Great I look forward to the daytime Emmys after last year was so much better than it had been in so many years. It was also fun to live tweet while that was on. It’s fun to live tweet on most things on TV.

OMG I hope Chelsea & Adam from Y & R put in for an emmy. They both deserve it.

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 greats by the critics ..

This year;
I would like to know the names and positions of the judges for the soaps.

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.

The actors need to submit themselves.. Nobody nominates them.
Some submit others do not..
f it were me- I would not submit myself and put myself through that folly..

I agree; Hunter is gawdawful.. I was shocked when she got an award..
goes to show how the judges might judge with a pity vote .. hahaa!

There are people who like Hunter King aka Summer a whole lot. I don’t see it myself.

Peggy Mccay has given great performance so far this year.

Nikki

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.

I would love to see Jonathan Jackson get a nomination for guest performer in a drama series,his scenes with Geary on Elizabeth’s porch,were some of his best work on GH.

B&B will get a boatload of nominations due to their transgender storytline involving Maya, Rick, and Nicole.

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

sarah

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
Liz

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
Darnell

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

Leese

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 !

Kelly Thomson

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.

I Just hope they broadcast it on a better channel this year!….the channel they chose last year is not available in Canada!

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

Today is a bittersweet day for longtime daytime favorite, Galen Gering.  While on Wednesday; he is celebrating his birthday! (Happy birthday, Galen!), he is also finishing up his last day at Days of our Lives as Rafe Hernandez; a role he has played for the last ten years-plus.

In a heartfelt posting on his Instagram, Galen shared special thanks to all of his fans who watched his during his run in Salem.

Gering expressed: “Thank you all so much for the incredible birthday wishes. I’ve always seen birthdays as a day of reflection, an opportunity to look back at where I’ve been and where I’m going. So, it’s oddly befitting that today also happens to be my last day at Days. Man…I have such great memories from the last 10 years. Onscreen I’ve fought for marriages and fought evil twins. I’ve put people in prison and been imprisoned. And offscreen, I’ve made friendships that I will have for a lifetime. All the while, I’ve been so fortunate to have the love and support of the greatest fans in the world. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you at my side. With that said, the journey continues and I hope to bring you along for the ride. Thanks for the memories Days of our Lives. Like sands through the hourglass… Love Y’all”
