    Congratulations, Mark Teschner! I couldn’t agree more that he is an amazing casting director. He really hit the bullseye with the new Dillon & Kiki replacement. He found excellent child actors who could play young Patricia, Luke & Bobbie Spencer while holding their own against GH heavyweights Tony Geary & Laura Wright (talk about a risky episode). And, IMO, the additions of Curtis, Andre & Jordan have blended quite seamlessly into the cast. Incorporating established actors with new talent is not easy. Time and again, Teschner proves that he can spot the right person for the role.

        Even when casting is spot on, the writers need to take notice of an actor’s strengths. Teschner isn’t responsible for storylines. But, I do think he picks actors who can go a lot of different ways, giving the writers more to work with. He’s not perfect. Shari Belafonte is not the best replacement for Mayor Lomax IMO. Time has not smoothed over that portrayal. But, I’m convinced getting Rebecca Budig for Hayden Barnes resulted in a more complex character than they planned because she does sympathetic ambiguity so well.

      Mark Teschner USED to be a great casting director–not so much in the last few years.

    Outstanding Music Direction and Composition for a Drama Series
    Days of our Lives, NBC

    well…. heck

    could this be Ken Corday actual contribution :

    University of California, Santa Cruz in 1977; master’s degree in music composition

      Yes, Ken Corday won an Emmy for Killing Will. THAT was the episode KC and his musical team submitted and won for!

      This would have slipped under the radar, if Days facebook leaker hadn’t publicized it yesterday. Oops!

      We now know that Ken Corday and his musical team created original music for Killing Will – and that Days paid for a real 43-piece orchestra to play it!

      Now, put that together with the fact that Days decided NOT to pay for Will’s in-laws to attend his funeral, and you have an awkward fact for those who like to think that all the anti-gay messaging so evident in the Kill Will Daysaster was accidental:

      Days paid for new and orchestra-played music to accompany the gruesome murder of their gay legacy maximally-back-burned character! And then they DIDN’T pay for his in-laws to attend his funeral.

      Conclusion: they knew exactly what they were doing, and the anti-gay messaging was totally deliberate and planned. (This has of course been obvious to a great many from the beginning because of the sheer number of anti-gay and anti-gay family strikes since Corday employed Griffley. This latest revelation just adds another ugly fact to the gaynocide evidence pile).

        Yes that sucks royally and I hope that gets changed. I view these awards as our ‘reward f’or fans’ continued support and viewing of the soaps. It’s a major disappointment( to put it mildly) grrr not to see it aired anymore. Personally my position now is if it can’t be aired for the fans to see ,why should we care who wins what anymore?

Friday night was a good night for daytime!  With its first foray back on to network television since 2011, the Daytime Emmy kudofest, while for the first time held this year virtually, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scored very well in its timeslot.

The CBS broadcast averaged 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating.  That is way up from the last time viewers saw the award show on TV when it was on cable network POP TV back in 2015 with just over 900,000 viewers for its initial broadcast.

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.

The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International

How The Virtual Daytime Emmys Came Together And Will Look and Feel

Friday night, daytime fans, soap fans, and all the hard working people in front of the camera and behind the scenes that make your favorite soap operas come to life; will be awaiting the announcement in 15 categories to see who is the recipients of this year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmys.

The show finally back on network TV and on CBS, and according to Variety the show is going to be pre-taped, but to keep the element of surprise, presenters  appearing on the Emmys were asked to tape 5 different envelope openings — and every nominee in the major categories presented will have been asked to tape an acceptance speech.

As for keeping the winners’ identities under wraps, NATAS President and CEO Adam Sharp shared: “We’ve established an internal process so that actual knowledge of the winner is kept as a need-to-know basis on a category-by-category basis.  Certainly as we get closer to final delivery of the show, on the week of the 26th, there will be those who start seeing the whole picture come together. But obviously, a big goal of that is keeping that circle small.”

Look for more clips and visuals than usual in the virtual Daytime Emmys.  According to ATI’s, Al Schwartz who is executive producing the telecast: “Since it’s pre-taped, we can really present, for the viewers’ entertainment, the best possible visuals for each nominee. There’s going to be time to breathe in this show. And also, there’s time to keep the pacing up, so that it doesn’t get monotonous.”

The ladies of The Talk serve as hosts for Daytime’s biggest night, even though everyone will be shown from their homes.  It all starts at 8 p. m. EST/7 p. m. CST and tape delayed on the west coast airing at 8 p. m. PST.

So, how do you think the first ever virtual Daytime Emmys will be? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
