42nd Annual Daytime Emmys: What Did You Think Of The Telecast?

On Sunday night, April 26th the stars of daytime television stepped out for the 42nd annual Daytime Emmys with a return to television and broadcast on Pop.   The ceremonies for the first time were held at stage 16 on the Warner Brothers Studio lot.  Hosted by Tyra Banks, the two hour plus telecast featured several notable moments in the show.

Days of our Lives was given its due for its upcoming 5oth anniversary celebration with a moving clip package looking through the sands of the hourglass with memorable moments from the show as Deidre Hall (Marlena) anchored the segment and the cast and EP Ken Corday took an on-stage bow.  The show would later tie for the Outstanding Drama Series.  Tessanne Chin, winner of season five of the The Voice, performed “What I Did For Love” alongside a montage of some of the most romantic scenes and heartbreak from love stories on the soaps.

Television icon Betty White was bestowed a “Lifetime Achievement Award” during which Regis Philbin, Tom Bergeron, Fred Willard, Marie Osmond and Charo played a game of Password which celebrated her love of the game show and many appearances during its run.  The 93 year old’s best television moments were featured in a career showcase spanning more than 60 years and seven Emmy Awards.   The late comedian and television legend Joan Rivers was remembered and her emotional Daytime Emmy Awards speech from her 1990 win moved the audience.  Joan’s daughter Melissa Rivers gave tribute to her mother and introduced the In Memoriam tribute. Singer Babyface performed “Gone to Soon” as talent from the daytime community was remembered.

Drama Series was presented by now 8-time Daytime Emmy winner Anthony Geary alongside his longtime scene partner Genie Francis as GH’s Luke and Laura were reunited once again on stage to give out the final category of the night.

School teacher Sharon Hofreiter was made the Cinderella of the Daytime Emmy telecast when she presented with The Young and the Restless Daniel Goddard (Cane), who was her favorite daytime actor.   Sharon was surprised at her school when Daniel walked in front of a school staff meeting and asked her to present with him at the Emmys! The clip package of the moment was shown to the audience prior to Sharon and Daniel presenting their award.

Throughout the show some of the fan favorite voting categories winners were revealed from viewers votes leading up to the Emmys on Pop’s website including: Best Bitch-Slap, and Favorite Wedding Disaster.

Days of our Lives Freddie Smith (Sonny)  gave one of the best speeches of the night when he won for Outstanding Younger Actor and Amelia Heinle (Victoria)  from The Young and the Restless was almost speechless in her second victory in a row for Outstanding Supporting Actress.

So, what were your thoughts on this year’s Daytime Emmys? Would you give it a high-five … a thumbs up … a thumbs down?  Did you enjoy the emotional moments dedicated to the soaps throughout the show?  Watch a view  shortened clips via Pop of some of the highlights of the night from the broadcast below!

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 things go longer. He should just donate some money to charity, but I guess he wanted to be on everyone’s lips. The game to introduce Betty White was not good. Show us more clips, either of Betty or the nominees.… Read more »

I live in Ontario, Canada and I couldn’t get the Daytime Emmys on any channel here. I don’t have access to POP on Rogers Cable. Is it available to watch online now? I also want to watch the Queens of Drama. What about fans in Canada? How can we watch?

I live in Ontario too. Unfortunately the only links that I have found to actually watch the show online (YouTube) require you to pay and use a credit card for validation. Not willing to do that. If anyone knows of any links that are free and aren’t geicoded to the US. I’d really like to watch the show.

Honestly the best daytime Emmys in 10 years. Tyra did a great job. It had a very young vibe to it. It wasn’t tacky like the Vegas ones were and it wasn’t boring like the HLN and stuffy. Loved the Betty White tribute, the Days tribute and Joan Rivers tribute. Coupled with great winners Maura and Tony winning was fabulous. A great emmys and it was the biggest ratings in pop in 8 yesrs. Hopefully we get many more years here.

General Hospital was robbed for best writing and best show. Camila Banus was robbed as well, and i thought Amlia Henle shouldnt have won supporting actress. Being on the Pop network which is owned by CBS it seemed to me everything slanted in CBSs direction. Even the video montages cut away when there were GH scenes.

Judith Sekscenski
Guest

Disappointed that when the montages were played on the big screens, the camera spent way too much time on the singers. I kept thinking I was missing stuff. And yes I agree about the CBS thing. I don’t remember seeing anything spectacular from Amelia Hienle. It should have gone to Lisa LoCicero from GH!

POP did a great job in bringing back the telecast and restoring some dignity to it (which had been sorely lacking for a few years). I don’t understand why Betty White got a Lifetime Achievement Emmy when most of her notable work was in prime time. Where daytime is concerned, she was mostly a frequent guest on Password. And that should not have qualified her for this. The Cinderella bit was unnecessary, as was the Password skit. This type of telecast does not need silly fluff to be entertaining. I would have much preferred to see actual clips of performances… Read more »

Betty White was a pioneer in daytime television. She often anchored hours each day when TV was black and white and live. She was a frequent game show/talk show guest and hosted at least one game show (winning an Emmy for it). She did her memorable turn on THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. And how many reruns of her on MARY TYLER MOORE and THE GOLDEN GIRLS have filled daytime hours? She was a face often seen on daytime and she is universally loved.

I too was glad the daytime community recognized Joan Rivers.

Betty White was a recurring guest star on Bold and the Beautiful. She played the character of Stephanie’s and Pam’s mother. Then her character died, I think of natural causes.

I think she also was a guest host on The View and other daytime shows. Not too sure though…

I can’t believe that I know this….. Betty was the first woman to host a daytime game show. It was in the late 70’s or early 80’s and called “Just Men.” Also, she spent a LOT of time appearing as a celebrity panelist on daytime game shows: Password (which her husband hosted) and Match Game. Betty may have done a LOT of work late in her career on night time television. However, given the longetivity of her career, it is easy to forget that she has worked in a LOT of different areas. Personally, I think the recognition was well… Read more »

What “Cinderella bit”?

Betty White deserved her award.

Enjoyed the tribute to Joan and seeing the clip from when she won an Emmy. I thought the whole in memoriam was nice, even if I didn’t know a lot of the people, it was nice to see.

Joan also had a daytime show called the Joan Rivers Show back in the late 1980’s-90’s. She won an award for that show in the early 90’s. I think that show was syndicated in daytime, whereas Fashion Police is a primetime show on E!

Overall, I thought the Daytime Emmy’s broadcast on POP was excellent! It brought back a high level of class & respect for the genre of Daytime television & those who make it that had been GROSSLY lacking in recent years! I thought the tributes were appropriate & well done, although I would have liked to have seen more of the footage of the iconic soap super-couples being shown on the big screens at the venue, vs. the singer singing “What I Did For Love” (although she did a nice job). I feel that the shows host, Tyra Banks was WAY… Read more »

Disappointed for many reasons, not in any particular order. They did not annonce the names o Days actors on stage and did not show them all during 50th tribute. Re: Best love scenes, camera stayed on fairly unknown singer from The Voice whose name most of us do not know. We missed the best most of the time! We want to see our soap peeps that was on the large screen and only audienve members could see. Steve Harvey, usually cool, put down the audience at show’s beginning. At the finale, he called it the Daytime Grammy’s. Was Tyra an… Read more »

All-in all, it was a good production that if on a budget, didn’t show it. While Tyra Banks is not my cup of tea, she did very well hosting the gig. A backstage host might have enhanced the production. The show got down to the awards and didn’t have a lot of fluff. Good job.

I expected to Fast Forward through most of it only to watch when the soap awards were given out but I have to say I thought it was a good show !

I liked the ceremony a lot and am grateful that Daytime got some respect after years of disrespect from previous ceremonies. POP did a great job, and Tyra was okay. As for the winners/losers, some of the acting awards had me scratching my head, and as for the Best Drama award, what does it say when 2 out of 4 nominees (out of 4 remaining soaps) win? Is that really a victory for the two shows who took home the Emmy? I’m not so sure it is. I liked the tribute to DOOL. I wish that there had been a… Read more »

Overall it was very well done and a huge improvement over the past several years. BUT they showed the wrong clip for Lisa LoCicero and then stopped showing clips altogether. The Guest Actor In a Drama Series should have been presented on Sunday night, not at the Creative Arts Emmys which were untelevised. And there were too many silly time consuming game skits, the viewer audience nonsense and Tyra was too long winded about her defunct modeling show and her talk show to be. All that used up precious time that could have been used to show the actor’s clips… Read more »

Overall the show was much better than when HLN ran it, Tyra Banks was so annoying and definitely not funny. If this was an indication of what her show will be like I predict another failure for this OLTL replacement. Susan Lucci or some other Soap icon should have hosted. I wish they showed clips from all the categories instead of just the Supporting Actor/Actress. Wtf was that Matt Lauer crap!

I was happy for the performers that their awards were telecast this time around. Any tribute to Betty White is worthwhile IMO. BUT…I didn’t like the director’s decision to focus on singers during the clip montages instead of on the clips, which is what the audience wants to see. We want to see the retrospective along with the audience. We don’t want to see repeated closeups of a singer’s back molars. Isn’t hearing them sing enough?

I have to say I was at first a little obnoxious in my review because I was trying to compare the daytime Emmy with the prime time Emmy and it’s not fair they’re totally two different beast, so after realizing that in my opinion it wasn’t that bad, although as enthusiastic as Tyra banks is, I’m not sure she was right for it, I found Steve Harvey who presented would’ve been a better choice. Beyond that their was a few things that stuck out like only the supporting actress category showed the actors acting reel, all the other acting categories… Read more »

They submitted day one of the Nurses Ball, and the episode with the Ava/Nina baby drama and Michael confronting Sonny about killing AJ, and I think their mistake was not picking two dramatic episodes. Some people might find the Nurses Ball over the top and campy, but if they had submitted two dramatic episodes like Y&R did, I think they would have had a much better shot. Instead of the Nurses Ball, they should have submitted the “Hallowedding” episode. That was one of the best shows they did all year. I get that they picked two episoded that show the… Read more »

They stopped showing the clips of the nominees because right away they started running over in time. So, instead of nixing those ridiculous skits to save time, they chose badly to stop showing the nominee clips. Another bad production choice.

It was not a perfect presentation but it was good to have the program back on cable (still odd since most of daytime programming is still broadcast based). I was not overly thrilled with Tyra Banks and her antics. I was disappointed the memoriam and romance montages were often lost to home viewers to feature the vocalists, talented as they were.

So glad that the show was broadcast on tv (as opposed to either not at all or the internet again). That said, this show was a hot mess. Tyra Banks was dreadful. She was unintelligible in her opening rap. The rap itself was unnecessary and stupid. Why not have a host (calling Steve Harvey, Meredith Vierra, heck, I’ll settle for Big Bird) simply welcome everyone to the Emmys and show us a montage of highlights from the past year (soap highlights, funny game show answers, Barbara Walters last View broadcast, etc.)? Afterward, introduce the first set of presenters. The bits… Read more »

Yes, that rap was hideous and it was so short. I thought if you’re going to do it, make it worthwhile.

Also, introduce the singer BEFORE they sing.

Giving away a vacuum was so strange. I thought it was a joke.

IT WAS HORRIFIC!!! Tyra Banks continually flubbed her lines. Her wardrobe was awful. She tried being gangsta-throwing the mic on the floor. Then she acted trashy because she had to crawl across the floor to pick it back up. She told people to kiss her ass. She screamed into the mic as if no one could hear her. There was time set aside for her to shamelessly promote her new show which was totally inappropriate. Terrible, terrible host. Steve Harvey told the audience they “suck”! The venue was certainly below par. The winners were not given enough time to thank… Read more »

Telling people to kiss her ass was a homage (for lack of a better word) to years ago when she was photographed in a bathing suit and called fat. On her talk show she spoke about this and told them to kiss her ass. That said, I don’t think it was appropriate to put it in this show. It happened years ago and not everyone knew the history.

Also, running over time almost immediately so they stopped showing the nominees clips. Very bad decision. Those inane time wasting skits should have been cut instead to save time & kept the clips in. Also, the mics that had people constantly bending over to talk into. Couldn’t afford an adjustable mic to accommodate varying heights?

It was the little things like the microphone not being adjusted to the right height, the delay with their voices vs their lips, Tyra’s horrible outfits, the game show “episodes”, the IN MEMORIUM should have focused completely on the ones who have passed and not the singer! There were alot of things that werent needed and alot that could have been added to make this show classier.

I think re the In Memoriam segment, when they showed the singer they were not showing the cards of who died. That was my take.

Presenters don’t give out awards only to shows they’ve been on. The best drama award is the big one of the night so I think it is an honor to present it.

I thought the show was a vast improvement over last years streaming & the HLN years. I hear the ratings were respectable too.

The CBS, Tyra & Divas promotion did border on shameless.

For the most part, I enjoyed the program. Tyra Banks had a few moments which I didn’t like. I’d much rather see Regis or someone who has actually had experience on daytime TV. The Betty White tribute was very nice. Fitting (although somewhat cheesy) for the Password game intro. When the montage of clips were on, I really wanted to see the clips — not the singer. All in all, I’m just glad the show was back on television.

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 . #❤️ #😘”
