First, entries for the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are now being accepted and submissions are open in all 86 Daytime categories.  In addition, registration is open for all qualified judges to evaluate entries.  And in some news for daytime fans, the dates for the 43rd annual Daytime Emmys ceremonies have been revealed. The Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards will take place on Friday, April 29th, 2016 while the Daytime Emmy Awards will take place on Sunday, May 1, 2016.   Both events will take place in Los Angeles, California with the venues still to be determined.

“After last year’s overwhelming response, it is with great excitement and pride that we announce, today, the opening for submissions in all Daytime Emmy Award genres,” said Bob Mauro, President, NATAS. “Having raised the Daytime franchise to compete with the other premier awards shows on television, we are anticipating a record year for entries and look forward to another outstanding celebration of everything that makes Daytime television special and unique.”

“Daytime television continues to evolve and each year I am humbled by the depth of talent and production that takes place day in and day out in our industry,” said David Michaels, Senior Executive Director, Daytime Emmy Awards. “With the proliferation of new programming and the continuous innovations in how, where and when we watch Daytime television, I am looking forward to another year of growth and excellence for the Daytime genre.”

The Daytime Emmy Awards recognize outstanding achievement in Daytime programming broadcast between the hours of 2:00AM and 6:00PM, by conferring annual awards of merit in various categories. The presentation of these awards is intended to be an incentive for the continued pursuit of excellence. Eligible programs must have originally aired between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015.

Regarding submissions, NATAS is offering two closing dates: an “early deadline” provides entrants a lower fee if they submit by November 23, 2015. The final deadline for all submissions is December 22, 2015. Judges of entries to the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards must be qualified as a peer in their craft and active members in either NATAS or ATAS (Television Academy).  Complete rules can be found here.

I do not watch the Emmys.. The soap awards in comparision of time devoted for them and the whole of daytime tv is not interesting to me as I do not watch daytime tv to care of other shows .. Also– ALL the soaps have great performances from great actors but not all will win, even if they deserve to win, and I don’t like that .. I would imagine Tony/Luke will get his 9th emmy And Ron will get one for the 50th anniversary week of the black and white show which is renowned as an all time soap… Read more »

Nominees need to include Melissa Clair Egan and Justin Hartley as Chelsea and Adam on Y&R. Finola Hughes, Maura West from GH and James Read and Robert Scott Wilson from DAYS. The rest I could care less. Just leave Peggy McKay out of the running and Hunter King needs to go to acting school. How she won two previous awards is beyond me.

Some submit others do not..

Oh I couldn’t agree more but Hunter King is a close friend to the boss so you know she’ll win again. It is a shame she should never have won any of the awards. Hopefully Halloween night party she’s the one that dies. I believe the 4 people that worked their butts off are Melissa C.Egan/Justin Hartley( Adam 7 Chelsea from Y& R and B&B Thorsten Kaye/Linsey Godfrey (Ridge & Caroline)

James Read should be nominated and then go on to win. He more than deserves the Emmy.

Kassie DePaiva deserves an Emmy. Her performances for Paige’s death scenes were fabulous. Hope she submits a nomination!

Im expecting alot of nominations from B&B most likely Karla Mosley, Jacob Young, Linsey Godfrey, Thorstan Kaye, Jacqueline MacInnis Wood, Person Fode, Reign Edwards, Winsor Harmon & Ashlyn Peirce. Also I will be very disappointed if Karla doesn’t submit in the leading actress category so I’m counting that. I’m taking Brad Bell’s statement that she is a leading lady to heart so she better be in that category.

Liz
Guest

Kassie DePaiva definitely deserves a nomination for her recent work. And Freddie Smith should submit his scenes in the hospital after the Will/Paul reveal. Christopher Sean’s depiction of Paul’s coming out to his family, over the phone no less, also deserves a nom. James Read was also excellent.

Darnell

Gh, this could be another good year for awards. Outstanding performances so far from Ana, Carly, Sonny, Liz, Nicolas, Sam, and Dante.

Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso deserve an Emmy win in the leading category. Even though Reckelll’s return was brief it was solid and gut wrenching as we watched his character die in his true love’s arms. Alfonso’s performance has been stellar!

Marybeth Evans, Kassie DePaiva & Peggy McKay all deserve nods and a win in the supporting category.

Team Days of our Lives !

Definitely Peter Reckell. He’s acting during he’s short return was unbelievable. So heartbreaking watching him in chains only to escape and die in Hope’s arms. Best acting I have seen in a long time. Also agree with Arianne Zucker she showed such incredible emotions during Daniel’s death.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
