh. He has a credit or two with Soapdish and Santa Barbara. I think they would be the perfect duo. Or, she could lead, and he could support her. 🙂

We need to mention Sharon Case is a wonderful actress who for some reason works so hard on Young and the Restless and was not mentioned at this years nomination Emmys for Daytime. We love you Sharon Case! 🙂

Amen!

Sharon Case and Melody Thomas Scott have both done great work over the years they know it and I will continue to say this the emmy is a dust collector. And neither actress lobbies for it darlings it is all politics just like Washinton DC get out there study your craft do your job and screw the rest!

Woohoo! And the program is not relegated to summer anymore. There is hope here, no? After nearly a decade of mess, the Daytime Emmys may finally come back to life like so many citizens of Port Charles!

If you have Cable or Sattelite it’s the former TVGN(TVGUIDE)NETWORK…it’s a basic channel on a lower digital tier…yeah it’s not on the Basic Cable tier for my company..but it’s the channel I go to for DVR of B&B and Y&R…at least it’s not as bad as trying to use a stand alone tv..converter box…and antenna..with one foot out the window…one elbow holding you against a wall..and constant jazz hands holding the antenna while trying to bring up the days episode of The Doctors on RETRO TV…AUUUGHHHH!!!

LeeAnn
LeeAnn

OMG Thank you for the hilarious visual! I love it. LOL I have Directv so I will be looking today. We should have it .The only problem is finding the darn thing. Way too many channels that we don’t watch but can’t get rid of because they “come with your package…sorry” yeah so I get to scroll through numerous unused channels in the vain hope that I’ll find one I want to watch..;)

LOL LeeAnn and i feel your pain about the myriad of channels that are woefully underused by us the consumers and yet..we are forced to have them..and oh yeah..you’re gonna PAY for ’em too…I gave up on retro tv…the doctors came in..I walked by the antenna and Hope Memorial was long gone to blue screen…I said things I had no idea could come out of my mouth…that should help people Timmm…and then again..one region offers something and yet..another city 5 miles away…SAME COMPANY…doesn’t offer…it’s a hoot!!

LeeAnn

I too have been shocked at what has come out of my mouth at times of great (tv watching) distress..as well as my poor husband and kids. They sit there, eyes wide, looking at each other as they are all thinking “OMG did mom just say THAT?”…lol

Timmm
Timmm

The kids today dont even screw with cable or satellite. They go with apps and internet content. Its a lot cheaper and some companies offer a internet DVR service so you can tape your shows and watch them whenever like we all have since the advent of the VCR. These cable companies used to have you over a barrel but technology is giving consumers more choices and the freedom to cut the cable if you wish.

We are all so happy to see our soap opera rewards again on Tv ,thank you everyone who worked to make this happen. That is the best news .

POP was TVGN…the TV guide network. It’s been rolling out across the board since early 2015 . If you have basic cable it should “pop” up eventually.

Candy

I don’t get POP channel on my cable company, any chance this will be on line to watch again like last year

All cable companies carry this channel…it’s like syfy or tbs

I feel you Candy…like I said above..probably the city right NEXT to you gets that channel but yours doesn’t…it’s weird…it’s just plain dumb…and you can make a stink(albeit) little man big company..and try to get it before the awards..but TRUST…the entire ceremony will show up on-line eventually…and not long after they air..I struggled with retro tv’s signal for the classic Doctors..all unnecessary.. the entirety of the episodes I found on-line already…up to date…

I think the network is a good home for the awards. POP definitely seems to have a love for the soaps with the same day recasts of Y&R and B&B as well as reruns of 90210 and Melrose Place.

I would suggest Nancy Lee Grahn as the Red Carpet host and favorite couples of the past as the presenters (Eugene and Calliope/DOOL; Lance and Lori/Y&R; Cliff and Nina/AMC) to appeal to both current as well as lapsed viewers who might be drawn back to the genre if the producers actually show clips of the nominated performances this year.

Great suggestions, Alan!

Nancy Lee Grahn is terrific, experienced and funny. Everyone loves favorite couples past and present.

Hope someone in charge is listening to you!!

Nancy is too hyper.

Thrilled about this outstanding blah blah blah… If only soap producers would really acknowledge and care for what the audience wants and likes, the soap future wouldn’t be so dire.

I think it’s a good idea.

It would be nice of it was still streamed, too. There are cable systems that don’t carry this network. Cox cable is one of them.

Mr. X

You best check again. I have Cox out here in So. Cal. and they carry POP.

Different states carry their own lineups..
What one states gets another many not..

I was told that from Comcast, today .. So???

Mr. X

States have no say in a cable company’s channel lineups. I suppose it’s possible Cox doesn’t carry POP in Don’s area of the country.

I hope the Daytime Emmy show goes back to the way it was. Show clips of the nominated actors, actresses and shows. Mr. Levitt should watch the Dick Clark Production Daytime Emmys for inspiration.

Okay, we all love soaps, but let’s not forget the other players in daytime television– it is great ALL of them are going to be treated with more respect and given a proper ceremony produced by people who actually think they deserve to be treated with class.
And unless they can get professional interviewers I would skip televising the red carpet. No one, absolutely no one wants to see the fiasco those poor souls were subjected to last year again.

I have downgraded cable services to High Speed internet only. Even when I had Cable the tier I had at some point took TV Guide away. The daytime emmys have always been a poor relation to the primetime emmys and each year I was disappointed in the broadcasts.

I will be rooting for my favorites to win, but I won’t be watching the live broadcast.

Fran

lets hope they have better host / hosts, last year was a train wreck

Rebecca1

POP was TVGN…TV guide network. It’s been making the change and rolling out to all basic cable since early this year so if u don’t have it yet you probably will.

su0000
su0000

It depends if you cable service carries POP..
there are many different cable providers.
not all cable providers carry POP and some that do carry POP may not carry if in your area..
Comcast carries POP in some areas/states and not in other..and Comcast is just one of the many providers..
Comcast use to carry TVGN in my area but dropped it in 2011 ..

Bringing back glamour??? How about bringing back honesty? That is what fans want. Last year was a joke. People winning that actually had done nothing. Real actors/actresses not even nominated. If it’s anything like last years, you know it wont be watched & then no sponsor’s will want to support it, which means no money going into it-no show.

Rodd
Rodd

I am so happy that this producer at least “talks the talk”, which I hope will lead to a classy show this year. I would LOVE to see some big name soap stars hosting and presenting and not so many “stars” outside the medium. I don’t need some prime time star without a connection to daytime to draw my attention. I watch for the soap stars. And while I acknowledge that with only four soaps left, it limits the air time in daytime. However, soaps employ three to four times the number of “stars” that a talk or kids show does. That’s my somewhat weak excuse to want my soap stars front and center. The other types of shows deserve their day in the sun, but it’s the soap stars (whether I watch them all or not) that I tune in to see. So, Mr. Levitt, I hope the hosts and presenters are selected from the daytime arena. We’re watching and hoping.

Timmm
Timmm

One step back to being relevant! I would have Michelle Stafford, Regis Philbin, Josh and Steve from Y&R and Lisa C. from GH do the red carpet. For hosting duties I love an early posters idea of Leeza Gibbons as host but also like Julie Chen. I want the show to show lots of clips and PLEASE dont try any comedy or music bits. They always fail!

Susan Nissenbaum
Susan Nissenbaum

As a huge soap fan, I too, do not have the POP channel on Cablevision! Will we be able to see it on line after it airs? Perhaps CBS can run it on late night TV? Please…… Do not disappoint us loyal soap viewers of this wonderful night of awards!

What if your cable carrier doesn’t carry POP? Any other way to watch?

DAYS Chandler Massey Chats On His Bittersweet Daytime Emmy Nomination

He’s won three Daytime Emmys in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series three years in row in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and now Chandler Massey is going for gold for the second time in his career in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series which in a field where he is competing with two co-stars from Days of our Lives among others.

Massey has long been a stand out performer, giving nuanced and emotional portrayals in the angst-ridden life of Will Horton and the love of his life, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).

Back in February of this year, DAYS fans learned that Chandler and Freddie had taped their last episodes, and since the NBC soap tapes more than 6 months ahead of air, that the two will still be on the air into the fall.  That has made this moment of recognition for Massey all the more poignant.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Chandler to get his reaction to the news that he is once again a Daytime Emmy nominee, and here’s what he had to say about it all.

Photo: JPI

 

I thought it was great that you received another Emmy nomination.  What do you think?

CHANDLER:  Yeah.  I thought it was pretty great too, actually.   I was surprised.  I wasn’t keeping up on when they were announcing the nominations.   I was thrilled that Wally (Kurth) and Paul (Telfer) also got nominated too in the same category.  So, hopefully, DAYS, has a decent shot to take it home.

What did you end up submitting that ultimately landed you the nomination?

CHANDLER:  I went with some scenes that aired on December 16th of last year (I just looked that up), where Will basically breaks up with Sonny when Sonny comes to visit him in prison.  I liked those because they were sort of subtle.  I just found myself drawn in when I watched it, and it wasn’t big or dramatic, but it felt like two real people sharing their pain.  So, that’s why I chose it.

Photo: JPI

I remember those.  Those were heartbreaking because he had to get Sonny to let him go.

CHANDLER:  Yes.  He said he has a new prison boyfriend, and that he’s doing really well in prison, so he doesn’t want to be tied down. (Laughs)

You’ve had Freddie Smith as your scene partner for so much of your run on DAYS.  What did he give you in those scenes that helped you, or even further enabled the performance that you gave?

CHANDLER:  Freddie always gives everything.  He is a consummate professional, so he really commits every time.  I think it is more that we are just so comfortable with each other that we are not afraid, and that there is no hesitation between the two of us, so we just are able to do the work.  We usually know we are there to listen to, and support each other. in the scenes.

Photo: NATAS

Was your entire submission from the prison scenes or did you include something else?

CHANDLER:  It was just that.  I know I could have included something else, but I like to keep it sort of short because I feel like as a judge, I know within a few minutes.  It’s not that I get bored, but it really only takes a scene or two, and then, you’re like, “this is something special.”  You can recognize it pretty quickly.

So, you have won three Daytime Emmys. This is your first nomination in a few years, right?

CHANDLER:  Yeah, I didn’t get nominated the year before.  I had a gap year… to my family’s great shame. (Laughs)  They were not pleased with me.

Photo: JPI

This is your second nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Daytime Drama Series category.

CHANDLER:  Yes. I was nominated in ‘Supporting’ for the first time when I came back to DAYS, and then submitted for “Lead” the next year, didn’t get nominated, and then went back to ‘Supporting’.  I learned my place.  I went back to ‘Supporting’ for this year.  (Laughs)

It’s such a game though, right?  .

CHANDLER:  Yeah, you’ve got to be smart.  I just thought, “What the heck?”  Freddie and I were like, “Maybe there’s a shot that if we pick different categories, we can both get nominated,” but then, after that didn’t work, I said, “Screw that… going back to ‘Supporting”

Now, you’ve been through Emmy night before, and this is obviously going to be a virtual Emmy’s.  Now, if they did a six-shot of all of the nominees, what would you wear?  Would you be dressed up?  Would you be casual?  What would you see yourself doing?

CHANDLER:  That’s a good question. I think maybe… I’ll do a little of both.  I’ll go the middle ground.  I’ll be in my finest bathrobe, a silk bathrobe so it’s casual but also still sort of fancy.

There you go.  (Laughs)  Is this nomination all the more special for you in that you are no longer working at DAYS? 

CHANDLER:  Oh, totally.  Every year is special, but you know, I’m not on the show anymore, so it’s a nice reminder that the work that I did had an effect on people, and it won’t be forgotten for at least a few more hours.

Photo: JPI

I saw the fan outcry and show of support for you and Freddie, when viewers got wind that you were exiting the series.  It was sad and heartwarming at the same time.  The WilSon fans are so behind you guys.

CHANDLER:  Yeah, if only they knew what horrible people that we were in real life, then they wouldn’t be this way, but thankfully… (Laughs)  Yeah, it’s really nice, but it is sad.  I started in 2009, and that was over 10 years ago, and nothing lasts forever.  I had a really, really great run, and so did Freddie.  I am very satisfied and don’t feel jipped, or like, I was entitled to anything more than I got.

Courtesy/NBC

Obviously, your co-nominees, Wally and Paul you worked with many times.  What can you say about them?

CHANDLER:  I think that both men deserve definitely to get second and third place.  (Laughs)  I have known Wally for a while now.  I love him.  I think his work is phenomenal.  I think he is really, really underrated.  Paul, I don’t know as well, but I think obviously his work speaks for himself.  If only he were physically attractive, I think that would really, really help his career.

Photo: JPI

I know, it’s a shame.

CHANDLER:  Unfortunately, he is kind of schleppy, you know?  (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

Did Freddie reach out to you after you received the nomination?  

CHANDLER:  Oh yes, he sent a text congratulating me, and we talked about it.  It was nice.  I feel like our stories are so intertwined, the scenes we submit are mostly with each other.  So, it’s really kind of a shared accolade.

So, will you be rooting for Chandler to cap off his career on DAYS with an Emmy win on June 26th during the virtual ceremony on CBS? What did you think of the nominated scenes he submitted? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
